He walked fast, trying to evade the piercing darkness that was midnight. He had been with the DPO of Moro all evening, listening as the man explained times without number why Kareem won’t be released or freed. Kareem, known as Lightening, was the most feared cultist in OAU campus. A seasoned killer, his various accomplishments included the murder of the electoral chairman of Osun state or rather The State of Osun and the governorship candidate for NCP in Osun State. The Candidate, Chief Omisore, was known to be a seasoned and no-nonesense accountant who decided to get his hands dirty in Osun state politics. The Ruling Party, RSF, knew that he would win in a landslide victory and employed the cheapest, yet most reliable person to kill him; Kareem. His death caused an outrage in the whole of Osun State, which had led to his arrest. To capture him was tough though, Andrew had to personally take him captive, after he took care of the ‘babalawo in charge of him, use some brave police officers to attack his hideout or better put ‘fortress’ and then beat him in physical combat. That’s why he needed those assurances.
