AKIN AND THE STOLEN MEAT

Once upon a time, there was a boy called Akin. Akin had a bad habit of dipping his finger into the soup pot's, whether it was his mother's or any soup pot in the neighbourhood often the soup would go sour and their owners would be wondering what went wrong.

Akin continued with the habit until he was caught read-handed one sunny afternoon, with meat stuck in his throat in a neighbour's kitchen.

When the owner of the kitchen came in and saw Akin trying hard to spit out the meat, she started shouting, thief, thief!! thief!!! People gathered and some tried to get the meat out but could not. Surprisingly when the woman tried out came the meat.

Akin was beaten and made to dance around the village square with empty milk cans and leaves hung around his neck. By evening that day, he was on his kneels crying and begging for forgiveness. He was forgiven and he promised to stop stealing.
