Jumai Episode 5

Baban stormed into the lab, he was angry but much more he was afraid. Everything had been carefully planned up to this time, any hitch in that plan now would mean a lot of money wasted and worse; the end of him. The man who died at the WAAP office the day before had taken the kulunix and even though the relief people didn’t know it yet, it was too dangerous especially if the incidence repeated itself. It was a good thing he had not killed Doctor Coker yet.
“Where is he?” Baban asked.
“He’s waiting for you in his office.” Dongo answered.
Baban headed for the office. His sponsors were yet to hear about the death, neither had the press. But that was only a matter of time and he needed to have an answer when the questions started coming.
He opened the door and entered the office. Doctor Coker was on his feet, a very worried look on his face.

THE HAUNTED ASSEMBLY 6

“Hameed is the killer?” Kate asked, worry painted on her face.

Adam was not sure Hameed was the killer but he was almost sure Senator Bello wasn’t. Hameed had tried very hard to pin it on Senator Bello and with his very connected father, he had eventually succeeded. He could bet Hameed committed the murders.

“How are you going to prove that?” Kate continued. “Going after Hameed is not only going to anger his powerful father, it will also get you in trouble with the president.”

He knew that already. “That’s why they will not know we are doing anything until we are done investigating and have real proof.”

“How are we going to get the proof?” Kate was obviously not pleased with what he was doing.

Adam had no idea. He needed a miracle. He was already about to have one when Senator Dafe called claiming to know who killed Senator Halima but now he needed a miracle to find out who killed his miracle.

“Senator Dafe knew the killer. How did he know? We need to search his house properly.”

Kate shook her head. “We can’t do that. On what grounds are we going to search the house? The case is supposed to be closed or suspended at best.”

Adam nodded. It was frustrating; running an investigation without calling the shots. There had to be another way to enter the house.

There was another way to enter the house!

“Kate, the lady who worked for Senator Dafe, are we still holding her here?” Adam asked.

“Yeah, you need her for…” Kate started then understood where he was going. “You want her to spy for you?”

“Spy? No, I don’t need a spy. I need somebody to get me into the house without anybody knowing. She already helped someone get in. She will have to help me too.”

“Isn’t that a little risky?”

“Get the woman for me.”

“Uncle Adam…”

“Get her now.”

Kate left the room. Adam knew for sure he did not want to cross the general or the president without having something concrete to confront them with. He was desperate. He would do anything to get something to hold against Hameed, even if it meant entering Senator Dafe’s house illegally.

There was a knock on his door. Adam looked up and Detective Samson entered.

“Good day sir.”

“Found me something to charge Hameed Galadima with?” Adam asked.

“No sir.”

“So why are you here?”

“Another body was found.” Continue reading

THE HAUNTED ASSEMBLY 2

Immediately Adam got home he knew he was in trouble. The doors were unlocked. Ese never left the door open when she was going to sleep. He opened the door and entered. The door made a slight click when he closed it. He looked at the huge clock chiming away on the wall, it was almost one am. It was bad enough that he got home late when he had promised not to but having to tell Ese that he was on the case was worse. He flicked a switch and light flooded the living room. On one of the sofas was Ese, she was asleep. Not even the light woke her. He felt so guilty, she had actually tried to wait up for him.

He walked to her and knelt by the sofa. He brushed some straying strands of hair from her face, she looked so peaceful in her sleep. He placed his hands on her protruded stomach and smiled. He was going to be a father soon and he wanted to be there for his wife and baby but his child would live in a better and safer world if he could catch whoever killed the senator.

“Adam,” He had not noticed her eyes open. “You said you would not stay too long.”

“I’m sorry Ese. I had to take care of things before help came.” Adam said, helping her up from the sofa.

“This is the last we’ll hear of the investigation, right?” Ese asked.

Adam did not reply.

“Adam?”

“The IG called and…”

“You took the case?”

“I wasn’t exactly given a choice.”

She placed a palm on her belly. “Our baby is due in less than a month.”

Adam moved close to her and held her. “The case won’t affect that.”

She walked out of his embrace and headed for the room.

“I’m going to sleep, make yourself comfortable on the couch.” Continue reading

DEMONS ON CHURCH STREET: FINALE (PART 1)

Adam slid the gear into park, jumped out of the car and ran into the lounge. He looked around the room, Faruk was nowhere. He brought his phone out of his pocket and dialed his number. He chewed on his nails as the phone rang. He had hoped Tola was wrong about Faruk. Faruk had been the only friend he had kept for more than a whole year. He was a crazy person who lived in a fantasy world, more than a normal adult should but he was a true and loyal friend. Continue reading

DEMONS ON CHURCH STREET: EPISODE SIXTEEN

Adam opened his eyes and looked around as he tried to remember where he was. He was in his office. He had come to the office after dropping Ese and Tola in their houses and had dozed off on his chair. He could not imagine sleeping on his bed anymore, all he could think about was Kate and all the evil things the killer could be doing to her.

He looked at his door and noticed one of the junior detectives standing there.

“Hey, what are you doing? When did you enter?” Adam asked, sitting up. Continue reading
