D9ty7, peace be upon you. What you did with this story is not good at all. The main mistake you did was transferring this story to your blog. Even if you wanted it in your blog you could have at least be updating it here as well. And now you've started a new story and you stopped updating this one even on your blog sef. Sincerely speaking its painful oo.

Stumbled on diz piece by chance n I gotta say it's gud 2 read a crime thriller in naija setting.......even though it wasn't completed.
Oga OP, in as much as diz story is a work of fiction, geographical settings shld be as physically accurate as possible (myt be useful in oda stories). P.S: I stand corrected if I'm mistaken
1- CIA headquarters is in Langley, Virginia n not Washington DC as u stated in d early parts of diz story. CIA stations in oda parts of USA r jst field offices n safe houses
2- it's Israeli MOSSAD n nt Isreali MOUSSAD
3- I've neva heard of a Lagos-Ore express way (unless it's jst been built)
4- the name Danny Lovato sounds more spanish, italian or any central/south american country rather dan russian. (Or ao many Chukwudi of Ibadan u don eva meet). Think of names lyk Ivan, Igor, Boris, Vladmir, Stalinski etc
5- Unless American citizens are being investigated as victim/perpetrator of crime in diz story, d FBI has no operational jurisdiction in Nigeria.
6- D correct term is "field operative" n nt "field operator"
7- Mark Ashimolowo's character as a top CIA agent will mean dat he works outside d US much more dan he's been portrayed 2 hv attained his feats by working within d shores of USA. CIA has no operational jurisdiction within d shores of USA.

jontargeyren:FBI operate in Nigeria. That was what I thought until I saw someone working there in my church.
|Re: 1985.... 1987.... 2014--[a Crime Story] by jontargeyren(m): 3:33pm On Jan 21, 2017|
Like I stated: unless dia'z an investigation on an American citizen as a victim or perpetrator of any crime, den n only den do dey hv jurisdiction on foreign soil. N d FBI can operate wit or witout permission frm local authorities wia dey're @ dat point in time.
