THE ENEMY WITHIN
Episode 6

Don't mind me jumping the gun like that. I was just a little bit carried away.


Let's go back to me on my way back to the office after receiving my father in-law's call.


Finally, I got to the office looking scared, suspicious and curious, all at the same time. Not knowing where to go to nor what to expect, I started questioning the look on everyone's face at the office trying to find a clue from their facial expressions and body languages suggesting that they know something about anything that happened last weekend or whatever scheme I'm about to fall into. I read meanings into every greetings, smiles or frowns; I couldn't get anything from them, everything seemed normal. I figured it's either these people are good actors or they just didn't know anything.


Eventually I summoned up the courage to go straight to my father in-law's office first before proceeding to anywhere else. I was expecting him to act as if nothing happened, same way he sounded on the phone, avoiding the topic and just ditching out instructions to me about work with a not-so-smiling face.


I knocked on his door and he invited me in. The moment he saw me, his face lit up! You will think NEPA took light on his face and I just brought it back 'hey my son! Ben o Ben.....' by now he was already up and approaching me with his arms wide open. I was surprised. 'See drama King' I thought to myself. He gave me a warm embrace! Can u imagine that? A warm embrace!! He said ' look ehn, no matter what happens to you in life always look at the positives to it, sometimes things happen for a reason'. I'm like this is what I should be telling this man (that is if I have the courage). I know I'm innocent but the advice he is giving me is what I should be giving him not the other way round.


He wasn't done. He gestured me to sit down by the long couch in his office and he sat beside me, placing his right hand on my left shoulder, while gesticulating with his other hand, he said 'look, good and bad things happen in life every day. Sometimes, good things happen for bad people and bad things happen to good people. But always believe in your God. Let him be your strong pillar of hope and soon you will see that everything He does is for your good'. All the while he was speaking, I was just nodding, my upper lip was going up and down as if I was trying to mutter something out in a very low tone but I was really not saying anything meaningful. I was looking subdued with my hands placed in between my laps


At this point I was 200℅ sure this man knows something I don't. I was sure he knows I didn't do it too. The look on his face seems like one of mischief, but he was calm and confident. The tone of his voice sounds genuine, yet I was feeling blank. He mentioned things happening to me, which means the status quo still remains as it was but he is now more than happy to see me which completely wasn't the case the last time we saw.


It was like he was reading my mind. He said 'Ben are you confused or lost? Which one?' I said 'both sir' and he replied by saying 'aah don't worry about a thing, not a thing! Be of good cheers and go about your daily routine the way things were'. Then he dropped a bombshell 'What I can't promise you though is if things will ever be exactly the same again for you or any of us, but my son......' He nodded at me reassuringly 'everything will be fine'............

THE ENEMY WITHIN - EXPOSED
Episode 7



We were all gathered together in my father in law's office. Departmental heads have been summoned to an emergency meeting via phone call from the C. E. O's secretary. However Jide my assistant and a teller officer also from my department were in attendance. Their purpose in the meeting was not known to me but I didn't really pay attention.


We were all exchanging pleasantries and trying to figure out why the emergency meeting was called. No one seems to have a clue. I have always been the one to know these things but since that mighty revelation by Abigail about a month ago now, my father in-law has been keeping his cards very close to his chest. He even asked me not to sign a single memo while also maintaining that all memos should still come to my desk afterwards I will then bring them to his table for signing and approval. He also made a little adjustment in my work schedule. He invented a new slip which becomes the mark of approval for every single transaction. This slip is stamped with my official stamp but with no signature just date and then sent to the Operations department for the transaction to be carried out. All I have to do is deliver this slip to the Operations department while the original memo stays in his office. This arrangement of me not signing any documents was strictly between me and my father in-law. No one else knows. So to every other person, I'm still the one in charge of approval.


All the while I’ve been living with a friend. My wife has refused to let me come back home nor even see my kids. I made a series of efforts to apologize to her to at least allow me to come home for a few hours to play with my kids but all to no avail. My mother won’t help, my father in-law won’t even discuss the issue with me and neither was Abigail anywhere within sight nor contact. The only person I could turn to was my mother in-law but there is just so little she could do. She is still struggling to deal with the news that I am about to father the children of her two daughters. The only way she helps is to bring my daughter Isabel to their house and allows me to come to visit her there.


My father in-law walks into the emergency meeting (looking seriously pissed) with about 5 Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) officers and closely behind them is Abigail - the author of my predicament - whom I have not seen since the incident. She didn't even look at me and neither was she smiling.


The sight of her and these other goons made me want to bolt. It was like my spirit left and came back within seconds, but I held on. A billion thoughts crept through my mind. Is this the day I finally go to jail for all the crimes I didn't commit? How could I be so stupid not to know that my coming back was a setup? Chai! Why did I even listen to my mum sef? I should have gone to Paris jejely.


I was deeply buried in this thought when my father in-law dropped the shocker! 'A fraud of 96.4million Naira has been committed by some staff in this Company............' I have never seen this look on his face. He wasn’t even wearing this look when Abigail announced that I impregnated her. He looked like someone who is about to pass a death sentence, mean and remorseless, as if he feels no pain. He continued ' unfortunately, this is not what we stand for at Grazmo oil. We pride our self in our integrity, transparency and honesty. For some set of people to commit these crimes is totally unacceptable and not in conformity with our norms. The investigation has been ongoing for a month now, and after gathering enough evidence we can boldly say we know who the culprits are.


At this point, Jide was all smiles, passing a look at me as if saying ' you are dead today '. I was sweating profusely; I wish something could whisk me away from this place. This is all b***s**t and a grand conspiracy to see my end! I said a little prayer within me and I reassured myself that my God in Heaven will eventually vindicate me. I have never stolen 10kobo of the company's money. I have spent personal money on official duties without seeking retribution. I have always lived with self satisfaction and great contentment.


One of the officers took over the speech from my father in-law ' the following staffs are under arrest and should please step forward as they will be going with us for questioning and interrogations.........' I was almost stepping out myself when the names were about to be called - ' Ogunmuyiwa Olujide! Ovienmwanda Patrick. You have the right to remain silent as anything you say can and will be used against you in the court of law'………………………
