Its been four days I’ve been trying Kingsley’s number without reach, I’m damn so worried; ever since the news report, his line had been unreachable, “hope he hasn’t been captured? Or is he dead?”.
I kept asking myself, taking the cup of coffee prepared by one of the maid, which was already getting cold.
Kingsley had occupied my mind for days, I wonder why the thought of a criminal could occupied me so much despite knowing how dangerous it could be, reflecting somewhat negatively on paying attention to others. I could recall a day my dad introduced my step mother to me, I didn’t flip as I stared at the television, undoubtedly I knew the woman must be thinking I didn’t like her but somehow won’t know I was lost in thought, I wonder where my dad met such a beautiful woman like that, I smiled remembering she almost knee down to apologies if she has done anything wrong that day.
I finish the coffee in no time, stands and return into the bedroom, need to prepare for work today, its been days without going, even though love could be powerful and compelling, I need to discuss with someone, probably Sarah.
My mood changed a bit, remembering I’ll be going to the states soon.
“sir, the minister name is Nosol Adams, he has four children, three are studying abroad while one lives with him and his wife here in Nigeria. He frequent 21 race house every weekend and”
“what !! 21 race?”
“ yes sir, he moves out of the mansion he lives at 7:30pm every Friday with only one escort guard and return back on Saturdays by 9:00pm, he has one private residence at Abuja and”.
Agent Gabriel phone began to ring, interrupting the junior agent who was speaking. he brought out the ringing phone from his pocket and answered the call on the first ring.
“where are you agent” The caller asked,
“at the office sir” ,
“meet me in my office right away”, the caller added.
“ alright sir, will be there in a minutes, he replied…
“I will need you to visit 21 race soon, make more findings on each child of the minister and I want you to file out a court case file, I will be back to tell you details, am going to meet the chairman now” he added while the junior agent only nodded.
Two minutes later….
A soft knock sounded on the door, “Come in”, the chairman said before the agent opened the door. He entered and close it gently behind him, two men were in the office, the chairman was seated beside the window while the other man opposite him, he greeted the men politely before taking his seat while they answered politely too.
“Agent, this is the inspector general of police” he said, stretching his left hand.
“ I must say am very please with your achievement and for bringing down a terrorist gang in this country down, its so amazing you did what the police couldn’t achieve all this while” the IG said instantly after shaking hands with the agent.
“thanks for the compliment sir, its my job and am still trying to get them fully down”
The IG raised his eyebrow, “ fully down? but you’ve got them, is there anything amiss?”
“yes sir, some of them escaped, more so, we need to find if they are been sponsored” the agent replied.
“ sponsored, you mean they are been sponsored?”
“Exactly sir, with the type of equipment found there and their type of guns signify they must have a strong backup, those guns couldn’t have been snuggled in easily” the agent replied.
“that’s true, but who do you think their sponsorer could be? All of them should be put to justice, their illegal act is too alarming, I want justice, they killed my lovely daughter years back”. the I.G said, trying to faint a cry.
even though he killed his own daughter himself, he had to shoot her when she discovered about his involvement in illegal deals and the rape on the opposition party chairman’s wife, he was also assigned to kill the husband too. he had to kill his daughter when he discovered her plans to reveal it out to the world and framed they were attacked by some gunmen and his daughter was killed during the attack to the general public even though the shooting happens in his compound.
“I don’t know who their sponsors could be, but I know they will surely be put to Justice soon enough, I’ll also be going to interrogate the arrested ones”
“oh ! about that agent, they’ve been transferred to the headquarters for questioning” the chairman said.
“ headquarters !! why? I wasn’t informed” the agent asked with a frown.
“ don’t worry about that agent, you can visit the headquarters too to interrogate them but now as you’ve said, concentrate on how to cop down their sponsorer”
“don’t worry agent, I believe they will be tortured at the headquarters, and details will be sent to you, nice to meet you once again” the IG added.
“ I will also want you to keep me informed on your findings”.
Kingsley sat on one of the sofas at his private residence watching the just concluded news, he had bandages over his shoulder and left leg, he knew he barely escape death or been captured, he never thought G.B could be fast with his plans, though he had taken proper measures to counter it, he never knew it will be so quick.
He sighed as he remembered Jane, he didn’t wish to put a call to her, he wonder how their hideout was attacked like that, maybe she sold him out, only her knows about his involvement in the gang. He wasn’t followed when he left the hotel they were, he would definitely know if he was ever followed. Maybe Jane put a tracker on him, he wonder how stupid he was by trusting her and telling her some details about himself, he thought of many possibilities.
He grabbed the phone placed beside him and switched it on , he had switched it off days back to secure the line and make it untraceable, taking every measures to protect himself, he sighs and strolled his contact when the phone finally boot. He select one of the contact displayed as Boss and dialed it.
“where have you been?” Don voice sounded instantly with no greetings.
“ good afternoon boss”, Kingsley greeted, instead of answering.
“ I left the hideout under your command, you betrayed your family, you attack your brothers, oh !! You thought I wouldn’t know? How much were you given for this? We gave you life, I gave you hope but guess I was wrong… be ready for me”. Don said and the call ends.
Kingsley was stunned and confused, he raised his brow and glance at the phone if he hadn’t call G.B instead of Don, wondering what Don just said within seconds, he tried to call again.
Don was seated with one of the brother he had called earlier, both working on their laptops, “location not found boss, he had secure the line”
“try again, he’s calling back”.
“You have nothing to say for your act of betrayer, you know I don’t joke with my words” Don said after he received the call.
“boss I don’t understand what’s you’re”
“ be ready for the consequence, I trusted you Kingsley, showed you some secret of the brotherhood, you going to pay for this I swear”. He said and end the call again.
To be continued…..
