It was a sunday morning. I couldn’t sleep over night, I was staring at the ceiling and the wall hoping that some miracles could happen. The two hefty guys who were in the room with me were awake. They walked out of the room and one other guy came inside to stay with me. Few moments later, their leader came inside and told the other guy inside the room to excuse him. When we were alone in the room. He came closer and talked to me in a slow voice.
LEADER: mr delivery guy, you see!!, we don’t have any problem with you, infact, we are releasing you today to go home in peace if only you are ready to cooperate with me.
ME: **nooding in fear***, I’m ready to cooperate sir, I’m ready to do anything sir. I want to go home sir
LEADER: are you sure?
ME: yes sir
LEADER: ok, firstly, what was between you and labake?
ME: ***scared with face down*** nothing sir.
LEADER: common my friend, remember you promised to cooperate with me.
ME: yes sir
LEaDER: so tell me
ME: we were friends back in school sir
LEADER: she was your friend or your girlfriend?
LEADER: **patted me on the back***, I understand. So what did she tell you about us
ME: nothing sir
LEADER: my friend, don’t let me brutal with you. Will you cooperate or I use the violence way?
ME: I swear to God, she didn’t say anything sir
LEaDeR: so what were you people discussing at the hotel?.
ME: nothing sir, she only wanted to know about the parcel.
LEADER: and what did u tell her about it?
ME: same thing I told you sir. I told her its in the office.
LEADER: is that all?.
ME: ***face down*** yes sir, that’s everything
LEADER: who else was in alliance with labake among the guys you saw in this house?
ME: no one sir
LEADER: you aren’t saying the truth. Labake alone can’t take this bold step. Someone must be on her side to give her hope and courage.
ME: I swear sir, she was alone, no one else.
LEaDER: are you sure?
ME: yes sir
LEADER: ok, this Mr femi guy, what is the relationship between you and him?
ME: just delivery service sir.
LEADER: as in?
ME: he used to be our client. I’m new in the delivery job and I was sent to confirm his address if he still uses same residential address.
LEADER: ok, what had been your conversations?
ME: nothing sir, he only calls to inform me that he would let me know when to deliver his parcel to him.
LEADER: apart from his house, where else can he be found?
ME: I don’t know it sir.
ME: alright sir, please when will you release me sir? ***looking frightened***
LEADER: ***smiled*** after you performed this last task.
ME: which task sir?
LEADER: you would lead us to capture mr femi. Dats all.
ME: ok sir, how do I do that?
LEADER: **patted me***when its time, I would tell you.
He walked out of the room and called on a guy to get breakfast for me. I heard two guys telling the leader that they were going out to find out more about labake’s corpse.
