Written by Austin Blinks… If you missed part Thirty Five, read it HERE!!!
Michael sat in the house that used to be occupied by both he and his late brother ,Solo. He still couldn’t believe he is dead. He has got himself mixed up with the wrong people and now he’s dead cold in.the city mortuary.
He has done exactly had Solo had told him. He gave Documents and Audio recordings of his brother’s dealings and conversation wit the Madam who had him tried to kill Dolapo!
Only God knows where Solo Got all his money from but as at the time of his death, he had nothing less than 4 million nairas in 5 different bank accounts, leaving Michael as a beneficiary to all. The money scares Michael, his brother has saved up to 60,000 US dollars dealing drugs and hurting people.
A knock came on the door, it startled Michael. He wasn’t expecting anyone. He fidgeted in his chair and raise his palms to cover his ears, hoping the person would leave but he/she didn’t, the knocks got even louder and continuous with a bang! When Michael finally got the courage to open up, there was a very big guy standing at the door, with eyes almost as red as fire itself and he stood like a mountain, looking down at Micheal. One arm of his is bigger than Michael’s thigh. Michael swallowed hard.
Michael: good afternoon sir!
Man: I’m Capo! Friend of your late brother. I have a question. Is it true Solo was murdered by a policeman and that madam that he used to worked for ordered it?
His throats felt dry and he hardly could speak so he just stood there, nodding.his head Yes. He was too terrified of this Goliath -looking guy.
Capo nodded and muttered under his breath.
Capo: She must pay for this! She can’t just kill my friend and get away with it.
He said that in anger, grunts and roared like a lion, he looked down at Michael, wanted to say something but changed his mind so he turned his back and began stumbling down the stairs, with each steps threatening the building’s foundation. But One thing’s for sure…. that’s a big angry man on a revenge mission! Michael decided he needed a new apartment!
Mrs. Chioma Adeleke sat in her cell, fuming in anger but keeping silent. 4 other young ladies who were obviously night workers shared the cell with her. One of them was very loud about her opinions.
LovePeddler: Oga officer come o! Wetin dey do you now! Abeg release peson jor
Policeman: Will you shut up there, you this Ashewo woman!
LovePeddler: Talk better jare! I know sey na this thing you want (She pointed to her breasts ) You better come take am now o….make we enter toilet do something fast, i kuku sabi sey you no fit last long.
Her other prostitutes joined in the laughter.
Policeman: Idiots! I’m a policeman! I serve with integrity!!
LovePeddler: haaaa…. How you know sey my name na “Integrity “…… Oya come serve with me naaaaa!
The officer gave up! He took a sheet in front of him and called out…
Policeman: Mrs. Chioma Adeleke! You’re are needed.
He led chioma out the room, taking her towards the interrogation room….
LovePeddler: Na old mama you like shey…No integrity in that Mr. Policeman
Chioma ignored the comment and walked into the interrogation room. In there already, was cop1 going through the files handed to him by Michael
Chioma: You bastard! I will make sure you rot in jail.
Cop2: Bite your tongue woman! I’m not the one being charged here, you’re the one to be jailed .
Chioma! : Oh really?! You thing i will go to jail? Then you are as naive as a child. People like me are above the law in this country, we don’t go to jail.
Cop2: No one is above the law!!
Chioma: I am the law!!
Cop2: Woman! You tried killing your stepson and you’re not even remorseful about it.
Chioma: Remorseful?? No!!! All i feel is regrets….. regreting i haven’t killed that bastard earlier.
Cop2: what could a 20 year boy do to you, to deserve this much hatred ??
Chioma: He did everything wrong by being born! I love Olatunji in school but his mind was always on a stupid village girl. I was seeing other Men but he was special. He’s a responsible man and that made it easy to have him take responsibilities for my pregnancy.
Cop2: My guess is, that pregnancy wasn’t his… you held him down with a pregnancy that wasn’t his.
Chioma: Well…. you have a little brain! If the words gets out and he discovers Segun isn’t really his, then he’ll divert all his attention on that bastard Dolapo boy! Can’t let that happen .. I never knew about the bastard until he was almost 2 years old, i tried to take care of it all.
Cop2: What did you do?
Chioma: My sources told me the whole family, Mary, her husband and their bastard son were going on a family Vacation so i had someone tamper with their car. But the information i got was wrong. Only the husband travelled….. well you know how our roads are here, he had an accident.
Cop2: (shocked) what???!!!! You killed Dolapo’s Dad too!!!
Chioma: He died in an accident!!
Cop2: After you had his car tampered with!!
Chioma: How am i supposed to know he’ll be the only one in the car???
Cop2: You deserve to be sent to the worst prison ever!! How about Solo?
Chioma: That incompetent idiot! He had to be silenced too…… Anyways, what is your name Mr. Cop? Tell me your name so i can tell your superiors to have you discharged, you have mess with me and i will make sure you lose this job you love so much.
Before he could say another word, the door flung open and an officer came in, whispered into his ears and left just quickly as he came.
Cop2 banged his fists on the table in anger, sweat running down his temple. He drew a long and deep breath before he finally spoke.
Cop2: I’ve been told you’re to be released immediately…. all charges are to be dropped..
Mrs. Chioma Adeleke; got up with a smile on her face. She dusted her dress and looked at him….
Chioma: I told you….. people like me, don’t go to jail. We’re the law!
And just after about an hour of being arrested, Chioma walked out of the police headquarters, all charges against her dropped, a police vehicle had been assigned to take her back home with an apology letter for every inconveniences caused.
