It was 9pm on the 30th of April on thursday night, I was so
after the day’s job. I left the office at around 5pm after
the day. I left with a parcel which was sent from abuja to
femi who used to be our regular clients and I was chosen to
the package to him in his house as it was my new job and
delivery. He actually arranged for an home delivery with
manager. I was given the address and description to his
also his phone number. I went to his house after closing of
but he wasn’t at home. I called him to inform him about his
package and he told me to keep it till the following day an
to his house. From there, I went to adenike’s house who

got there at 6:38pm and dropped my “back-bag” ontop of
her bed. I
was relaxing wen she was offloading my bag to find the

polythene bag which I put in my bag with adenike’s fruits,
laptop and some other items. I went outside to purchase
card and before I came back inside, she had re-arranged the
had romance and made love together till 8pm that I left her
for my house.
I entered my room, prepared a spiced spaghetti for dinner,
to the bathroom and had a shower. At 10:45pm, I picked
android phone, inserted an earpiece into it and plugged it

blasting into my ear.
A small stone hit me on my head while sleeping and it
woke me up, I managed to strain my sleepy eye and open

window. On seeing the gun, my eyes opened wide. * I saw
net behind my window was torn with blade and the
window was forced opened with an iron rod, the
wasn’t tampered with . All this happened while I was
music blasting into my ears. A thick voice answered from
