******MEETING WITH AN OLD ENEMY******
**CNN**I wake as early as 5am in the morning, which took my cousin (Ade) suprise because its unlike of me, I used to wake up at 7am before but today I wake at 5am, I reached for kettle as I performed ablution and went to mosque to pray, though I couldn’t remember the last time I prayed, what makes me pray today? Maybe because am to meet with my inlaw today? I went to Wuse market the previous day to get a nice wear which I would put on today, I had also discussed everything with Ade the previous day, he just adviced me to becarful with the outing.
After the prayer I took my bath, put on the outfit I got from wuse market and I headed to the sitting room waiting for the arrival of 10:30am. Few hours later Ade was ready for work, he dropped some money for me before he went to his working place , I sat in the sitting room watching Tv, but my mind wasn’t on the programme they are showing on AIT (Kakaki) I decided on what next to do since I wasn’t interested in the programme, so I took my phone and called my one and only Tola.
****** TOLA ******
I wake up as earlier than I used to, just because my man is coming over to see my family today, I quickly did all the house choir even before big mum was awake, I settled for Tv programme in the sitting room immediately after I finished the house choir the programme going on on AIT was Kakaki Africa, I love the programme because the anchor of the programme (Adaora) is someone I like most, I barely followed the programme when my phone suddenly interrupted me, looking at the screen of my phone put beautiful ever smile on my face, without knowing I’m still going to cry at the end of the day .
Tola: Hello love, you awake? .
Cnn: About 2hrs ago, my dear I couldn’t sleep I don’t know how today wanna be .
Tola: Today is gonna be fine, I couldn’t sleep too can’t wait to have you here .
Cnn: same with me here, but why Big mum said she wanna see just me? At least she should have let someone come along with me .
Tola: Once you’re not coming for introduction what did you need companions for? .
Cnn: Don’t you think I alone will be feeling shy? .
Tola: You are a man and you have to act like one .
Cnn: I’ll not disappoint you dear .
Tola: Better and please put on a nice cloth and ware a nice perfume, I want you to impress my mummy .
Cnn: Trust your guy nah, you won’t believe I went to Wuse market yesterday to got all what I’ll be needed .

Big Mum: ***She counted ten thousand naira and gave it to me*** Go to market and buy all what you will be needed to welcome him and also prepare his meal, you know his favourite mean nah??? (she joked) .
Tola: ***Collected the money and went on my kneel*** Thank you so much mum, I love you, you make me totally feel at home, I don’t regrets ever living with you .
Big Mum: ***Her words melt her mind, she felt like calling her brother to cancelled everything with him but it was a bit late because the old man was in the city already, she would know how to talk to him to take it easy with the boy after his arrest***
Tola: I said I love you mummy, are you not happy with me or you’re thinking something else? .
Big Mum: Oh! I love you so much dear, you know you’re my Daughter and very soon I will send you out of the country, you’ll be living with Dele in UK .
Tola: Wow thank you mum, you’re the best mum in the world .
Big Mum: Go to the market on time and prepare his food .
Tola: Ok mum, am going to Karmo market ma (Karmo market is one of the most popular local market in Abuja, there is nothing they aren’t selling there, though Wuse market is the most populous market in the city) I’ll be back shortly .
Big Mum: Ok dear .
Tola: ***I went out and headed to karmo market to get myself all what I would be needed*** .

****** NIKE ******
I was lying back on the bed in the next morning, seriously the journey from Osun to Abuja isn’t a joke, the journey was just too long, imagine sitting in a car for almost 9hours Abuja is kinda far. To say the fact Abuja is the most beautiful city I’ve ever being to, though I haven’t opportuned to visit other cities such as Lagos,Ph,kaduna,Kano and calabar. I was busy with my thought when I heard a slightly knocked on my door “Come in” walked in was my daddy .
D.P.O: Morning dear .
Nike: ***Sat up to greet my daddy*** Morning sir .
D.P.O: How was your night? .
Nike: Fine sir .
D.P.O: Hope you’re not too weak in result of yesterday journey? .
Nike: Somehow weak sir! .
D.P.O: maybe because it is your first time to travel far .
Nike: I think so, wait dad I thought you said we are here to visit my sister, I haven’t seen her since yesterday? .
D.P.O: Yes ofcourse, because she is not leaving here, she leaves with my sister and here is not my sister’s house .
Nike: When are we going to her house? And I also want to see the beautiful city of Abuja, I was impressed with little I saw yesterday .
D.P.O: we are going there by 10 this morning, get yourself ready .
Nike: And you’ll take me to most of places in Abuja o .
D.P.O: Shhh we are here not for the tour, you will see all what you wanted to see on our way to my sister’s house .
Nike: Hmmmm dad (We are on our conversation when the house maid knocked on the door, she came to announced to us that brake fast is ready.)

Meanwhile Tola just returned from market she was in kitchen preparing her Man’s meal, Big Mum had told her when she came back from market that she should make the food much more plenty because some of her friends would visit later in the day, but what Tola failed to realized was the friends Big Mum is referring to wasn’t her main friends but her brother which is her (Tola’s) father.
She prepared semo and egusi soup with goat meat, after the cooking she retired to the sitting room and waiting for the arrival of 10am and her man.
******BACK TO CNN******
He just took his bath, he put on the cloth he selected for the day, wore a nice perfume (Smart 305) he murmured some prayers before he went out, at the front of his house he took his phone and sent a text across Pesman
“Dear friend am on my way to Tola’s house, please keep praying for me” Few secons later he received a message from Pesman saying
“Ore I gat your back, nothing is going to happen just becareful there”.
He stopped the coming keke napep and hoped in, in the next 10min he would be in Big Mummy’s house in Jabi only if the traffic light dosn’t delayed him.
****** D.P.O IBRAHIM ******
Time is 10am Nike and I are inside my car heading to Life camp area of Abuja, probably we are going to my sister’s house in Jabi, my motive behind this was to arrest the stupid boy that almost took living out of my Daughter some months back in Osun, firstly I could not arrest the boy alone, so I will firstly branch at Life camp police station to request for at least two police officers who will make the arrest a successful one, I was busy with my thought when Nike suddenly spoke out. .
Nike: Wow daddy Abuja is just too beautiful .
D.P.O: Yes and don’t forget we are in Federal Capital Territory so it has to be beauties even more than this .
Nike: Yes dad and this round about is the most biggest roundabout I’ve ever seen (Referring to Kado roundabout, honestly the roundabout is one of the most biggest in Africa, it so big that you cannot run round it once without resting thrice before you could complete the circle, it links to Life camp,Gwarimpa,Jabi,Wuse,Kado estate,Kado,Airport junction and Karmo, with almost 500 lanes) .
D.P.O: Yes this roundabout is one of the most biggest in Africa, don’t you see people are playing football inside it? .
Nike: Yes dad even there is a basket court there and lot of beautiful trees, one can easily get lost here o .
D.P.O: Yes you’re right, one can lost especial if you don’t know your way ***I took left turn as I faced Life camp police station, I reached the station and parked the car***My dear wait for me I want to see D.P.O of this station .
Nike: Don’t stay too long sir .
D.P.O: Alright (I walked into station and asked of the D.P.O which I was directed to after I shown my I.D card and also introduced myself as a D.P.O in one station because I’m not on uniform, I explained all what I came for to the D.P.O and my request was granted) .
Nike: Seated in the car was myself D.P.O Ibrahim, and the officers that assigned to him, this made me feel uncomfortable but I kept it with myself and concluded to ask my father about the other two police officers later. .
D.P.O: I brought the car engine back to live and headed out of the station, I joined the Kado roundabout again as if I was heading back Gwarimpa where I was coming before, I took another right turn as my car faced Jabi lake. suddenly I felt stomach pain after 10min of driving, before I knew it my vision became blurry, I couldn’t see anything clearly again, before the two police officers at the back could figured out that something is happening have lost control, this made my car hit another moving car, Nike shouted ontop of her voice as my car shifted from main road and hit street light where lot of cars were parked at Sport center Jabi lake,this made my car Somersault three times as I hit my chest on the steering so hard because I wasn’t on seat belt, I hit my chest very hard on the steering that I began to see my late father who was slept in lord in the year 2002 as I became unconscious. .
