NEVER LET ANYONE TELL YOU THAT YOU AIN'T GOOD ENOUGH. BRO/SIS, YOU ARE MORE THAN BEING JUST ENOUGH. NEVER LET YOUR CURRENT SITUATION DETERMINE YOUR FUTURE POSITION(Jimoh Ibrahim's dad was a bricklayer and his mum, a fish monger right now, he's a multi billionaire) #daretodream.
THE ADJACENT EPISODE 19: Lurking 3 blocks away from Emmanuel’s house
was Lanre quietly monitoring the proceedings
from his car through his binocular, he noticed
one more person inside car meaning the Alhaji
Hassim suspect was in the car with them. He
saw as the gateman and maid following the car
out of the compound, running after it as they
left.
His first impulse was to act like a troubled
neighbor and go into the house which he did and
what he found surprised him.
Lanre moved closer to the house. He could hear
the gateman packing his bag, the man who acted
kind of feeble became a lot more agile. He
thought that the man had stolen some money
from the house to elope but then the automatic
gates opened so he dived behind a garden and
saw as the gateman left the house in the new
LR4.
Lanre thought to himself, something must be up,
he called his immobile sponsor and said.
“ The Alhaji Hassim has been picked up, however
his gateman is leaving the house in a car which
is kind of unusual” Lanre’s sponsor answered
“Describe the suspect to me.” Lanre responded
“He’s middle aged, light in complexion and about
6 ft, I didn’t get a good look at him.”
His sponsor replied “That’s not Alhaji Hassim,
describe the gateman to me.”
Lanre answered, “He’s elderly, grey hair in his
front patch, bald and grey moustache, looks like
he’s in his early 60s”
His sponsor getting tensed up asked “Did you
get to see his hand, Alhaji Hassim has a fetish
for wristwatches.”
Lanre replied “I was lurking in a small garden but
I think I saw his hand as he was driving off, he
seems to be wearing a Rolex wristwatch.”
His sponsor’s voice heightened “Lanre!! Where
is he now?”
Lanre replied “Am currently trailing him”.
His sponsor replied “Never lose sight of him
because my friend, you’re tailing Alhaji Hassim

Re: The Adjacent. A Crime Thriller by handie(m): 10:24am On Oct 06, 2014
BELIEVE IN GOD AND BELIEVE IN YOURSELF AND SAY:YES I CAN CAUSE YOU REALLY CAN. HAVE A BLESSED WEEK
THE ADJACENT EPISODE 20: All credit goes to my big bros @ Deolu Bubble. This work wouldn't have existed without his contributions.
With the last instruction from his sponsor being
for him not to lose who he was tailing, Lanre
was sure the end of the show was drawing to an
end. He had employed all the known tactics he
knew about tailing people without getting
known. He allowed two cars in between them
with his eyes glued to the car he was tailing.
The LR4 seemed to be heading off the island and
towards Apapa. Lanre wasn’t sure if Alhaji
suspected he was followed and diverted but
either way, he would find out where he was
heading.
Apapa isn’t exactly tailing friendly as Alhaji’s SUV
kept swerving in-between containers making the
tailing difficult. With his absolute attention on
Alhaji’s car and maintaining visible distance from
him, Lanre had eliminated the space of 2 cars he
was using initially. He cut the distance down to
just a car in between them.
Lanre’s attention was broken by a call on his
phone. His caller was his sponsor and he picked
the call.
“Hello Lanre, hows it going?” Asked the caller.
“Well, I guess. We’re at Apapa right now” Lanre
replied.
“Apapa? ” The caller asked.
“Yes, I’m positive it’s Apapa, the Port is down
the road” Lanre restated his point.
“I don’t think Alhaji has any property in Apapa,
he particularly disliked the area, always
complained about how busy the roads are with
containers everywhere” The caller replied.
Lanre cut in “I will have to call you back because
he’s making a turn as we speak”
The line went off with Lanre’s voice being the
last. Alhaji’s SUV turned into a street, Lanre
turned in as well after about 4 seconds after.
The street seemed deserted; Lanre reduced the
acceleration as he moved through the houses on
the street. All the gates of the houses were
locked, he continued driving down the street. He
saw a gate closing down the road, he sped up to
the place where the gate was closing in and by
the time he got there, the gate was completely
shut.
He got out of the car, took of his top, put on
his bulletproof vest and put his shirt back on.
He brought out his 9mm handgun, tucked it
safely behind his back, put some catridges in his
denim pocket. He had a hunch that whatever lay
beyond the fence of the building was definitely
more than just an old man trying to escape
discovery.
Lanre got out of the car, moved close to fence.
The fence, not so high that he scaled it easily
and turned around to hear guns corking. He knew
the protocol of such things was to raise his
hands clearly above his hand, spreading his
whole fingers out and turn slowly.
When he fully turned around, he surveyed the
small army who numbered almost 15. They were
evenly spread around him in a semi circle. He
couldn’t find the old man who drove the car but
found another car driving out of the compound.
Lanre didn’t need anyone to tell him it would be
difficult to get out of this alive. Looking through
the boys he could tell they weren’t military
grade mercenaries; they were just thugs for hire.
One of them stepped forward to him clearly to
identify himself as the head of the gang.
He said “You do know it’s dangerous tailing a
retired Military man”
Lanre replied ignoring his earlier statement “So,
what’s this place?” Looking around the
compound, scanning around for exits other than
the one behind him, making himself at home in
the surrounding. The head of the gang couldn’t
sense fear from Lanre rather he could perceive
courage even in the position where he had been
outnumbered by them.
One of the trigger happy thugs corked the gun
but the head of the thugs signalled to him to
drop his gun. He obeyed the gesture and stood
at ease.
The leader continued “You seem rather at ease
despite how outnumbered you are, how is that
possible?”
Lanre smiled and whispered the following into
his ears
“The whole of your crew are untrained in
warfare, they just believe as far as they have a
gun nothing else matters but from what i can
see, some of the guns they’re carrying look dirty
and unclean.
There is a 70% chance of 80% of the guns
jamming when you open fire. Most of these guns
are used by your thugs to bully people that’s all.
There is no actual usage and if you don’t use a
gun just like another other metal device it will
rust and am banking on that for some of your
guns.
My friend, i used to be in the Army infact i was a
Major in the Army, Nigerian thugs don’t scare
me, all of you put together do not scare me. I
have gone for peacekeeping in Somalia, Sudan,
Liberia, Sierra Leone, folks there don’t have no
mercy. None of you would last a day in those
territories. I spent 5 years there, I was a
commanding officer for my squad.
So, a little charade of hoodlums with guns will
not scare me. Ok?
Now, I will ask you a few questions and you will
give me the answer to the questions i want or i
might have to test the loyalty of your men for
you or Alhaji.
Where is Alhaji heading to? ” Lanre said in the
most sincere and confident voice ever.
The leader couldn’t believe what he just heard,
he was furious, the anger brewing in him was like
a volcano. He wanted to move back to his thugs
were, but as he turned his back to Lanre, in a
rather swift and deadly calculated move, Lanre
took the head of the thugs captive hiding behind
his frame.
Clouding himself behind the frame of their
leader, not giving them a clear shot at taking
him out.
He pressed the tip of his 9mm handgun firmly
against the side of his head. The captive
immediately dropped his weapon. The thugs
weren’t sure of what to do next either to spray
their boss along with Lanre or just not do
anything.
Being a captive, their boss screamed at them to
all drop their guns and they obeyed. Lanre
carefully masked himself behind their boss
making sure that any shot fired will kill their
boss.
Lanre began his questioning behind their boss.
“If you remember correctly, I asked you a
question less than a minute ago, you didn’t
answer me. I wasn’t mad at you for not
answering. I mean….. it’s natural for you to
hesitate but walking out on me Thats what I
couldn’t take” Lanre said.
The leader was breathing fast and hard,he could
feel the tip of the metal against his head
wondering what sort of maniac Lanre was.
He said, “I still will not tell you, you cant get out
of this alive; we have everywhere covered”
Lanre smiled and replied “Let me give you a
little analogy of how I will survive this with little
bruises anyway. I will make you instruct your
thugs not to follow us, which they will obey
because if you don’t my will cut the superficial
vein at the back of your arm.
You will bleed to death,your boys will try to stop
the bleeding but they wont be able to, by this
time, i would have scaled the fence into the
main street and scale another random fence in
the area before they can even get out of the
compound because i will throw a grenade to the
fuel tank beside the house.
Some of your boys will be wounded while some
will be trying to save your life, either ways there
is a low probability of more than 2 of your boys
coming after me.
Do I look like i cant handle 2 of your men?
So, I would say your best bet is to tell me now,
so i wouldnt have to cut your superficial vein”
Lanre explained
“Now, let me ask you again, Where is Alhaji
heading? ” Lanre asked.
“Porto Novo!” The leader screamed, the thought
of the complete foolproof plan scared him.
Lanre used him as a shield out of the house, the
thugs were all looking as Lanre escaped with
their Boss.
Lanre opened the boot of the car and pushed
him inside,he protested
“What of the grenade and all the plans you spoke
of earlier
Lanre replied “I changed my mind! Moreover I
lied about the grenade”, he closed the boot of
the car and drove off. The thugs came out as
they heard the sound of the car but they couldnt
shoot.
