He never wanted to be a THIEF But it was fate Emenanjo did everything he could not to fall in the dark corner reserved for orphans like himelf. He would never be a criminal nor do any illicit activities, he promised himself. Abandoned at the hospital when he was 3 days old by his mother, he never knew his family. He grew up in an orphanage run by a selfish governess who made him and other boys work hard for their meals. He sought solace in another young orphan, Okafor. The two boys bonded quickly and they became inseparable from childhood to adulthood. In the hard reality of life in the eastern part of Nigeria, Emenanjo and his friend struggle to ease the stigma attached to orphans. The true love between them seems to have helps them overcome this stigma until one unfortunate day, when every happiness Emenanjo had knew was unexpectedly destroyed. And he became that THIEF he never wanted to become. He stole from a church goer, and a sudden spell of madness sprinkled on the congregation, who started chasing after him.What everyone didn't expect was a long amusing chase from streets to the roads, from roads to another town. And no one knew how the chase is going to end.
