Chapter 17

Bayo: first I want to apologise. Secondly you must
understand that I had no choice.
Me: Just go on.
Bayo: you were hit on purpose. You were running
away from some people chasing you. They caught
up with you in Festac, and hit your car from
behind. You have something that doesn’t belong to
you. You were in a place you werent suppose to
be. nobody knew how you got there but you were
there and you stole something.
What you stole was also stolen from someone
prior to you. Alhaji, my boss works for people
interested in what you stole. After the crash, You
car was searched…nothing was found. Its still a
puzzle. Leaving you in the hospital was too risky,
especially as it was clear you were impaired.
Me: how re you involved?
Bayo: Alhaji was told to hold on to you till you
woke up and say where you kept it. So he told me
and Shade to hold on to you.
Me: kept what?
Bayo: I dont knw…
Me: and after I remember?
Bayo: make we no think negative.
Me: will you be the one to kill me?
Bayo: I cant kill you
Me: who are the others after me?
Bayo: they are Lebanese. They are after you and
Alhaji’s people.
Me: so what happens next?
Bayo: you cant tell anybody what I just said. The
moment they find out..I am dead.
The phone in my pocket rang..
Cynthia: Mr X guess what?
Me: what dear?
Cynthia: I was fired just now…no explanation
Me: wow…I am sorry, can I come and see you?.I
am so sorry.
Cynthia: haven’t you done enough, is it until I am
killed? Please I dont want to see you ever again!
Me: I am so sorry…if there is any….

Me: Cynthia. .the nurse…she has been fired.
Bayo: I reported that you slept in her house last
night. Shortly after you called…
Me: You are a bastard you know?
Bayo: yes…I indeed am..
My right hand struck the his right eye brow before
he could blink.the punch was so hard I felt my
knuckles hurt. I expected a retaliation or
