I stared at my phone with disbelief, this can’t be true, what will jaga be doing in the police station on a Sunday. I wished i had airtime to call back but i didn’t.
Without wasting much time, i stood up and put on my clothes, i have to help jaga, if he is locked up, dat means he will be on bail so i have to take some cash along.
No one goes to a police station with full pockets and comes out without spending a dime, i trust our Nigerian police officers
After leaving home, i quickly headed straight to the bank to make a withdrawal. Few minutes later, i was already on my way heading to the location which was very far from where i live but happens to be the only police station close by where jaga resides.
On reaching there, i entered the police station and I saw jaga and two of his friends at the entrance.
Jaga, i shouted with a surprise look on my face.
I was thinking he was locked up, but seeing him here made me more a curious.
Jaga: Daniel thank God say you don come.
Daniel: Jaga na wetin dey happen?
Jaga: I was robbed last night
Daniel: robbed? How manage na
Jaga: i didn’t even know how it happened, it was at gunpoint, they were about six in numbers.
Daniel: na wetin dem come do?
Jaga: which kind question be dat one, na wetin dem dey do before, no be to steal.
Daniel: so what did they steal.
Jaga: they went away with my laptop, phones and some amount of money which i had kept at home. I just got a report this morning telling me that the robbers had been caught and all stolen goods has been retrieved from them.
Daniel: since you are here, why haven’t you collected yours?
Jaga: i have already gone, i spoke with the officer in charge but he said that before I can take it, I will have to deposit the sum of twenty thousand naira.
Daniel: 20k, for wetin na
Jaga: the tin surprise me sef, right now am on having 12k which was contributed by my friends here, that was why i sent for you.
Daniel: good thing I came with cash.
I brought out the money and added eight thousand naira to it, which made the money complete.
Jaga: thank you ma guy, u do well.
I and his friends waited outside while he went in to make the payment for his stolen goods, so i used the opportunity in doing some introduction with his friends.
Few minutes later, he came out with a wide grin on his face, carrying along with him his phones and window 8 laptop.
You guys are the best, i really appreciate all your efforts.
We talked for a while and bid each other farewell before we parted ways, leaving only jaga and i.
Jaga: i have some repairs to do.
Daniel: did the laptop got spoilt?
Jaga: no, not the laptop. It is my door, it was broken by those robbers.
Daniel: really, no be small tin oh, dat means you will have to fix it today.
Jaga: exactly, but do you know any carpenter i can call now?
Daniel: i think so.
I brought out my phone and called a carpenter which I was familiar with and he promised to come on time after given him the address.
he is on his way I told jaga.
Jaga: thats better, let him come and fix it up before night falls.
We continued to gist about the robbery incident which I couldn’t help but laugh when he told me he was flogged on the butt0ckz for harassing one of them, after which he left and I took a bike home.
