“I said who sent you to assassinate Mr. Anume?” A police asked loudly.

“Are you deaf? How many times have I told you that nobody sent us to him, we just fell like killing him.” One of the assassin nicknamed as Scorpion riposted instantaneously.

“You guys are proving to be stubborn, right? I’ll surely do that thing to you.” The police announced angrily. Just then a police officer barged into the welfare.

“Sir.” The interrogating police with sergeant rank saluted.

“They haven’t confessed, right?” The inspector asked suspiciously.

“Sir, I have tried almost every torture on them but they haven’t confessed, they must be hardened criminals.” The sergeant replied looking tiresome.

“Hmmm, excuse us for some minutes.” The inspector commanded the sergeant

“Sir, what about the bag in your hand, you know…” The sergeant tried to speak but the inspector barged into his statement.

“Will you leave this place now or I get you sack.” The inspector threatened.

“I’m sorry sir.” The sergeant begged, he saluted and he left the walfare.

“Ehn Ehn, any problem?” Scorpion asked looking eye in eye with the inspector.

“I’m Inspector Felix by name…” He paused.

“So?” Another assassin nicknamed Plezor asked impatiently.

“Guys, you know what…” He tried to compose himself but Scorpion barged into his statement.

“We don’t know anything, say what you want to say and leave, or you want to continue from where he stopped?” Blood, another assassin asked angrily.

“No o, few minutes ago someone came here, to my office to be precise, he said he is one Mr… I have forgotten his name, he said someone sent him to come and see me…” He paused.

“In short please.” Scorpion rebutted.

“Guy, let take it easy with him, you know policemen, I guess she has bribed him.” Olic uttered guessingly.

“Wow… you see what I’m saying, I’m just putting on uniform this black uniform but I’m working for money, after money na money na my guys. In short, the man said he was sent to me by one Mrs… Ah! What’s that her name again?” Inspector Felix explained and asked directing his question to foolish Olic.

“Mrs. Benita.” Olic corrected.

“Yes… Mrs. Benita, he gave me the sum of two hundred thousand naira for your release.” Inspector Felix announced.

“I said it, I know I won’t sleep here tonight. Ah! Madam Benita I swear you sure pass anybody.” Scorpion happily hailed.

“So can we go now?” Scorpion asked happily.

“That’s why I’m here… the other police officers must not know about this, we have to do things secretly, this must be between you guys and I, and I will make arrangement and preparation on how you guys are going to escape tonight so you don’t have to worry yourself.” Inspector Felix explained with smile all over his face.

“Okay oga police, we don here, but this place dry o, I feel like drinking ‘Ogogoro’ (Local Gin).” Plezor announced.

“As if I know you guys must be thirsty of those stuffs, I brought you some alcoholic drinks and here are some Local Gins.” Inspector Felix announced, he brought out two bottles of Vodka, two bottles of Goldberg and a bottle of Trophy from the polythene bag he was handing, he also brought out some sachets of Local gins from his pockets and he handed over everything to those criminal.

“You guys have to drink fast, the interrogating officers must not caught you in this act o.” Inspector Felix vocalized.

“Oga officer you no dey drink?” Plezor asked smiling.

“I’m in uniform and I am not permitted to drink alcohol while I’m in uniform.” Inspector Felix paused.

“Just drink, celebrate your ‘in advance’ escapement.” Inspector Felix uttered.


Few minutes later, empty bottles of beers could be found lying on the ground, empty sachets of local gins could also be visibly seen on the ground, the criminals were all drunk to stupor.

“Felix, here is your chance.” Inspector Felix thought.

“Hope you enjoy yourself?” Inspector Felix began.

“Yes…” The replied in chorus but drunk.

“Hmmm… who is that Mrs. Benita? Where do you know her and how many times have you worked for her?” Inspector Felix asked directing his question to all.

“Ehmmm…” Olic tried to answer but Scorpion barged into his statement.

“Fool do you know her, officer let me answer you jare.” Scorpion replied as he staggered rose on his feet.

“Okay, Scorpion where is she living?” Inspector Felix asked.

“Officer, I don’t really know her house but I know she is the Vice Principal of C.H.S.” Scorpion answered.

“Wow… you answered brilliantly, clap for him.” Inspector Felix commented and the other idiots clapped their hands for Scorpion.

“How many times have you guys worked for her?” Inspector Felix asked.

“One time but we failed her.” Olic answered.

“Hmmm… so how do you met her?” Inspector Felix asked smiling.

“We met her the way you met your wife.” Scorpion joked and they all burst out laughing.

“It’s okay, you guys will surely escape tonight.” Inspector Felix teased

“Officer, I need a bottle of Goldberg.” Scorpion requested.

“Don’t worry, you will drink that in jail.” Inspector Felix concluded and he slammed the door behind himself.
