Shola: I miss you Henry. Please pick my call. It’s been past 2 weeks now, I’ve not had sex. I’ve not been laid. I have not felt like a real woman. It’s been a long time since we’ve made love, and I kind of miss it. Please Henry, i love you. Pick my call. Shola flung her phone beside the bed, she couldn’t sleep as planned. Tears trickled down her cheeks. She really missed Henry’s touch and she could imagine it. She prayed for Henry return, as soonest like yesterday
The tallest replied and smiling,
“That’s good. All you need do is bring fifteen thousand naira for fifty thousand and if you want two hundred thousand you bring forty thousand.”
The shortest added,
“DDD is a life turn-around. The bigger the money the bigger reward.”
Henry saw that as an opportunity to pay Prof’s money back. But he just had ten thousand naira on him. Where was he going to get the remaining cash? The thought of Shola popped up and she’d have been the best person to help out.
The tallest asked,
“And if you do this right now you could even get bonus. I’d suggest you bring forty thousand and get your two hundred thousand. Instead of gunning for the smallest, go for the biggest.”
They tried convincing him. Henry was sweating forty thousand was not easy to come by. After much thinking, he asked,
Henry: “If someone doesn’t have the cash can he give something valuable that is equivalent to the money.”
They turned to each other and the shortest asked,
“What would that be?”
Henry shook his head thinking. He looked at his phone. It was worth twenty five thousand naira. Shola had bought it for me. And it was still brand new.
Henry: “ My phone it is worth twenty five thousand naira and I haven’t used it more than a month. I can use it,” they collected the phone and nodded their heads,
Where was he to get five thousand? He then thought he could tell them to use the money they’d pay him with. He wanted to but it didn’t seem like a good idea. He remembered his friend Tope. He quickly used his phone to send Tope a text:
Bros,owfa, I need like five thousand naira. Something urgent came up.
Immediately the message delivered. And in time he got a five thousand naira bank alert from his friend.
He handed them the cash ten thousand naira as they kept hurrying him up. And he transferred five thousand naira to their account. And he handed them the phone. After driving them to different places. They handed him some notes of dollars that was supposed to be equivalent to twenty thousand. Henry drove away a happy man. Things were falling into places.
Dele folded sleeves, stood before First Lady who was seated on a chair with blistered lips. She was being tortured. Dele wasn’t the one beating her- a female detective did the torture while Dele questioned her. She was crying and yelling,
First Lady: “ I’ll make sure you pay for this! I want to talk to my lawyers! I’ll make every one of you pay!” the female detective slapped her and her mouth twitched to a corner. She was in tears.
Dele: “Threatening help us wouldn’t get you out here. This is a federal government case. Your husband was a top politicians. So talk!”
First Lady: “I want to talk to my lawyers right now!”
Dele: “Corporate madam!”
Frist Lady: “Nooo! Let me out of here!”she spat on Dele, who smiled and stepped away giving the lady the go ahead to torture First Lady. From outside where he lit his cigarette he could hear her crying and calling names. He smiled and whispered,
Dele: “The rich also cry!”he continued smoking.
Having finished the stick he was smoking, he entered and First Lady looked calmer. The lady had really beaten her. She looked battered,
Dele: “Are you ready to talk?” she nodded, “okay why did you kill your husband?
She nodded her head as blood trickled down her broken lips,
First Lady: “I swear I didn’t kill my husband. Why would I do that? Make myself a widow and my daughters fatherless!”
Dele: “Jealous! Jealous turns human to beast.”
She shook her head with tears,
First Lady: “I didn’t do it!” she said crying.
Dele: “You are not ready to tell the truth?”
First Lady: “I swear that is the truth.”
Dele: “What were you doing following your husband that night? Or did you not follow him?”
First lady nodded,
First Lady: “True, I followed him but my intention was to know the house of the girl he was cheating on me with then go the next day to either threaten or harass her bu..”
Dele: “But you ended killing him when she was in the bathroom so she would be seen as the culprit right?”he clapped, “Bravo,Mrs Felicia I must confess you are a master strategist,”
She dropped her head down crying,
First Lady: “I just spotted the house and went back home!”
Dele: “but I discovered that you got home 12: 30 ten minutes after his death. And from the house of his girl friend to your house is just ten minutes drive!”
She couldn’t mutter a word, she stared into the ceiling sighing.
Henry called Prof and assure him that he was going to bring his money on a Friday. A day before the expiry date. Prof received the news with excitement. His plan was to go Wuse market or Wuse 2 besides Glo Office and changed the dollars into naira notes by the Hausa men known as Aboki. On his way he said,
Henry: “Once I get the cash changed and I could add it to the business I get a higher reward,“ he gave out a loud laughter, “Man Henry, you are balling man! At least I could use the case to start up small business!” he laughed again, “Let me call Ibori and his friend to find out whatsup with the cash!”
He dialed their number and at one dial it went through and they picked the call. They told him to expect alert in the evening. He was excited as he drove the car with finesse blaring ears with good music. He whistled along the songs played.
The Abokis having collected the dollar, scrutinized it and handed it to one another and the last man shook his head. The first Aboki he handed the dollar too spoke Hausa to his friends and frowned and the one who could mutter some words in English even though it was in broken form said,
“Zee dollar is pake, wallahi!”
Henry: “Huh? What? This is from DDD professionals. They are worldly known and famous” the word sounded like fake to him but he didn’t want to believe it.
The man repeated,
“Zee dollar is pake!”
Henry quickly dialed the number of Ibori but it was switched off. He drove off hissing and cursing.
His mind went back to the threat of Prof after the assurance call that the money was going to be ready by the next day.
Questions: What should Henry do? Would Prof send the boys after him? Do you think First Lady was hard-hearted or saying the truth?
