As Pope John Paul II was dying; he sent for James Ibori and Peter Odili to come to the Vatican .
When they arrived, they were ushered to his bedroom.
As they entered, the clergyman held out his hands and motioned them to sit on each side of the bed.
The Pope grasped their hands, sighed contentedly, smiled and stared at the ceiling.
For a time, no one said anything.
Both Ibori and Odili were touched and flattered that the old Pope would ask them to be with him during his final moment.
They were also puzzled because the Pope never gave any indication that he liked either one of them.
Finally, Ibori asked, "Fader, wettin make you ask d
Two of us to come here?"
The old Pope mustered up some strength and said weakly,
"Jesus died between two thieves...I will like to die like him"
