Re: The Adjacent. A Crime Thriller by handie(m): 12:56pm On Oct 08, 2014
I JUST WANNA SAY THANKS FOR READING MY STORY AND YOUR WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT. Without you guys, this wouldn't have been possible. obrigado, danke, merci, oshe, nagode, uwese.
THE ADJACENT EPISODE 21: Nikky got the message kind of late but it came
anyway, she was approaching the house on
Bourdillon, her cover was another agent from
the JTF. She had put together her fake
credentials, dressed smart and knocked at the
gate.
She made sure the JTF team had left before she
approached the gate.
She pressed the bell several times before the
maid came in to open the gate, the maid was
still fidgeting from the morning raid. It was her
first time seeing so many armed men in the
house.
Nikky sensed her fear, and took advantage of it,
She entered into the compound and looked
around, trying to imagine how the arrest took
place. Nikky asked the maid what happened in
the house earlier on.
Being naive, the maid was scared and ran
through everything from how the JTF came, the
arguments in the house, how her boss was taken
to how the gateman took off as well.
Nikky stopped her at the point where she said
the gateman took a car and left. She
immediately went to the gateman’s room. The
room was locked, Nikky was in the middle of
breaking into the room when the Emmanuel’s
wife, Sarah came out.
“Hello, Please who are you” Sarah asked
Nikky stopped and moved over to Sarah to
introduce herself.
“Hello, My name is Chioma Ogochukwu, I’m with
the JTF and we’re running data forensics on your
property. Our tactical team just left with your
husband. Am I right?” Nikky lied.
“Yes, they did! But just out of curiosity, what’s
the job of the forensic team in this case”, Sarah
asked.
“We’re here to see if we can dig for more
evidence that might have been missed by our
tactical team.” Nikky explained.
“Why are you trying to break down the
gateman’s door?” Sarah asked.
“We just received intelligence that your gateman
has left the house with your husband’s LR4 SUV,
is this true?” Nikky asked
“He has left alright but not with my husband’s
car, that’s the Landlord’s car and we’ve been
told the gateman can use the car. The owner of
the house is a really generous man” Sarah
explained.
“Have you ever met with the owner of the house
in person?” Nikky asked.
“No, we communicate via email. We just pay the
rent into his account and send him an email
when such is done” Sarah replied
“I’m sorry ma’am, I need to break down this
door, we need to gather evidence as the
gateman has fled” Nikky said.
Nikky broke the lock of the room. It was cozy
and chilly as the A.C wasn’t switched off,
nothing seemed out of place. Looked exactly like
a gateman’s house but a lot more conducive.
Nikky continued looking at the room, she pulled
the mattress up, nothing underneath. She
walked over it and it seemed like there was
something underneath the rug, Sarah and the
house maid were standing outside observing her.
She pulled the rug aside and saw a small safe
embedded into the concrete and covered with a
soft wood. As she pulled the lever of the safe,
she found out it wasn’t locked but all that was
left there were papers, junk and all.
Nikky received another text on her phone, she
pulled out of the phone and read it, “JTF team
heading back to that place, their E.T.A is 5
minutes”.
She grabbed what she could and heaped them in
her car, however she saw some French ticket
stubs in the place, she took some and left some
for the JTF team.
She came out and explained to Sarah that some
of her team members would be coming soon,
but that she had to leave because it was another
unit that was coming. Nikky heaped the
documents into her car and disappeared.
She drove back to her hotel room and started
analyzing the document. She found out that the
next place Alhaji would go would be Benin
Republic, if he wasn’t already there.
Alhaji was just clearing his vehicle at the Seme
border under another alias of Modibbo Graham
Missah. The customs had just cleared him to
move on. He picked up his Benin phone and
called his yacht to prepare for him.
He was laughing to himself, he was sure
someone sold him out, who sold him out was
what he was about to find out.
Hot behind his trail was the dexterous Lanre,
Lanre grabbed his phone and called his sponsor.
“Hello, Alhaji is heading to his Yacht, the time is
now, leave right now” Lanre said.
A smile came up Rooney’s face, payback time….
He rolled his wheelchair into another room
where a team of mercenaries were waiting for
him…
____
Jibola Balogun was also waiting for a phone call
but got a text message on his phone, it read,
“Alhaji is about to escape, head to Porto Novo
immediately”.
Jibola went into his room, entered a secret
password into a wall and the door slid open, his
little home armoury. He picked up guns,
catridges, cash and his international passport.
He went to his wife’s room, on her sick bed and
kissed her goodbye, promising to redeem her
family’s image…..
As Jibola was about to leave, he sent an
anonymous tip to Chike about the Porto Novo
departure of Alhaji Hassim.

THE ADJACENT EPISODE 21: Specially dedicated to Onemansquad, Hameenat94, Fatalvelli, Mention, Labaski, and everyone who has been on this thread.
Lana had not heard from Chike for a couple of
days, Nikky also seemed to have veered off the
planet. It seemed like both of them had shifted
base into Oblivion and Lana was worried about
everything since Chike had notified him to stop
all of the bunkery activities.
Well, sometimes bad guys make the best good
guys.
Lana had tonnes of money in his account but
was worried that he had been left out of the
loop and that Nikky also wasn’t picking her calls.
For a minute, Lana thought he was being set up
by Nikky but hurriedly brushed the thought off
his mind because he knew he was co-operating
with JTF on their investigations and that was
enough to buy him some goodwill.
Lana dialled Chike’s number which he didn’t pick
until he finally did on the third dial.
“Hi Lana, you’re quite persistent” Chike
answered
“Funny thing, I have been calling you and you’ve
refused to pick or call me back” Lana replied
“Yes, I apologise about that, I’m currently
enroute Benin Republic, Porto Novo to be exact”
Chike said
“Whats happening down there?” Lana inquired
“It’s this Alhaji Hassim business; we’re hoping to
intercept him at his yacht” Chike said
“Okay, isn’t he anonymous? Have you seen his
picture? How do you hope to achieve this” Lana
inquired
“Dont worry,we have our few little secrets, one
of them is that he wears a Patek Phillipe World
Time wristwatch with code written behind it, the
code is for his Swiss Bank safety deposit box. All
the secrets are locked in there, that is just one
of the many things we’ll use to identify him”
Chike explained
“Just that? You people think you have it figured
out, right?” Lana asked
“So, what are you folks going to do with him
when you catch him” Lana continued
“Why am I even telling you all of this, why are
you calling?” Chike responded
“I just wanted to know what’s happening with
the investigation, haven’t heard from you or
Nikky in days” Lana said
“Now, you know; Is there anything else?” Chike
was hurriedly trying to get off the phone
“I’ll be out of the country for a while.” Lana said
“Just roam your line, I might need to confirm
some things with you” Chike said
As soon as Lana got off the call, He started
packing while making a call to his travel agent to
book him a one way business class ticket to
London.
Alhaji Hassim arrived first at his yacht, saw his
crew but the Sailor wasn’t around as he went to
Cotonou. Alhaji went into his office and began to
shred all the incriminating documents.

THE ADJACENT EPISODE 22: Lanre managed to squeeze himself past the
customs and immigrations officers at the Seme
border, bribing anyone and everyone who
stopped him. He drove through the Nigerian
border, scanning left and right. On his right he
could see the empty space of mud land, people
coming and going about their business.
He saw some people shouting at each other
because they refused to give up their bag to be
searched. Today at the border was very busy, he
had to drive at a snail’s speed. As it was his
first time in this country, he continued to drive
slowly until he got to an highway that led into a
town. He stopped his car and as soon as the
people around the round-about saw him park his
car, they ran to his car, each to sell him
something, he pointed at a particular one and
the rest left.
The official language of Benin Republic is French,
but it’s common knowledge that a lot of
Beninese speak Yoruba and Fon. He summoned
the boy he chose over, wound down his glass
and tried to speak with him. He began the
conversation, also using his hands as sign
language.
“Sogbo Yoruba?” (Do you understand Yoruba)
Lanre said, using hand signs to drive home his
point
The boy nodded his head in agreement, Lanre
was happy that the rest of the journey wouldn’t
be as hard as he thought.
“Ona ibo ni Port Novo, Apa otun abi Osi” ( What
direction is Porto Novo, Right or Left) Lanre
asked
The boy replied “Otun” and also pointed to the
right of the juction. Lanre had one more
questions before they began their journey into
the city
“Somo ibi ti oko oju omi nla ma wa ni be” (Do
you know where the big boats dock) Lanre asked
as slowly as possible
The boy replied “Beeni, mo mo e be, e be ni a
ngbe” (Yes, i know the place, that’s where we
live)
“Mu mi lo si ibe” (Take me there) Lanre said
counting out N10,000 and handing it to the boy.
As the car drove off, there was a sound in the
car of someone hitting the boot of the car, he
knew it was the thug from Apapa he locked in
the boot of his car, he looked the boy dead in
the eye and smiled.
__
Jibola Balogun had just arrived the Office of a
friend in Nigerian Customs & Excise Office in
Seme border. Jibola has never been in a rush
worse than this. Jibola couldn’t sit down, he was
pacing around and few minutes later the man he
was waiting for came in. A fragile looking man
greeted Jibola but he wasn’t in a mood for
pleasantries.
“Good afternoon, Mr Balogun” He said
“Afternoon Officer, we don’t have time to talk,
all the talk we’ll be doing can be done in the car
on our way” Jibola said, hurrying the officer up.
The Officer led the way. “How many soldiers do
you want me to bring” The Officer said
“Two armed officers will do, this operation is off
the books” Jibola said
They all got into a Toyota Prado and rode into
the neighbouring country.
