episode 9

Chief Dotmann woke up around 10 am, he felt satisfied, the lady

who he slept with had left him in bed, he had met her in a night

club, from there they drove to his apartment in Lagos, he

remembered the instructions given to him by the native doctor, he

had chewed the green kolanut before sleeping with the woman,

now it was time for him to chew the red one, he pulled the drawer

beside his bed and brought out the red kolanut, he chewed it

immediately, now the process was complete, the woman’s spirit

would bring him more money, but she would die any moment after

24 hours, now he could do away with his range rover and buy

something better, he picked his phone to call Ijeoma, he hoped she

had completed the job, Ijeoma’s phone rang several times but no

one picked It, he prayed all was well, Ijeoma never wasted time

picking his calls, he stood up and went into the bathroom

………………………………………………… Nelson picked his phone up and tried

dialling Peter Adeboye’s number again, still it was switched off he

sat down on the couch and looked at John, suddenly an idea came

to his mind, why hadn’t he thought of it? He suddenly remembered

that he had helped Peter install a police tracker inside his car, he

still had the details of the tracker inside his laptop, he picked up

his phone and called the specialist who helps him install trackers

into police vehicles, within 15 minutes the man got to his house,

Nelson gave him the details and he didn’t use up to 5 minutes

before he located the car, it was about 12,000 metres away from

their current location, Nelson picked up his phone and called all

his men, they were going for a serious mission, John and his

friends offered to come, Nelson didn’t like the idea but he said they

could follow him under the condition that they were going to

remain in the car, they all agreed, Nelson’s men didn’t take long to

arrive, John and his friends entered the DPO’s car, they then set

out on their mission, Nelson’s phone rang and he picked it, one of

his men called to inform him that after further torture the suspect

had confessed that she was sent by chief Dotmann, Nelson

thanked his man for the good job and ended the call, he put two

and two together, now he knew why Chief Dotmann was absent,

that was a business for another day, right now they had to find his

friend ………………………………………………… Peter Adeboye was no more

lonely in the dungeon, his captives had brought in more people,

five more people to be precise, four men and one woman, the men

were also unclad and had their hair shaved, he was shy being

Unclad in front of strangers but he knew he would have to get used

to it ………………………………………… The tracking specialist whose name

was Promise was the one directing the police convoy, he was also

in Nelson’s car which was the car that led the way, he told the

driver to stop the car, he looked at his laptop and told the driver to

take the next turn on the right which he did, soon they were off the

tarred road, following the map on his laptop, he directed them

through different turns, John thought the road felt familiar, it felt

just like the road the kidnappers took them through, Joy and TJ

also said the same thing, they made this known to Nelson, Nelson

knew it had to be the kidnappers, Promise informed them that they

were 1500 metres away from the cars location, Nelson ordered his

driver to stop, now they had to continue on foot, Nelson went to

the back of his car and picked a bullet proof vest from the trunk, he

ordered his men to remember to wear their vest and make no

noise as they moved, he told John and his friends to remain in his

car no matter what happens, so Nelson and his 24 man squad

walked for about 1400 metres when Nelson spotted Peter’s car

parked in front of an uncompleted building, Bison’s building, he

split his men into three and ordered them to surround the building,

Nelson took one last look at his AK 47, they were going in hot

Kemi had finished preparing for work, her daughter Lisa was still

sleeping, Lisa had just come home from a party that she went to

the previous night, Kemi didn’t bother to disturb her, she picked

up her car key and went outside to her car, she started the

engine and set off for work, she remembered her husband, she

picked up her phone and dialled his number, it was switched off,

she hissed, why was she even bothering herself, she got to the

traffic light, it was already on red so she stopped, she

remembered her sweet experience in the hands of chief, she

smiled to herself, soon all chief’s wealth would be hers, all she

needed was 24 hours, before the balm that baba gave her would

take effect, she had rubbed the balm on her laps before going to

the club, baba had instructed her that any man she slept with

after she had rubbed the balm on her laps would be under her

control, the traffic light went from red to yellow and finally green,

she drove off and continued her journey to the office

……………………………… John, Joy, TJ and Promise sat in the car,

alongside Nelson’s driver, John was deep in thought, he hoped

his father would be found, alive, and with all his body parts

complete, Joy kissed him on the cheeks and told him all would

be fine, John looked at Joy, if he was in the mood he would have

kissed her small inviting pink lips, but he was not in the mood, all

he could think of now was how his father was going to be

rescued ………………………… Peter was half asleep when the dungeon

door was opened, two men came inside and released him from

his chains, they then pulled him up and dragged him out of the

dungeon, they then locked the dungeon door back, they forced

him through a long dark corridor and they turned left, Peter knew

there was trouble immediately, a left turn was not a good sign,

was this how his life was going to end? Bison stood in the

slaughter room waiting impatiently, they should have brought the

man here already, he didn’t know what was taking them long

………… Nelson took a deep breath, it had been quite a while that

he had been on a mission, in fact he shouldn’t be here, but he

was here because his friends life was in danger and whoever was

responsible was going to pay dearly, on a normal mission, his

men would have handled it alone, but this was no ordinary

mission, these kidnappers had threatened his Job and his

friend’s life, using his radio he told the other two groups to

attack on his count, 3, 2, 1 the three groups attacked at once

…………………………………… Bison took a machete from a corner, he

was going to behead this one himself, two men held Peter’s

hands and legs and placed his head on a flat rock, Peter tried to

struggle but he could not free himself, he said his last prayers,

Bison raised his machete ready to behead the man before him

…………………… the people in the dungeon heard a cry of pain from

an area of the building, they now knew why they were kidnapped..
