The son was really touched by his father’s letter so he thought a plan, and replied his father "Dad don't even think of digging the field because that's where I buried the money I stole".
The POLICEMEN on reading this letter went early in the morning and dug the whole field in search of the money but nothing was found.
The next day the son wrote his father again "Dad you can now plant your cassava and yam this is the best I can do from here."
Dad replied "My son, you are too powerful indeed, even in prison you still command policemen to work for me. I was so surprised to see the IGP and his team holding hoes and shovels, digging my farm. I will write to you when I want to harvest."
