Tunde was very scared, he doesn’t know what to do because capon was still holding on to him, using him as shield  for himself. As the fight between the two cult groups continued capon kept shifting towards the main gate of the building, tunde felt the fear in his voice too as he ordered his boys to keep fighting , he kept moving towards the gate while he used tunde as shield.  

Suddenly tunde heard a sharp cry from capon who was holding him tight on the neck, as capon continued whining, he felt a slight loose in his grip so he decided to take the chance to free himself , on turning back to get a view of what was happening , he saw capon trying to remove a knife that was cut into his collar bone, tunde was confused at the same time irritated by the site of the blood gushing out of the knife wound , he didn’t know if he should help him remove the knife or just leave him and run away.

As he was still contemplating what to do , he saw a fiercely looking man he believe should be a member of the scorpions , the man looked at capon as he tried to remove the knife ,he went on his knees and helped him get the knife out of his collar bone, then he looked up at tunde and made a run towards him with a knife, tunde began to run, the man didn’t stop as he continued chasing him down , at first tunde contemplated waiting for the man , he knew he couldn’t run too far before the man catch  up with him but he still tries to run , after few steps , the man stroke him with the knife.  Before tunde could look at where the knife had cut him ,the fiercely looking man punched a blow to his face and before he knew what was happening , he was on the floor crying in pain, the man mounted him ,pulled out the knife again, and tried to stab him in the chest , but  to his surprise the he suddenly stopped   as he was about to bring down the knife on him, few seconds later he saw drops of blood  from the man’s head ,someone had struck him from behind  but he didn’t know who it was, the man fell heavily on him ,hitting tunde’s  head hard on the floor, tunde cried in pain and tried pushing the body away from him but he was weak  because of the blood he has wasted, as he struggles to get the man off him, he noticed  that someone was helping him as well, as the person lifted the dead body from his head, the person he saw surprised him.

Standing over the dead body was the young man that gave him water during his lock up, tunde was confused, “is he trying to help him? or he is taking orders from capon or anyone in control at that time?” , the young man stretched his hand to him , tunde grabbed it and whine as he tries to get up, he wasn’t fully on his feet when he noticed the sudden stiffness of the young man’s hand , his hand was cold and it wasn’t moving anymore, he wasn’t trying to pull him up anymore, tunde fell back on his back and then he looked up and realized what has happened ,the young man had been struck in the head by another man, he watched in horror as the young man fell to the ground with his face, tunde was scared he has never held the hand of a dyeing person before, but his problem continued when he realized that the man who struck the young man was about to  strike him to death too, he tried moving but his body was heavy due to weakness, the man raised his cutlass but to his surprise again someone had come to his rescue .
