Executive editor of the Bespoke pan-African online newspaper, UK, REPORT AFRIQUE International Comrade Phils has taken to his social media account to express his condolences to the victim of a love scam who was killed by her boyfriend.
He believes people cannot change and has learnt the hard way. Further, Comrade Phils took inspiration from his personal experience, stating that he had a staff who stole a curtain in his office some years back. He said that we looked for this curtain and joined others in denying he knew anything about its disappearance.
Later, he learned that the same individual stole it one day with some luck. I confronted him, and he confessed and cried, pleading for forgiveness.
Philip admitted that he should have sacked him that day, but he had an urgent trip out of town the same day. He had just an hour to my flight, so he rushed to catch the flight. Comrade Phils said that he had to leave for Abuja. He wanted to sack him when he returned from my trip.
Further, Comrade Phil recounted that I returned to PH the following week to find that the same guy had stolen equipment from my studio. The equipment in question included a MacBook containing valuable files worth N2.4M, which disappeared. I regretted not firing him immediately; I knew he tended to steal.
The executive editor stated that the same has repeatedly happened in my life with many people. Hence, adults cannot truly change old habits. If they do, it is a rare percentage that does. Only children can truly change, which must be if they are corrected in their infant age. There will never be a second chance. If there is, it will be from a distance. Even at that, you will always be suspicious of me. This guy did repeatedly show that he was dishonest and mischievous.
Sadly, the deceased did not do her homework well, or maybe she ignored the signs.
May God rest her soul.
