AN EVENING WITH EVA EP 16

Sean woke up startled. He was sweating profusely despite the intensity at which the air condition was blowing. He just had a nightmare. Was it? He saw himself chopping off a young man’s body limb by limb. Each time the sharp machete made contact with the dead flesh, little spurts of blood were deposited on his face. The dead man was screaming for help and begging for pity as Sean cut him mercilessly. Ignoring the man’s pleas, he took the huge pieces of meat with the bones dangling on one side and approached the den in the Fortress. The sight of the dogs alone brought fright to him. The dogs were huge and menacingly wild. No one in his complete senses dared to enter the fortress when the dogs were not leashed or caged. There were three Rottweilers, two German Shepherds, one Husky, and one Wolf dog Hybrid. Ferocious dogs that were usually made to go very hungry before they were fed. The last time they ate was the evening before. And they were quite hungry, and ready to pounce. As Sean approached they began to bark in their den, the Rottweilers spewing huge amounts of saliva from their mouths. Sean stood a few meters away from the Den. Even though the cage was locked tight, he still did not want to risk taking any chances. He began to throw the pieces of flesh into the cage. Some got in. Some did not. In the demented rush for the meat, the Wolf Dog Hybrid forced the cage open. It came after Sean and the remaining pieces of flesh he had with him. Sean ran for dear life. He ran as fast and as swift as his legs could carry him. But Sean was not fast enough. The Wolf Dog pursued him and caught up with him. It pounced on him, sinking its teeth in Sean’s right arm which he used as a shield to cover his face. He screamed.
Sean woke up.
He was sweating. He turned on the bedside lamp, partially illuminating the room and casting a small shadow on the walls. He looked up at the wall clock. 3:26am. He could not go back to sleep. He was haunted by the dogs. He got up from his bed and opened a door to his left. He entered the bathroom and saw a large brown bucket stained with a reddish liquid. He moved closer to inspect the bucket. He was shocked at what he saw inside. There was a human head soaked in a pool of blood. His heart raced. So it was not a dream after all. He suddenly wished it was all a dream. He remembered all that happened the evening before. He recalled how Sophia had wasted the life of a promising young man just to prove a point. A ridiculous point. What in the world did they want with him anyway? He stopped starring at the bucket and face the small rectangular mirror on the wall by the sink. He washed his face and looked up at his reflection. He was looking very haggard. He hadn’t shaved in days and looked very unkempt. He made a mental note to ask for a clipper in the morning.
Sean got back to his room. He switched on the lights and looked around. He had previously scrubbed the tiled floors clean. The walls still had a little blood stain. That could be ignored, he told himself. He opened the drawer attached to his bedside table, pulling out a file. The first few pages contained a summary of his whole life and the past 4 months were summarized in more detail. He skipped that part and concentrated on the second module of the file. This contained a list of things he was supposed to do and a timeline for the completion of the tasks. He was expected of produce a 90% accuracy at the least.
There was a 3 months special online course on Cybersystems and Cyberspace. After that, 2 months of Router Hacking and Password Decryption. He had another four days of Wireless Systems, Radio Configuration and Cloud Redirection. His performance after all these would determine if they would continue with him to the advanced stage or discharge him. He did not like how that sounded. ‘Discharge’. He had a feeling that he would not be let go so easily. He feared the worst. He closed the file and thought about his girlfriend in Canada. He had not spoken to her in over a week. He missed her. He missed his mother. He knew there were agents at her very doorstep and that really worried him.
He heaved a huge sigh. He was going to get to the bottom of this. No matter what it would take, he was not going to give up until he got to the end of the line.
He closed his eyes and drifted into dreamland.
Tawo was furious. He was angry at himself and at the whole team. He was raging and venting his anger at anyone who as much as spoke a word to him. He sat on his swivel chair swaying left and right, both hands on his forehead. He was rubbing his temple and trying to find out where everything went wrong.
“Sir, there is…” Agent Ope started but stopped when he saw the bloody look of anger in his superior’s eyes
“You have 15 seconds to say what you wanted to blurt. If I am not impressed, I will have you monitoring the CCTV at Park ‘N’ Shop by tomorrow.” Tawo threatened.
The Agent hesitated for a few seconds. He kept quiet. He knew that if he still did not speak, the same fate awaited him. He decided to say what he wanted to and hope that it impressed his Boss.
“Sir, upon gruesome scrutiny of the playback tapes of the bugging operation, I noticed a blind spot. We overlooked that little glitch but upon proper inspection, I noticed that it was actually not a glitch.” Agent Ope said.
“You’ve got my attention. Go on.” Tawo said.
“There was a point that the target was stationary for about 90 seconds. That was our blind spot. I decided to check it out. I was able to override one of the surveillance cameras around the Redemption Camp. The nearest camera was a CAM70-Extreme. I zoomed in on it and adjusted the capture area.” Ope said, getting up and moving to the large touch screen monitor on the wall.
“This is where the target was blinking for 90 seconds,” He said touching a portion of the map. The touched portion grew large filling the whole screen. He continued.
“From here onwards for about 500 meters, there was no traffic and there are no fuel stations, restaurants, shops, fast foods or anything to make him stop. He was constantly on the move.” He touched a smaller portion of the now expanded map.
“This is the most acute angle that the camera could pick. I will rewind the footage of the camera at this point of the map sir.” Ope said.
He pressed a button on the screen and a video footage appeared in very slow motion, at the exact point the mechanic came out from. It showed the Mechanic coming out of a small hut which served as his workshop, crossing the road and going left. There was nothing after that. Exactly 90 secons later, the Black Honda zoomed past.
“Impressive Ope” Tawo asserted a smile on his lips.
“Thank you sir. The Colonel is very smart. He had the Mechanic come meet him at the exact spot where he knew that he would not be captured by the cameras. He deliberately put this Mechanic on the spot. We have no records against the young lad sir. I am sure he knew that. We can’t make him talk. It seems he is going to win with this one.” Ope concluded.
Tawo was thinking. His fingers were playing with small beard. As the video replayed, something caught his eye.
“Stop that. Yes. Start the footage all over. And pause it on 03mins:14secs” Tawo ordered.
Ope obeyed. They watched the video all over again. From the beginning, cars were passing. At 01mins: 16secs, the Mechanic crossed the road and started walking left. He was not visible anymore. At 02mins:55secs, they watched as the Black Honda zoomed past. Nothing happened for the next 17 seconds. Two seconds later, Tawo half screamed, “Pause Now!”.
There was a Danfo in the footage, pause as it was accelerating.
“That Danfo is just accelerating. Zoom in on the front passenger seat.” Tawo barked
Ope did that. A blurred face with a white background.
“Now take that that image and move it to the facial ID defragmenter. “ Tawo commanded.
Ope pressed a button on the screen, used the tip his fingers to trace the edges of the image and pressed another button. With his two thumbs, he flipped the traced image in one very swift fast motion onto the next screen by his right.
“Image received. Scanning and Defragmentation in progress” came a computer voice from the screen.
They waited 12 seconds and then an image appeared before them.
It was The Colonel in his white linen,
Tawo smiled.
“Get me that bus registration plates.” He said to Ope.
“Yes sir.”
Ope zoomed in on the registration plates, defragmented it and printed it out.
“Done sir.” Ope said.
“Good.” Tawo replied getting the printed sheet from him.
He pressed a button on his table. His voice went into loud speaker mode in another office on the previous floor below them. There were eight trained search agents in that room. Give them a tiny detail (a name or a place or a phone number) and they would search out and deliver every single information regarding it. They had access to any electronic device that had access to the internet or used a database. They were the best.
“Bee Hive. This is Super-Agent Tawo. I want all routes taken by commercial van with registration plates BZ739FST between the hours of 6:30 and 7:30. You have 15 minutes.”
He pushed back his chair, put his legs on his table one on top of the other. He put his two hands behind his head and closed his eyes.
“I am going to nail this bastard.” He said to himself.
To be continued…

MERCY JOHNSON "AFTER 3 KIDS IN 3 YEARS I NEED A BREAK

Curvy cum busty Nollywood actress, Mercy Johnson-Okojie, has revealed how much it was worth to create time out of her extremely busy career schedule to go on holiday with her husband in the United States for approximately three weeks. Shortly after her return to her home country, the pretty mother of three spoke to Potpourri on the importance of taking time out to go on vacations.
“We went to spend time together, three kids, three years, its fun; it’s awesome. In marriage, it’s necessary to have time to reminisce, plan and talk” she said excitedly
Responding to why she’s already working barely a week after her return from the United States with her husband, she responded; “It’s not about the money, as a person I combine my marriage, my kids, my work together. I’ve done that for the past five years. My kids are on holidays now, so it’s a better time for me to work before they get back to school; it’s actually a better timing. Like I always say, it’s not about the money but the passion I have for my work.”

TARASHA CHAPTER 14 PART 7

+++
Sylvester dropped the landline receiver after speaking with Agent Dakolo, he sat back into his seat, trying to decide whether to attend to the Agent's request first or to follow after Henry. He chose the latter and got up from his seat. He picked up his phone from the table and proceeded out of the office.
Two minutes later, he was seated in the visitor's seat behind Henry's table. Henry wasn't paying much attention to him but was focused on his work on the laptop.
'Here's what I wanted to show you' Henry quickly handed a paper to Sylvester and turned back to his laptop. 'How was the interview? What position did she apply for?' Henry asked.
'There was no interview' Sylvester answered without taking a look at the paper he was handed. 'She only came to submit her credentials in person'
'I see' Henry said in a low voice, acting less interested.
'You thought I invited her over for an interview?'
'Yes, of course. You are the Boss here and you don't need my permission to interview anybody' Henry answered with a slight chuckle.
'But we already agreed to work with those available and not to take in anyone else for now. I wouldn't go against our agreement'
Henry paused and looked up, he fastened his eyes on Sylvester's face. 'I didn't suggest that in anyway' He said and turned his face back to the laptop. 'Oh! You thought that was the reason I didn't agree to see her?'
'What else could be the reason?'
'I wasn't aware of the interview before, neither do I know the position the interview is for so I didn't think I had any business to do with her' Henry answered, keeping a light smile on his face.
Sylvester remained quiet for a while, staring at Henry's face. He had thought Henry was angry but Henry's demeanor and words have proved him wrong.
'So what do you ...' Henry paused on seeing that Sylvester had not checked the paper given to him. 'Come on, read what's there'
Sylvester picked the paper and scanned briefly through it. 'When did you start working on this?'
'It wasn't my work, Dayo did it' Henry replied. Dayo was the new employee that was taken in the week before.
'It looks good but we have to find how crackable these codes are' Sylvester commented.
'That's why I was in your office then, I wanted to check through your history log but I've been able to check it from here'
'So, are they crackable?'
'Yes, it's even made up of very easy combinations'
'Does that make it usable or not?'
'It's not usable. It would be easily cracked by the opposition'
Sylvester folded the paper and dropped it on the table. 'Agent Dakolo called some minutes ago, he'll be here in the afternoon to get a report on all that we've been doing concerning the breach we've been experiencing'
'Okay, I've been expecting him to ask for it. I prepared a report already and he doesn't even need to come here, we could mail it to him' Henry said.
'I think he'll also like to get some explanations, that's why he wants to come physically' Sylvester put in.
'No problem, we'll be ready for him'
'So what do we do now with Mr Dayo's piece?' Sylvester asked as he got up from the chair, ready to leave for his office.
'We'll just keep it and keep working, we need something deeper' Henry tapped the enter key on her laptop keyboard in a loud manner and then relaxed into his seat, signifying that he was through with what he was doing. He stared up at Sylvester's face. 'You know we are trying to entrap this group, so we have to be wiser than they are. We cannot afford to use simple keys and scripts in tackling them, that'll be making mockery of ourselves'
'Alright then' Sylvester shrugged and turned to leave.

**Kabakawa, Batagarawa Katsina, Katsina State. **
After lodging in an hotel for two days, the team finally moved into the rented apartment for which they had paid the rent fee for a year. The house wasn't too expensive but it was big enough to contain all of them. It was already furnished to their taste before they moved in.
They had chosen a flat with three bedrooms in the two storey building house with a total of six flats. Theirs was located by the left side on the middle floor. Tarasha had carefully chosen an apartment for them in an open area this time, it would reduce the rate of unnecessary suspicions. But they also had to be extra careful and watchful.
It was Monday morning and work had begun already. Cole was seated behind a table, composing an email on his laptop to inform the Ata's foundation of their team's arrival into the country. Benny was in one of the rooms where he and Cole had chosen for themselves, arranging the new arms and ammunitions into the wardrobe. He neatly arranged the various sizes of bullets and sealed explosives in a section. He arranged the pistols in another section and long guns in another. The last section was used to store his clothes and Cole's.
Aisha was also in her room, setting the place in the order she wanted. She hissed on seeing the little bag of clothes which she brought to the place. Although the bag was actually the biggest bag amongst all bags of clothes the team had brought, she still thought it to be small. Their kind of job would not satisfy her desire to always take her best clothes around town.
She hissed again as she saw herself in the mirror on bending to arrange the makeup kits placed in front of the mirror. What did she even need the clothes for now that her hair was gone? She looked like a man, she thought. She gave a brief mockery laugh at herself as she rubbed her palms on the head. She then turned back to pick a small case which contained more makeup kits. That wasn't for her but for the team, the team would frequently need to change their appearances on this operation. Another small bag was lying beside the case, it contained camouflage materials like artificial beards, masks, wigs and even skinlike gloves.
Benny walked into the living room after he was done with arranging the tools, he met Cole already closing his laptop.
'Have you finished typing the email?' He asked as he moved to sit on the couch.
'Yes, we'll see it when we come back from the boutique' Cole answered, standing up with his closed laptop in his hand.
'You want us to go now?' Benny seemed not too comfortable with the idea.
'Yes, what else should we do now?'
'Why don't you send the email now and let's see their reply, they may probably engage you in a chat' Benny tried to convince Cole.
'I've sent the mail to the Boss first for vetting, until she replies us we cannot forward it to the foundation' Cole responded with a wry look on his face. 'Dust your lazy ass and let's go out to get the clothes now. I'll go get Aisha.' With that Cole walked away, leaving Benny who remained on the seat tiredly. For Benny, it was always fun to get new clothes but this one was different, the clothes would have to be disposed off at the end of the operation.

**Abuja**
2pm
'You went this far?' Dakolo stared Henry in the face as he read the report provided to him. 'Even the US CCTV officials have not discovered up to this, nice job' he commended cheerfully jamming his palms together.
'Thank you sir' Henry smiled.
'The only thing that looks similar in this their report is...' Dakolo began but stopped abruptly. He bent to bring out the report from the US CCTV from his small brief case which was placed by the leg of the chair he was seated. He placed the binded four pages report on Henry's table. Sylvester was the first to pick up the report and open it.
Dakolo opened back Henry's report which was still in his hands. He began to flip the pages until he got to the last. 'Here' he said, pointing a particular area on the page. 'This code looks similar to theirs'
Henry bent forward to look at where Dakolo was pointing. Dakolo handed it over to him to have a better view.
" BN 10354
' Encrypt XL
<< -- t.a.r-- n.e.f -- >>
Run script = enter '
>>"
That was one of the most mysterious encryption code Henry had ever come across. He had never seen the key words anywhere else before and since he discovered the script, he not been able to decrypt it.
Dakolo collected the report Sylvester was holding and opened to the second page. 'Here ' he pointed another area to for Henry to look at. The encryption script Henry saw in the US report was similar to the one in his report.
"BN 20679
'Encrypt XL
<< -- s.e.r--- n.e.f -- >>
Run script = enter '
>>"
'What??' Henry's lips vibrated as he fixed his eyes on the code, looking slightly baffled. He took his eyes off to Dakolo face. 'The assassin group is larger than we thought, it's a worldwide organization'
Dakolo licked his lips slowly and silently as he watched Henry fix his eyes again to the report.
'Can I...' Sylvester who was anxious to see the correlation stretched forth his hand impatiently to collect the reports from Henry.
'So now that we know that we are dealing with a worldwide assassin group, we have to up our game' Dakolo finally spoke. 'Your engineers have to be informed about what they are dealing with. And I think the corporation has to establish a strong connection with the US corporation'
'Wow! I wasn't aware that there have been breaches in the CCTV operations in the US too' Henry spoke in low tones, relaxing his back in the seat.
'There have been' Dakolo replied him, tapping a finger on the table as he stared into the air and inhaled. 'The breaks always comes during the period of assassinations just like ours'
'Hmm... Same strategies, same codes' Henry said thoughtfully.
Dakolo stared at Henry's face for a moment. 'Henry E.G, I need to ask you some questions' Dakolo stated after a brief moment of silence.
Henry sat upright and adjusted himself to pay attention, surprised at the Agent's sudden change of tone. 'What questions sir?'
'You were kidnapped recently' Dakolo paused and stared at Henry's face, noticing a change. It was obvious to him that Henry wasn't comfortable with the new subject.
'Yes sir' Henry confirmed reluctantly.
'It happened after you got a job from the late Chief Jubril Lawal?' Dakolo continued, making sure he maintained eye contact with Henry. Henry noticed this and decided to try as much as possible to hide his expressions, else the Agent would extract every information from him even if he tried to lie.
'Yes, I don't know if the job was for Chief Jubril but it was brought to us by one of his workers' Henry answered.
'Chief Jubril sent him' Sylvester quickly put in.
Dakolo took a glance at Sylvester and fixed his eyes back to Henry's face. 'Let's talk about your abduction first. It lasted for less than a day. How did you escape?'
'I was told that they left us to go after they had a disagreement amongst themselves' Henry replied.
'You were told?'
'Yes, I was knocked out. I only opened my eyes after we've moved far away from there'
'You and your girlfriend?'
'No, but a very close lady friend'
'Well, I don't need to go into details of how you were abducted that day. I know that you have been questioned about that already.' Dakolo adjusted to a more comfortable seating position and placed his chin on his right fist. 'You mentioned during your interrogation with the police that your suspect was Dare, Chief Jubril's son?'
'Yes' Henry confirmed with a nod.
'But you didn't mention to me that you've seen him recently' Dakolo frowned.
'Sir, we've not really been able to discuss personal matters since you came into town'
'That's true.' Dakolo paused and turned to Sylvester who was already clearing his throat to announce his desire to leave since he felt he wasn't concerned with the questioning.
'Mr Sylvester' Dakolo called with a chuckle. 'You have to wait, I also have some questions for you too.' Sylvester nodded in reply and comported himself. Dakolo turned back to Henry.
'Let's push the personal matters aside for now' Dakolo continued with Henry. 'Did you ever think that the kidnap could be related to the job brought by the late Chief's PA?'
'No' Henry replied sharply after narrowing his eyes thoughtfully.
'You don't think so?'
'Yes, I don't' Henry shook his head in negative to emphasize. He thought again briefly. Omotara was the suspect behind the number he was investigating, so was it really possible that she had planned their kidnap.
'So you insist that it could have only been Dare Lawal?' Dakolo pressed. 'Wait' he cut in before Henry could speak. 'What was the result of your investigation?'
Henry's heartbeat increased thrice in speed. The question he was scared of have been finally asked. Was he now going to turn Omotara in? Knowing fully well that Agent Dakolo would not stop until he fishes out who Alexander Evelyn really was and probably even associate her with the Chief's assassination which Henry believed Omotara was innocent about.
