"I got information about his son just as you have asked. Guess what guys? He is an addict." David said with a scoff as I sat up. What more could you expect from a spoilt kid like him. I rolled my eyes in disgust.
"Also, he just returned from Canada. He was said to have been studying but his father sent him to a rehabilitation centre." He added as I turned to him.
"So, is he cured?" I asked as he shook his head.
"No damn way! He only caused trouble but his dad doesn't know. Three criminal cases in five years. He pulled a great one out there." David mocked.
"I really wonder how you get deep information that his father doesn't know. I applaud you Dave." Abigail said as David smiled.
"My source is the best. These hands are magical." He winked as she laughed.
"So Ish, what do you plan on doing with the son? And even with the old man too. Any co
Ten -- IseoluwaI was dressed totally in black as usual when I bumped into fake cop. Wait, what? He is really a cop!"I can't believe you are a cop." I muttered with a smirk."I did tell. At least my uniform did justice to your disbelief." He boasted as I huffed."I am pretty sure you are a rookie. A new recruit." I retorted with a wink as he frowned."You look like a serial killer with that tongue of yours and the overall black. I am suspicious." He whispered the last part as I laughed. You were damn right."Uh-oh! I am shaking right now." I mocked with a roll of my eyes. I don't know why I feel so edgy around him."Or perhaps I am right? Are you really a criminal?" He asked as I nodded."Yeah. I kill humans." I deadpanned."Whatever. I am off. How about you find a job too?" He mocked as I glared at him."A c
Eleven -- EwawummiI grabbed my keys before putting on my jacket. Ini rushed in as he took in my outfit. "Boss, again?" He groaned as I walked out.He slammed the door and followed me with a lot of complaint. "Which case are we going to solve this time around?" He muttered as I stopped before turning slowly to him."We are about to find out. Team 5 has a lot of cases, we are going to help." I said before walking forward."What? We have more than enough. Boss, do you want us to get killed? This is getting absurd. If you really love over working, why don't you do it alone." He shouted as I flinched.Well, I know it wasn't his fault. He had every reason to fight. In the span of three to four days, I became something else. That guy's death affected me psychologically. I still kept holding unto his burnt jacket. He was my first indirect murder. I dragged an innocent citizen into this and I killed
Twelve -- Kunle"It's all done Sir." I reported to boss as he nodded. I was already running errands like carrying case files from one team to another. I never knew they were heavy and neither did I know that cases in the Police station were these much. People were quite funny. Imagine filing a case for a snack theft. It all didn't worth five hundred naira and the police were expected to report to the crime scene."Get ready. We need to check a crime scene. It's a murder case. Consider this as a great opportunity. No recruit get to witness a murder crime scene in their first two months of joining the force. It's not up to a week that you have resumed. I hope you carefully take note of everything." My boss explained slowly as I nodded with a smile."I promise boss. I would impress you a lot." I said before walking away. We would leave in ten minutes. I ran straight to the cafeteria to grab a burger. I hastily ate it a
Thirteen -- Iseoluwa"Wait, what? She is a slave in his house for the past six years? How could he do that?" David shouted repeating Eric's words."For real, that man is a huge jerk. He enrolled her into a prestigious school for a year in order to convince her father. But ever since that year ended, she has been working as a maid." Eric classified as Abigail clenched her fist."I don't know all about this but that person is a beast. I would definitely do all that is in my power to ruin his son. The goods have arrived." Johnny said I smiled."About the goods, he said he is interested. I told him I was going to get it from where I hid it. He requested for fifteen packs. How do we go about it?" Eric asked as I thought for a while."Let's deal with the labourer's daughter first. After that, we would come in with the drugs. But for now, I need to kidnap that girl from the house. She is the on
Fourteen -- EwawummiI ran straight to boss. I needed to hear it right from him. I knocked as the door opened."Yeah, we were waiting for you. Did you hear?" He asked as I nodded."Yes sir. I heard a little but came here for the full details. How was he killed? Is the scene still pure?" I asked as he stood up."Let's go to the scene." We stepped out and I told Ini to tag along. He smiled before greeting. I slowly pushed the door opened as we walked in. His body had been carried out already. His posture was marked with a red marker. The cleaner's dress was sprawled on the floor that means he didn't leave in the cleaner's form."Was he clothed when he was found?" I asked as I picked up the cloth."No he wasn't. He only had his undergarments on." Boss replied as I turned to him."In order words, he must have left in his clothes. Looking at this initia
Chapter Fifteen -- IseoluwaWe all sat round the table at the hotel. We were in Abigail's room. Funke was a little scared as she kept rubbing her palms."Who are you guys?" She said slowly as I stared."We are people who are interested in freeing you dad. We need your help to get your dad's statement." I explained as she nodded."Statement for what? I hope you aren't trying to threaten him to something wrong right?" She said firmly as I sighed."Of course no. We are really trying to help." Abigail answered her softly as she nodded."So, what am I supposed to do? How do I help?" She asked as I smiled."Shall we?" I turned to Abigail who nodded in response. ***We waited patiently for the labourer to come out. On seeing us, he
Sixteen -- KunleI sprawled on my bed after returning from the hospital. My phone rang. I sighed before stretching my arms to reach it. Without bothering to look at the caller, I picked it."Oh my, you did pick up." She said as I groaned. Why did I pick it up?"Should I go off?" I retorted as I can imagine her shaking her head."No, son. I really wanted to hear your voice. It's been days since you have left. I haven't heard from you enough. I was really worried..." I cut her off."Cut to the chase mom, would you?" I snapped. I really can't keep playing nice."Oh... Okay. Have you been eating well? Also, how have you been finding work?" She spoke softly as I sighed. I really should try being nice."Mom, I have been eating. Also, work has been cool. Are you satisfied?" I said slowly trying not to shout."Alright then. But, I still think being the Poli
Seventeen -- Iseoluwa"You are looking really pretty." I said smiling as she sighed adjusting the maid dress."Seriously Eric, you owe me one." Abigail stated plainly as Eric laughed before nodding."That's the only way. Tonight is the best time to strike and you would be the inner strike we have. I am giving him the drugs today. So, find a way to leak that out. I would be there to communicate too. Don't worry." He stated softly as she nodded."Alright, let's get going. Are you done packing the goods?" She said as he nodded."Johnny already helped with that one. He would leave when we see that this is a total progress." He added as I dialed David's number."What's up with the girl? Are things going as we planned?" I asked as he laughed."We are back at the hotel. I would explain when we get in." He said as I nodded waiting for him."David is c
