The mysterious twenty thousand naira season 2
Author: Akhigbe Godsgift
A short story
Mysteriously twenty thousand naira mistakenly entered my bank account, I didn’t know who send it but I needed money badly, so without even waiting to know who send it I use the money to flex my girlfriend birthday, I spent all the money and still lose my girlfriend, it didn’t go well it looks like a curse, and after losing my girlfriend some mysterious person called me telling me that his name is most rugged, that he is from warri that I should transfer to 20k to him before tomorrow or else he will come to aba to get me, now where will I get the money from?
Lecturer: some of you are just here to waste your parents money, you come and start behaving like idiots, with nothing in your head, come to class you will not come and even if you manage to come you will still come late, do assignment you will not do and when a lecturer give your carry over now you will start cursing the lecturer as if he should cut his head and use it to replace your mark, you all are not suppose to be here you all should bury yourselves in shame.
That was Mr Uche, our lecture insulting us because none of us got his assignment currently, he likes to insult slot and one day he will find what he is looking for, anyway am not interested in his gibberish, my mind is not even in his class as I ponder what happened to faith and glory, the two girls close to me in school I just lost them like that, how can I be so stupid, and what am I going to do to the man that called me and called himself most rugged, I don’t think he can find me here in aba he is just making mouth I think, but how did he get my number? Maybe he took it from the bank, and there’s no money in my bank again they would have deduct me and transfer his money to him, I don’t need to worry he can’t find me here, so I thought.
After class I look around searching for glory to at least apologize again for action that night, I went to her department and was told that she didn’t come to school, I know it’s because of what happened that she refuse to come to school, what do I do now? I walk to relaxation joint and sat under one canopy tree.
One of my course mate “Frank” saw me and then walk to me.
Frank: oh boy wetin happen na why you they sad like this?
Me: oh boy I don fvck up oh big time.
Frank: wetin happen, you suppose they happy na, no be everybody they get money celebrate their girlfriend birthday.
Me: oh boy the way the money take enter my account self I no know, the money come cause more wahala than happiness, Glory caught me doing some things with faith, now am dead because both of them are avoiding me.
Frank: chai why you come fvck up like that na, Na drink go cause am.
Me: that one no be the gbege self, the thing be say the person wet mistakenly send the money to my account na warri guy, and he called me three days ago say if I no send the money to him within 24 hours him they come aba come kpai me.
Frank: oh boy yawa they oh, how you go do, by the way how the guy take know you?
Me: I no know oh, maybe he got my details from the bank.
Frank: bank no they give out details like that my guy, or maybe he got your information from Facebook.

Frank: I hope you no put the name of your school for your profile.
Me: oh boy I put am oh, I even put my department join.
Frank: Jesus, quick change am now now.

I quickly brought out my phone and change my Facebook settings sharperly.
Me: guy e be like say I go they sleep for your house for now until everything die down.
Frank: no shaking, you Na my guy na, nothing they happen no fear.
Me: thank you, make I rush go house go carry some of my things, I go come your house in the night,.
Frank: no wahala bro, take care.
We parted ways, I was a little bit scared, I thought I change my Facebook settings to allow nobody see my information I didn’t know it was still visible, I just hope the guy have not seen all my information or else am dead already, I took my things are started walking home, I came out from the school gate, I look left and right first before following the way that lead to my house, the time is 5pm on Monday.
I enter umuojima road and started walking to MCC road, I wanted to enter keke but there was no transport with me, I haven’t gone far when I look back and saw someone coming from my back some metres away walking like a soldier, he was moving very fast as if he is coming to meet me, there’s a police station in that umuojima road, I walk there and stop in front of the police station, the person walk pass me, now everybody is a suspect.
I got home and arrange my things, I waited for night and around seven I gathered my things and ready to move,
“Oz somebody they look for you him say him be your brother from edo, the person they outside they come” one of my neighbor passing told me.
I quickly took my things and follow backyard, I pass my landlords backyard and hide, from that the back I watch as one of my other neighbour bring the person to my room, I dont know the person and he took a backpack, who is he? I don’t know.
Neighbor: him they house just now, where him come go?
My neighbor ask no one in particular.
Neighbor: wait let me call him.
I quickly silent my phone, climb the fence and jump from my compound, I pass the back and came out from MCC road, I took keke and and run to my coursemate.
