The deciding Moment : BIRTH OF A GANG
Vengeance taken will often tear the heart and torment the conscience -Arthur Schopenhauer
[Mike’s Point Of View]
I went back and told Nixon, Tife and Theodore that Cassandra had disappeared. They all shouted,
Immediately, we organised ourselves and began looking for her. We combed every nook and cranny of the area but Cassandra wasn’t in any of the hideout. It was as if she had never existed.
Soon the evening sky gave way to darkness. The night flapped its wings and dropped darkness on the surface of the Earth.
After gropping in the darkness for so long, we retired into our van. I blamed myself for not following her. God!!! I just want to respect her privacy but the truth is, we have shared that privacy a few months ago in the luxury of her own apartment.
We slept in the car and resumed our search the next day but still no result.
–Five days later —
We decided to abandon the search on the fifth day after searching the nearby residential areas but still couldn’t find her. We concluded that since we didn’t find her body, it means she’s still alive.
I remembered I have not read the message sent to me by Gina. “Gooshh” I checked the message
It reads ;
“MIKE , I AM VERY SORRY FOR BETRAYING YOUR GIRLFRIEND CASSANDRA. I CANNOT LIVE TO SEE YOUR FACE AGAIN SO I DECIDED TO END IT ALL. AS A COMPENSATION FOR YOUR SUFFERING, I HAVE DECIDED TO GIVE YOU ALL THE MONEY I WAS GIVEN FOR BETRAYING CASSANDRA. THE SUM OF $ 2000.
IF YOU EVER SEE HER, TAKE CARE OF HER.
SEE YOU ONE-DAY IN THE AFTERLIFE.
” Oh, No.Gina, I have forgiven you. Don’t kill yourself.”I gave the phone to Tife to also read the message. He was shocked. Tife was able to track Gina’s location. He said he put a micro tracker in Gina’s body when she was sleeping in his car because he didn’t trust her.
He said he insisted she should be in his house because he wanted to remove the tracker from her before she leaves but she insisted on leaving. So the tracker was still in her body and it would be useful to track her location then.
Tife quickly took his car and I entered. He quickly ignited the engine and the Honda Civic sped off towards Ikeja – Lagos Mainland. House 11. Nixon and Theodore also followed us in the van.
Two hours later , we arrived at her residence. The place was calm.
Flies were hovering around the compound. When we moved closer to her door, an acrid and pungent smell filled the whole place.
We held our noses to cut out the foul odour. Nervously, I grabbed the door knob. The door was already opened. I entered the room . Then I saw what I knew I would see, since entering the compound and meeting that pungent smell.
No matter how I described it here , it will be a pale description of the real bizarre or rather horrendous scene.
Gina laid in a pool of blood, with her brain smashed out . A revolver was lying just a few inches from her blown -out head.
The whole room was smelling like rotten egg, or decayed rats. Her body stunk. It was simply gruesome.
As I forced myself not to take in the stench, I could still feel the bacteria clang unto my nostril. Worms bubbled out from her mouth and other openings.
A whitish thick fluid oozed from other openings of her.
I spat involuntarily.
Unable to withstand the stench and pungent smell of her body any longer , I ran out of the room, and vomited involuntarily on the floor. Anger and regret well up in me as I shouted,
GOD. W-W-W-WHY !!!
<Third Person point of View>
Mike later called the police emergency number 112. Soon, two ambulances, two paramedics and the hazardous area response team came to the scene.The body was deposited at the police Mortuary.
–BREAKING NEWS —
GINA COMMITS “SUICIDE”
The lady , identified as Gina Ojukwu who was alleged to have killed Jackson Desagagne was found lying in a pool of blood at her hideout Ikeja – Lagos Mainland. She was believed to have shot herself in the head with the same revolver she used to kill her Jackson a few days ago.
Jackson Desagagne was believed to be the leader of a powerful gang- the Black Cobra.
Unconfirmed sources claimed she was seen in the company of a military man driving a Honda Civic
Just a week before her death.
She was a nurse at St.Paul Missionary hospital.
The Lagos State police said investigation was going on to ascertain whether she killed herself or was shot by someone else.
The death of Gina was the turning point in Mike’s life. He told himself, ” it doesn’t pay to be religious or righteous in this sinful world.”
Out of anger he refused to go home with Tife. He passed three nights under an iroko tree.
The hooting of owls, followed by a long “hooooooo, ” sped up his anger followed by the morning dew and hardness of the ground.
These subtle elements summed up his anger and became the stimulus that turned Mike from being a gentleman into a Beast.
When he finally went to Tife house, he told him about his plan to form a gang to fight Zolabin.
The objective of the gang was to protect the poor and the vulnerable and seek justice for them against the bourgeoisie who took pleasure in subduing the poor,the orphans and the downtrodden. Tife agreed to train him just the way he was trained in the military.
A lot of young men , mostly the poor and the vulnerable heard about the group came to enlist their names.
They have to under three months of
vigorous Military training in order to match the Cobra or any rival gang boot to boot and seek social justice for all. Mike ourdoored the gang with the name ” TI^T FOR TAT”
