THE ARMED ROBBER

Episode 10

Iyabo’s phone rings. Mid-way the Manager aborted the call.

Manager: (talking to himself) Wait ooo!! Am I in the right frame of mind. Why am I calling her? What if something happened and Mr Ojo discoverer that am the one who gave out the information. I will loose my job for breaching bank/customer confidentiality. God forbid!! Yes the woman is nice to me but that not withstanding……

Iyabo calls back but the Manager refused to pick it

At the hotel. The document is ready. And Mr Ojo decided that the three of them should take the document to the Manager.

Mr Ojo: Gentlemen, I have decided that the three us should go with the document.

Charles and Austine: Ok, no prob…

Austine: Sir, I have discover who kidnapped the lawyer’s wife…

Mr Ojo: How? Who?

Austine: One of our informant just called me as we are preparing the document….

Charles:(cuts in) I remember you went out to receive a call….

Austine: Yes, that was the call…. He is one of our officers we planted to work with a notorious kidnapper we are trying to nail…

Charles: Wow!!! You have one of your men working with a kidnapper so as to get information. This is fantastic!!!! I only see this kind of operation in American movie…

Austine:(smile)…. Don’t let us go into that now… The most important thing is how to rescue her… I have put all machinery in place for us to tackle the situation… Had it been, the woman’s phone is on, we would have known the location where she is kept….. But that not withstanding, we are working seriously on it….

Mr Ojo: Austine, I want to thank you very sincerely… Maybe when all these are over we will have plenty of time to talk. God spare us to continue to breathe…

They went to Austine car and sped away to the manager’s residence…

Mr Ojo: Let’s I forget, Charles tommorow morning you will go to the office and resume as the Manager. You will take along the letter terminating Kunle Arowojogbe’s appointment… He will want to come to the office tomorrow not knowing that I now knew about his escapades with Iyabo.

Charles: Alright dad…

Mr Ojo: I will give you an appointment letter duly signed by me. Let’s turn back.

Austine: Why sir?

Mr Ojo: All these Wahala are seriously getting at me… I have forgotten that Kunle too, as the manager has authority to authorise some certain amount. We will present his termination letter to the Manager so that he too won’t explore that loophole to take out money…

Charles: We just have to be fast about it..

They turned back and headed straight to the hotel… On their way, Mr Ojo’s phone rings…

Mr Ojo: it is an international call…. It is my lawyer……….Hello…sir… How are you.?

Mr Ojo: Am fine… Your….

Lawyer: (cuts in) My wife had been kidnapped. The kidnapper just called me. I guess they got my international number from my wife… I just want to know maybe she delivered the file before she was kidnapped…

Mr Ojo: No… Not at all… But we have discovered who the kidnapper is…

Lawyer: How? Did you know she was kidnapped?

Mr Ojo: Don’t worry. We will talk about it latter……..Let me give the phone to the security person..

Mr Ojo handed the phone to Austine

Austine: Hello sir… We have identified the kidnapper to be Don Esien…. He doesn’t hurt or kill his victim in as much as the ransom is paid… He can keep his victim with him as long as the time the agreed ransom is paid… I know of a victim who spent close to seven months before the ransom is paid. Sir, have they demanded for ransom…?

Lawyer: Yes, they demanded for hundred million…

Austine:(cuts in) Hundred what?

Lawyer: Though, I have negotiated to twenty million. And he said he will get back to me….

Austine: Sir, you continue to talk to them. Do you have the number he use in calling you?

Lawyer: No…. I will be around tommorow… I have gotten a ticket for tomorrow morning… Thank you very much..

Austine: You are welcome sir.

The line went dead..
Mr Ojo: I hear you shouted hundred…… Hope they are not demanding for hundred million…?

Austine: That was their initial demand. But he said, he had negotiated to twenty million but they haven’t reach a conclusion yet…

Charles: What do you think we do?

Austine: Don’t worry… We will rescue her alive…

At the residence of KTB. Everybody is assembled…

KTB: Gentlemen, few minutes ago, we are on the verge of becoming a billionaire. But, the operation suddenly have a little setback…

kTB has a way of getting into the psyche of his subordinates… When they heard billion, everybody started doing the maths to know what his share will be base on the agreed sharing formula….

KTB continues… He explained everything that transpired in the past few hours to them..

kTB: Hacker, you have to get the location of Iyabo and Kunle, including the lawyer’s wife who holds the most important file…

KTB ask Jungle to continue and explain everybody roles…

Jungle: Now, Moor will take Intel. They will go to the Airport and await the lawyer’s arrivalwho is currently out of the country. I know the by now might have contacted him and he will be coming home any moment to pay the ransome in other to free his wife…… We have gotten his picture from his Facebook account. Why do we need the lawyer? It is becauset, the moment the Lawyer meet with Iyabo’s husband they can draft a new WILL. The old one will no longer be useful taken into cognizance the manner which it was lost base on the explanation of our in-house lawyer… Abi the law…

Barrister Ekun: Yes, you are right..

Jungle:(continues) So, that is why we must get the lawyer… We don’t have information on the kidnapping. Therefore, Smalling and Tiger will go out and dig information on who is behind the kidnapping. If we know him, we might be lucky, he might be our person. All we need is the document. We can as well bring him in…… Sign K will join Junior at the house of Iyabo’s husband… Junior told us nobody is in the house for now… That means Iyabo and Kunle did not return there after they escape from here.. Sign K and Junior will ransack the house to get any document(s) with the signature of the husband… KTB and myself will collaborate with Hacker and go after Iyabo and Kunle… Barrister Ekun will go home and await further instruction… Barrister, please make sure your phone is available. We might call you anytime…

Barrister Ekun: Ok, no problem…

KTB: I hope everybody understand clearly what they are suppose to do… Nobody must fail…. This might be our breakthrough to quit this job… I have informed Alhaji and he had accepted to buy everything provided it is perfected. And I have assured him.

They all nod in agreement and dispersed….

Iyabo and Kunle lodged in an hotel…

Iyabo: The bank Manager called me. I missed the call and I tried calling back but he didn’t pick it again….

Kunle: My dear, how much do you have? Because, I was able to withdraw ten million yesterday, base on the mandate I have including everything I have been able to steal all these while… I should be having close to fifty million…

Iyabo: What are you trying to say? That we should abandon the operation and run…

Kunle: Yes, he who run from a fight livel to fight another day.,…

Iyabo: Kunle!! Kunle!! No now… You use to be strong and intelligent… That was why I chose you in the first place above every other men… Please, don’t even go there… I have suffered enough… I beg you find a way out please, my dear…

She started crying…

Kunle: Alright, stop crying, I will find a way….

Iyabo:(amidst tears)…. We cannot labour in vain…. We have suffered alot to forgo it…. If not for those greedy bastard…

Kunle draw her closer, started kissing her and they made love…..

The young man drop the lawyer’s car at the agreed location and entered his friend’s car whom he had called to come and pick him…
They got home and he dropped the file on the table.. He went to the bathroom to shower and his friend picked up the file and started reading it…. Suddenly, the friend shouted and call him to come quickly… He rushed out and say…..

Young Man: Eri, what is the problem?
