Episode 12.

We arrived the place at the early hours of the next day but the place was too classy to be a drug place and I placed a call to the other guys just incase the wounded guy gave us a wrong address.
"He's dead, not our fault though but he wasted time to talk to us and lost enough blood, my pal said and I closed my eyes and dropped the call.
"You been expect the place to look like your village kitchen before? My friend beside me asked.

"The problem is how are we going to enter this place? Any mistake we are dead o, this place too big, I Replied.
"What should we do now? See as we don reach promise land but we no fit enter, wahala no dey ever finish, the other guy said.

"Let's involve the police, I said.
"You say? Involve wetin? One asked.

"Listen to me, we are not going to tell them everything. But if we Can give them just a little hint that something is going on there so we can enter with them. We have to do something, so let's go find a station, I replied and since I was driving I started the engine not waiting to hear what they will say.
We got to a station and laid the complain though we didn't tell them everything,
"How did you know about this? A police man asked.

"One of them escaped, but sadly he's dead before we got here, excess drugs killed him and they told us a huge number of drugs will leave this night, I replied even though the late guy never said such thing.
"Are you sure about this information? That building is a shopping mall that sells things very cheap for the people and it can't be open by this time, another police man said.

"Have you checked the back? There's another building there right or is it residential? I asked and they just looked at me.
"You better be sure about this though we are only going to check just to confirm, one said.

'You don't believe us? We traveled all night to come here just for something that is not true? I asked.
"We have to confirm this allegation, another replied.

"And what if you get killed? You think they will let you go after checking out? One of my pal asked.
"Fine we'll go check it out prepared, but you better be sure about this, one replied and made a phone call and I turned to my friends.

"What do you think? I asked.
"They don't look serious to me. But since they say its a shopping mall even though there's no signboard indicating that, we'll go in when the place is open, he replied and the man was done with his call.

"Our big man has to come and then action will be taken, he said.
"Can we come also? I asked.

"No and thanks for the information, he replied and I nodded.
"Thanks too and please be fast about it, I said and we left the station.

"I don't trust him, I said while driving back to the place.
"I no dey ever trust them so am not surprised, one said and I checked the time to see it was 6a.m.

We parked opposite the mall some distance and I saw my friends dozing off,
"No try am o, na me suppose sleep, I said to them.
"No be you dey fight for your woman, yeye boy, one said and I laughed hitting the steering very impatient.

"But this people get sense sha, we fit enter buy some cheap stuff before operation, one joked.
"Na me for kill you, I said and saw the guy with the one eye leaving the gate in a hurry.

'That's one of them! I shouted and drove immediately towards him while my guys opened up and threw him inside and drove off where it was clear.
"Ssshhh calm down before we go comot this other eye. Just behave like a good boy, one of my friend said tapping his cheek.

"What do you want? He asked.
"Wetin dey go on there? Nah never mind because we sabi but we wan apply, space dey? My pal asked.

"In the mall? The guy asked.
'You know what am talking about, he replied.

"That is a shopping mall or don't you know? The one eye guy asked and we smiled and brought out a pen knife.
"I been hear say na girl chuck this Eye, make I help her complete am? My friend said taking the knife close to his eye and he shouted breathing hard.

"Okay okay, but how did you know? He asked.
"Because we been visit Una for your vacation ground and two of your friends don kpai. Okay we no get time for super story so you go take us in or not? My friend replied.

"You'll die, they will kill you! the one eye guy replied.
"That one no concern your one eye, you go give us entrance to the gate in or out? I asked.

"Fine, but you will die bastard! he Shouted and my friend touched him on the head.
"Good boy. Oya Mozzy drive, my pal said and I returned back to the place and my friends had their guns ready as I horned on the gate.

"They won't open that way, horn three times in bits, that's our sign, the one eye guy said when my friend pointed a gun on his head and I did that. The gate opened and we sat down well,
"Who are they? The gateman asked.

"Boss wants to see them, the one eye guy replied and he opened up well for us to drive in.
"Go straight that way don't stop, The guy said and we passed the mall and saw another gate which I horned in bits and it opened again.

The gateman attempted to look into the car but my pal who sat close to the door drew his head through the window and knocked him out.
"You will still die! The one eye guy said and the other hit him a pistol on his head knocking him off too and we drove in and parked well.
The guys we saw outside saw the strange car and their faces were not good. We didn't give them a chance, we began to drop them one after the other and the whole place turned to a battle field.

Men were coming out to meet us while we took cover somewhere clearing them but sadly our ammunition got finished yet the guys were coming out in numbers.
We surrendered and a guy on mask came to us as they surrounded us with guns,
"Who are you? He asked.
"Us? We came to apply for job o, my pal replied and he nodded.

"Take them inside! They commanded but two of my friends were bleeding; one on the leg and the other on his hand.
"Who else knows you're here? The boss asked when we got inside.

"Just us, I replied.
"How did you know this place? The boss asked.

"Well we came to buy something and we decided to look around, I replied and he slapped me.
"Boss, I think they passed through Tolu. We found him in the car dead, a guy reported.

"Tolu was here? What was he doing here when I asked him not to show his face here? The boss asked.
"He came here last night, but you were busy with the operation, the guy replied.

"So he was the one who did it? The boss angrily asked folding his fist and released it on me.
"Take them! They are luckily I have a pressing issue to attend to, I'll get back to them, the boss said and the guys quickly lifted us as we were forced to kneel and dragged us away and locked us in a room.

I quickly tore my shirt to tie it on the wounded guys to stop the bleeding,
"I am so sorry it turned out this way, I apologized to them.
"No bother yourself at least they don carry us enter inside, the guy shot on the leg said.

"Its just a scratch though, I said tapping him when I was done tying him while the other guy attended to the one shot on the hand.
"I have to bring out the bullet, The guy said bringing out a knife.

"Bring am fast abeg I don die with pains, the wounded guy said breathing hard and my pal signalled me to hold him which I did and he removed the bullet from him and I tied the place.
The door opened after some minutes and a guy walked in and quickly closed the door behind.
"See as person dey come die o, my pal said as we sat down looking at him and he slowly came to us and stood facing the one shot on the hand.

"You don't remember me? The guy asked while my friend was just looking at him.
"You sabi am? I asked very interested and the guy shot on the hand hissed indicating they know each other.

"Ahhhh you still dey hiss? I no go bother ask how una take know but guy comot us from here, my pal said.
"Wetin carry Una come here sef? Una wan die? The guy asked.

"No time to answer, how we wan take comot? I asked.
"Some guys dey weak sha and the boss head don dey knock because his babe take overdose and he dey fear, the guy replied and I held him.

"Love? Is it Love? I asked and he nodded.
"You sabi am? He asked.

"Take us to her please, I replied and he took my hands from his body.
'E be like you don dey craze, he said and I paced around.

"Just give us gun and open door for us. Forget the rest we go handle am, the one shot on the hand said and he looked at us carefully and left the room without saying anything to us.

I can't tell how long we stayed there but we began to hear gun shots outside and we stood up confused.
"See rapture don come o, my friend said as we could not see the outside and the door opened which the guy who earlier talked to us walked in with guns and threw it on us.
"Wetin the happen? The one shot on the leg asked while I checked the bullets.

"Police and army o, the guy replied.
"Take me to Love please, I said holding him and he put his hand in his pocket and gave us nose masks.

"Use am disguise small since the guys eyes don red. Una go fit manage? He asked the ones wounded and they nodded And that was how we left the room.
The guys didn't bother to look at us because there is fire on the mountain, but the few who noticed we used our hands on them while the insider took us to the clinic they had and I brought down whoever I saw there with my eyes red and rushed in to see Love lying down on the bed there.

"Love, Love! I shouted shaking her and one of my friend checked if she was still alive.
"She still dey breathe small, He said and the one who was checking out for us signalled us that someone Was coming and we began to shoot.
It was the boss who was coming for her with some guys but since we opened fire he escaped.

At a point we didn't hear gun sounds anymore and I carried Love outside as we dropped our guns behind and behaved as good guys.
"Stop there! An army man shouted on us and my friends raised their hands up and a police man recognized us.
"What are you doing here? Are you with them? He asked us.

"We cant be with them and still report. We had to risk it to save a friend because we thought you didn't believe us. Please help her I beg you, and the boss he escaped, I replied.
"Where? The army man shouted and ran in with some men and the police led us to the car so Love can be rushed to the hospital.
