Governor Martin froze in fear, ranging from Kayle muffled screams to the feminine voice he heard.
He was petrified, shaken to the feet and unable to look back for the fear of what he would see but either way, that almost seemed inevitable.
He could hear slow steps which was inaudible to the ears, but anyway his ear picked the sounds.
The sounds stopped and he felt the pressure of someone behind him but still, he refused to look back and that gave him enough confidence to protest. After all, the people of Rivers state didn’t vote for him to be a coward. They voted for competency. He needed to be strong, to be strong for his people. To prove himself strong to his counterparts who he thought had orchestrated the attack on him.
She could feel his pulse and she very much knew he was only forming brave. It would only be a matter of time before she get him dished on a panic-stricken plate.
She walked to his front with her hands crossed, staring right into his eyes.
Governor Martin felt the eyes piercing his soul and he avoided her gaze. He never knew what he was dealing with but right there standing in front of him was a lady dressed in an overall ninja suit.
Probably, she was hired to assassinate him, so he thought.Alexandra raised her right hand over her head to her knapsack and brought out an injection.
He immediately froze on seeing the injection and took a step back.
“Another step from you, will make you lose this”, Alexandra threatened, bringing out an android device. She showed him a live video of a middle aged woman with a much more younger girl strapped to a chair with bombs strapped to their stomach.
She waited in anticipation to read his expression and yes, she got what she needed as Governor Martin gasped in disbelief. He was obviously stunned and gobsmacked.
He opened his mouth but nothing came out except for heated air which freed itself from his grasp.
“So Governor, comport yourself and cooperate or you lose your wife and your daughter”, she said with a tone of finality.
She walked closer to him and pushed his head sideways to reveal the part of his neck. She took the injection which contained a yellowish substance and drove it into his neck with agitation. He yelped in pains and immediately fell on the ground with a thud.
The injection contained a deadly substance which is called serum. It will make him lose consciousness for twelve hours.
There was a loud noise, followed by the sirens of the police blaring loudly.
“Seems like i got company”, Alexandra said aloud to herself and chuckled.
She dragged the governor to the window, broke the glass with a kick and carried the governor on her shoulder.
She jumped out of the window which was the fourth floor of the governor’s mansion and held onto a parachute which aid her in landing safely.
She landed beside a parked SUV and opened the door to the backseat which she laid him on it.
She jammed the door and opened the door to the driver’s seat and hopped in.
She closed the door and banged the honks with her hands which made a loud ‘pinh pinh’ sound.
She needed the attention of the police.
She continued banging the horn until when she knew she got their attention.
The police cops heard the honks of a car which persisted for a while and some diverted their vehicles to where the sounds of the honks emanated from.
They suspected nothing as they drove towards the black SUV Jeep.
Alexandra smiled broadly, she now have the attention she sought. She only want to put them to a test, to test their intelligence.
She got behind the wheels and ignited the car engine.
She stepped on the accelerator and took off with an alarming speed Immediately the Jeep roared to life. Driving recklessly hitting the 80km/hr mark on the speedometer.
The police were surprised as the SUV Jeep sped away. They immediately gave it a hot pursuit.
Racing speedily after the SUV in a convoy of vehicles.
Alexandra laughed heartily enjoying the whole show, she switched the gear and increased her speed driving 100km/hr
“Oh wow! This gonna be one hell of a ride!”, she said aloud still laughing at the cops.
