On the Lagos-Ibadan Express Road, a Pastor, Wale Orimeshin was waved down at a Police Checkpoint by a team of policemen who, quite naturally wanted ‘something’ from him. Since the Pastor was not prepared to part with ‘anything’, the Policemen became officious.

One of the policemen requested to see the Pastor’s Driver’s License and the Vehicle Particulars which the Pastor promptly released to him. Nothing faulty was found. But the policeman wanted to nail the ‘stubborn’ Pastor.
He demanded to see the Pastor’s fire extinguisher. The Pastor opened up the boot of his car to pick up the fire extinguisher and handed it over to the inquisitive Policeman.
Still adamant on finding an incriminating fault with Pastor or his car or both, the Policeman moved to the front of the Pastor’s car and asked him to open the bonnet. Cross checking the car’s engine number written on the vehicle’s license with that inscribed on the engine block, the eagle eyed policeman claimed that the way letter U was written on the paper, it looked like letter V. So, turning away from the Pastor and moving towards the Senior Police Officer-in-Charge of the road block, shouting, “Stolen Vehicle, Sir”
Sensing trouble and unnecessary delay, even though he knew he had not committed any offense, the Pastor also went to the officer-in-charge, called him aside, and said in low tones that he was a priest.
The SPO more or less barked at him, saying, “Please, leave this Pastor thing. But by the way, as a Pastor, you must be very conversant with the content of the Holy Bible. If you have your Holy Bible here I want to draw your attention to what is written in the book of Mathew Chapter 5 verse 25 and 26. Swiftly the Pastor brought out his copy of the Holy Bible, opened it to the passage and read out “Settle matters quickly with your adversary who is taking you to court. Do it while you are still with him on the way, or he may hand you over to a judge, and the judge may hand you over to the officer, and you may be thrown into prison. I tell you the truth; you will not get out until you have paid the last penny”
At that point, the Pastor quietly made an ‘offering’ of N1000 to his newly found ‘Preacher’. Receiving the ‘offering’ the Senior Police Officer in charge said, “Go in peace and argue no more”
The Pastor moved towards his car muttering, “So, Policemen also read the Holy Bible!”
