THE ADJACENT EPISODE 20: Chike brought Emmanuel back to the JTF office
debriefing room, Emmanuel sat down confused.
Chike was watching from the one-way
bulletproof glass that demarcated the room
from the debriefing room. He sat down trying to
de-mystify the Alhaji Hassim man, alot of
questions were running through Chike’s mind
and the only person that could answer the
question as Alhaji Hassim himself.
His phone started ringing, the caller was Col.
Weyinmi
“Hello sir” Chike answered
“So, do you have Alhaji Hassim in your custody
now?” Colonel asked
“Yes sir, however, the suspect is a young
polished man” Chike replied
“Have you questioned him?” Colonel asked
“I’m about to, but from the looks of things I
don’t think he’s the one we’re looking for”
Chike added.
“Looks can be deceptive, Chike ” The Colonel
said.
“I will speak with you soon, please go ahead and
question him and if possible get a confession
out of him”, Colonel Weyinmi ended.
Chike dropped the call and took the Alhaji Hassim
case file into the debriefing room. As soon as
Chike entered into the room, Emmanuel became
anxious.
Chike dropped the gigantic folder on the table,
Emmanuel looked at the folder and back at
Chike’s face. Chike who at this point continued
to look through the folder, which contained as
more pictures as papers.
Emmanuel couldn’t understand what the silent
treatment was about. Finally Chike closed the
folder and looked at Emmanuel and spoke, “What
amazes me is how you’ve managed to stay
under the radar this whole time, I mean more
than 20 years.” Chike said.
“Stay under the radar for what?” Emmanuel
asked.
“I am a law abiding citizen, I don’t understand
what you’re talking about. I file in my taxes as i
should. I haven’t done anything illegal all my
life”, Emmanuel continued.
Chike definitely wasn’t buying any of his stories
and he replied “I’m not expecting you to cave in
immediately”.
Chike pulled out pictures of Karim & Mohammed
and pushed them to Emmanuel.
“These men worked with you for a long time and
died mysteriously a couple of days ago” Chike
said.
Emmanuel picked up the pictures and dropped
them after a few seconds and replied.
“I have never seen these guys in my entire life”
Emmanuel confessed.
“Okay, let me give you a background on
yourself, I love your convenient Amnesia but
with what you’ll be tried for. It’s better you
start confessing right now” Chike said
“Mr. Chike, I’m not the one you’re looking
for….Take a second look at me” Emmanuel said.
“Looks can be deceptive, my boss just told me”
Chike said.
“You and your dubious organization are
responsible for over 60% of the Oil bunkery that
goes down in Nigeria. This is a FG approved and
sponsored operation. The lowest prison
sentence you’ll get is life in prison and
everything you have will be taken from you. You
will be publicly humiliated, so for the sake of the
your kids and wife, just confess” He continued.
Sweat was gathering around Emmanuel’s
forehead despite the chilly condition of the
room. Emmanuel felt the weight of the whole
world on his shoulder.
The images of his family flashed infront of his
eyes, his daughters, his wife become public
hate spectacle, his friends and family’s rejection.
He couldn’t hold it anymore, he spoke
“Chike, I know you’re bent on solving this case,
but can you look more closely at your
investigation, I am surely not the person you’re
looking for” Emmanuel said.
“So, why are you living in that house? That
house is Alhaji Hassim’s house!!!!” Chike
screamed hard at Emmanuel.
“The house is a lease, its not mine. I leased it
from someone” Emmanuel lashed back
“What?? You better not be lying to me”,
Chike said.
“We just moved back into the country about two
years ago and we were scouting for houses. My
wife and I looked at all sorts of places. We
visited the house just beside where we are living
now and we really liked the house.
Someone came out of the house we currently
live in now, the gateman actually.” Emmanuel
explained
“Hold on” Chike interrupted him. “You met the
gateman inside the house??” Chike asked.
“Yes, he was the agent for the house, he gave
us the phone number for the landlord, we spoke
with the landlord, we negotiated and it was really
low, all we had to pay was 3.5 million per year
for a house at Bourdillon.
The deal scared us, we investigated, we covered
all our basics, the owner of the house lived in
the states, we spoke and exchanged emails and
finished the transaction however there was one
single condition to the deal”, Emmanuel
explained.
“Go on, what was the condition?” Chike asked.
“We have to keep the gateman” Emmanuel said.
“It wasn’t a big deal moreover we didn’t have to
go out to find a gateman”
Emmanuel continued.
“I noticed his room had A.C, strange isn’t it?
Also he was wearing a limited edition Rolex
wristwatch which I assumed you gave him,
right?” Chike asked
“I never gave him that wristwatch, I don’t know
how he got it, might be from the owner of the
house. Even the A.C he had it before we got
there.” Emmanuel said.
Chike got up, stormed out of the room and went
straight into Femi’s office. “I think we’ve been
barking up the wrong tree. Remember the
gateman of the house?”
“Yes,what has he got to do with this?” Femi
replied.
“Notice he was wearing a very expensive Rolex
wrist watch?” Chike asked.
“Emmanuel must have given it to him, right?”
Femi asked.
“He just said he didn’t and from what I saw, that
wristwatch is at least N5 million. We move out
back to that house in 5 minutes pick a team of 3
more men…” Chike continued.
“Chike, where did you get the Bourdillon address
we went to today?” Femi asked.
“Colonel sent it to me” Chike replied
“Are we sure this isn’t a witch-hunt?” Femi
asked
With that he ran out of Femi’s office without
answering Femi’s last question, hoping they
would still catch the gateman in the house.
