destinations, on our way, i stylished told cnn
about what dupe told me**
Me: Guy na your house i want to sleep this
night o
Cnn: you must be dreaming, what of your
own house? Moreover don’t you see my
queen beside me? Let me tell you incase you
don’t know, Tola is sleeping in my house?
Tola: No problem uncle pesman, you can
sleep with us, you and your friend will sleep
on the bed and i will sleep on the floor
Cnn: No way, you cannot sleep in my house,
maybe next time
Me: Ok guy goodnight, i left him and Tola, i
don’t know what next to do, i brought out
my phone scroll through my contact to
called some of our friends, maybe i can sleep
with them. I called like 12 numbers, some
are switched off, some don’t pick, some said
they were not in town, some said they were
having visitors. I tried all my possible best
but all went in vain, i don’t see where to
pass the night, i made up my mind to sleep
in my room *** .
pesman act like a man,
nothing will happened to you, Yes you are
right nothing will happened to me, i
reasoned with my inner mind ***
I opened my door, entered my room, i was
shaking like xmas goat that is waiting for
his judgment, i switched off my phone
hiding it somewhere, i says some prayers, i
asked for God protection over my life, off my
wears left only boxer and singlet
(underware) on me.
I lay flat on my bed to sleep, but sleep eluded
me, i couldn’t sleep, i was scared.
proper closed, my door
was closed ** Pesman don’t scared, you are
saved ** i was still in thought that i don’t
know when i slept off
A ray of flash light flashed across my face,
my eye swanged opened to face the reality,
there were two guys in my room with local
gun and cutlass held firmly in their hands,
my heart
skipped like 10sec before it started to be
beating faster, my underware was soak
my sweat, i felt like ground should open and
swallowed me, one of the guy moved closed
me and landed hot slap on my cheek, my ear
started malfunctioning immediately, i can’t
hear clearly ( Am doomed i’m not president
buhari oo, who will fly me to London for ear
Guy1: Stand up, where did you keep your
phone and money?
Me: My lord, i don’t have any money on me
sir, and i just lost my phone this afternoon
Guy2: Don’t tell me you don’t have any
money and phone in this room, if we search
your room and found money and phone,
you are in trouble.
The second guy went outside, entered again
with chair in his hand, oya sitdown on this
chair my friends, he commanded me
I sat on the chair, he unzip his bag brought
out a robe and tied me down to the chair,
mouth was also plastered.
They started searching my room looking
what to stealing. My mind flashed back to
Dupe, her words continued ringing on my
head ” Something is telling me that you
should not sleep in your room this night, i
don’t know what is going to happened o,
but my instinct is telling me something bad
happened pesman please don’t sleep in
your house”
Pesman you are doomed and dupe warned
me ooo, how wished i could turn back the
hand of time
