You know i keep saying that your towel is essential in your everyday life and should be taken care of because the part that wipe your face today will wipe your ass tomorrow.
Jacob never knew his father and has lived his life a problem child, preferred the street to the house and remained his mother's nightmare until he landed himself into a situation that is about to terminate his existence on this planet. When the old man was accused of being a ritualist, little did those that accused him knew that it would turn out the way it did. The old man was chased down the road and stripped while being beaten up by angry youths and in the quest to save himself from his accusers and attackers, he decided to take a chance by running but his widest act of bravery to run turned out sour when a young man raised his hands holding a sharp dagger, the entrance point of the dagger into the old man's groin was all that was needed to prepare his funeral.
None of this attackers was caught until the game changer came up, thanks to an amateur photographer because the police were able to identify the actual killer and a cold case which almost died like others in a country where lawlessness is the order of the day, a country where people carry out jungle justice that always end with the innocent being the victim became a hot case because at Jacob's apprehension and arraignment before the jury, his mother walked into the court to testify against him but also have something else to tell him...
...Jacob my son, you were a good kid until the devil chose you and turned you into his workshop, i tried as a single mother to help you but you became my nightmare, you grew into a monster and today i wipe not because you will be hanged if convicted but because the man you killed is your father. I knew that one day i will find him, i promised you that we would find him but never knew that it would be this way, son you have destroyed me completely but i am glad that i finally found the man that i truly loved though you killed him and i am going to bury him yet i am glad because my soul will now have rest.
Jacob broke down crying but his tears cannot reverse the situation.
