Yea I know Irene’s abduction looks like an exaggeration to boost up the story. In fact
to me it equally sounded very strange and unbelievable when i got the news as well.
Now let’s go back to how it all happened.
On that fateful day, i left my house by 6:00am in order to supervise a delivery which
arrived very late the previous night in one of my gas stations. However i first headed to
Peter’s house with the intention of picking him up to accompany me, because i was still scared of the unknown.
But as Peter got into my car on getting to his house, i got a very shocking phone call from a friendly neighbour.
“Oga Emma i saw you drive out minutes ago, please stay low where ever you are. Some
hoodlums just got to your compound five minutes ago and they are shooting
sporadically. Please stay away. I’m seeing everything from my house” he informed me
nervously while i gasped. My mind instantly ran to Irene.
“oh God” i breathed.
“please can you see their car, please i need more information” i begged desperately.
“yea they came with a red tinted Camry car. I don’t know how many of them are in the
car or in your compound” he answered.
“shit” i screamed, hung up and dialled D.S.P Ato’s phone number, equally reversing my car at the same time as if i was James Bond, while Peter stared at me curiously.
I told officer Ato of the latest development, and he assured me that his men will be at
my house within minutes. I hung up and drove furiously, heading to my house as if i had nine lives.
“where are we going?, not your house of course” Peter asked with fear after listening to
my conversation with Ato. “yes and don’t try to stop me” i replied seriously.
“this is madness, you aren’t thinking straight. Your house is the last place you should be right now” he begged, but his pleas fell on deaf ears. My mind was only on Irene’s
However as we got to the junction leading to my street. I got another phone call from
one of the guys guarding my house. “madam oo, madam oo. They took madam” he cried over the Phone, confirming my fears. Just instantly, a red tinted Camry which fitted the description of the hoodlums car, came up at the junction and headed towards the opposite direction with eye catching speed. I quickly followed them without any care for my safety, though i kept a safe distance behind. The light morning traffic equally worsened the situation by giving the hoodlums enough space to speed dangerously.
In no time we got to Keta-Accra highway, without encountering a single police check point. “i don’t understand what you are trying to do” peter protested seriously.
“we have a good chance of finding their hideout and solving all these mysteries once and for all by following them. This is the time to prove yourself to me” i grinned coldly.
“we also have a good chance of losing our lives in the process. This is madness” he
lamented bitterly. I scoffed and drove on without another word. The speeding Camry definitely held the answers i badly needed. I couldn’t afford losing it.
A very risky decision.
Will this call for war? Guess what happen next between the unknown robbers and Emma. will the police rescue them? Comment bellow as your thought could change the story to your interest.
