It was 9’O clock and the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) has started their normal welcome tone before the news at 9pm. A man dressed in agbada and with glasses almost dropping from his eyes arranged papers as the instrumental went along side another lady with a fair look settling for the broadcast.

ASP Ochuko had ran to his study to get the pictures he had printed out of the deceased and compared them with those displayed on the screen for the missing Governor’s son. Lo and behold it was a one hundred percent match.
God! He shouted.
This is getting messy. He was no longer interested in subsequent headlines and details as he started pacing around his sitting room. He continued pacing as his phone rang. Looking at the screen it was Sergeant Gods Power.
Hello. ASP Ochuko muttered.
Sure Sir. Sergeant responded.
Easy. ASP Ochuko replied softly.
Sir did you just listen to the news? He asked inquisitively.
I did. See you at the station latest 7am tomorrow and hope that boy is still behind those bars? He asked.
Yes sir. Sergeant God’spower responded.
Good. Good. Good. See you tomorrow.
ASP Ochuko said and ended the call. Strolling to his standing freezer he got a bottle of Goldberg and settled for it as he lit a stick of cigarettes he took from his chest pockets. Popping up smoke he said.
