​Part 4

Their hearts saddened as he stepped out of the

bush pointing his gun at them, they recognized him

instantly, he was one of Bison’s men, he made a

whistling sound and two other men came out

holding swords, make una no even try run or else I

go shoot una leg comot for una body, the man said

in a deadly serious tone, na una go dey allow make

Bison para for us abi? una own don finish today, he

continued, oya in a straight line the second man

ordered harshly, they dared not disobey men with

swords and guns, ironically the lined up according to

their height with Becky in front followed by Joy

then John was behind her after him was Tomiwa

then TJ was the last on the queue being the tallest,

two men stood behind them while the other one

who was holding the gun lead the

way……………………….. Thousands of kilometers away,

Mr Adeboye was in his sitting room sipping his red

wine from his glass cup, he was a little worried

because his only son, John was expected from

Enugu the previous day, he had read in the morning

paper how 9 people were found shot dead in Enugu

state, he had dialled John’s number several times

the previous day and even that morning, it was

time to take action, he could not just sit there and

do nothing, just then Kemi his wife came to the

sitting room and greeted him, she seemed less

concerned about John’s whereabouts, he knew she

disliked John but he didn’t know it was up to that

extent, he hissed as she walked away, he stood up,

picked his car keys and set

out………………………………………………… John and his

friends had walked for about 15 minutes with their

abductors, he had never killed anybody in his life

before but he could swear he was going to kill these

men with the slightest chance he had, they had

threatened their lives enough, he remembered the

fighting skills he had been taught when he was at

the NYSC camp………….. The DPO sat in his office in

deep thought, that morning was not a good one for

him because he just got a call from the

commissioner of police who threatened to sack him

if the criminals who killed those 9 people which the

TV news and newspaper broadcasted were not

arrested, he had been receiving reports of

kidnapping in the community and now was the time

to act………………………………. The man who held the

gun suddenly stopped and said ‘my guys wait I wan

piss’ , John was alert, now was his chance, he looked

back at TJ who understood him, using his hand to

signal to TJ he counted down with his fingers 5,4,3

he was ready to die trying 2,1

Who Is Jesus Christ

Bible of Jesus Christ

More About Jesus Christ

The birds in the forest flew away at the sound of

the gunshot, the first one was followed by two quick

ones, John and his friends laid motionless on the

ground, John looked up and saw a gun pointing at

his face, he raised his head more to study the

person who had a gun to his face, no shoes, Dane

gun and the man had a sack around his neck, John

concluded that he was definitely a hunter, but at

that period his name had been changed from

hunter to hero as he was their saviour, the hunter

had shot their abductors within the blink of an eye,

they stood up slowly, John looked around to check

if any of them were hurt, he didn’t know whether to

hug the hunter or prostrate for him, he had

rescued them from the hands of death, they all

thanked the hunter for his help as if he had given

them 20 million naira each, the hunter replied

them and said no worry my children, he went on to

narrate how his one of his daughters had been

kidnapped by those wicked men, TJ looked back and

saw one of the men struggling to reach for his gun,

with an anger that he had not shown for a long

time, he stamped his foot into the man’s neck,

killing him instantly, they all stared at TJ in awe,

except John, he had seen TJ portray that kind of

anger before, the last time he saw such anger was

when TJ was sent out of the examination hall by

one of his lecturers, that time TJ had reacted by

breaking both side mirrors of the lecturer’s car, he

knew TJ too well, for someone who joked most of

the time, TJ had a horrible anger no one would wish

to witness, my children where una dey come from

and where una dey go? the hunter asked them,

Tomiwa then narrated their ordeal in the hands of

the kidnappers and their underwater adventure to

the hunter who didn’t seem surprised but just

nodded his head slowly and said okay make una

follow me, the didn’t hesitate much, he had just

saved their lives and earned a little trust from

them, at least he had just saved their lives, he lead

them through a different path, they walked for 10

minutes and began to wonder where he was taking

them to, as if he was reading their minds, he told

them that he was taking them to his house, from

there he would take them to town the following

morning, he introduced himself as Okeke, he was a

hunter as they would have noticed, they walked for

another 10 minutes before arriving at the hunter’s

house, the house was made from mud, Tomiwa

couldn’t have expected better, as they approached

the house, a young boy ran out and said papa

welcome, he introduced them to his son Obinna,

where is ya mother? he asked the little boy, she has

gone to the farm, the boy replied, just then a

beautiful girl who was around 17 years old came

out from the backyard, welcome papa she said

softly, the hunter replied her and introduced them

to his first daughter Chinelo, John saw TJ focusing

on the girl like a lion focusing on its prey, TJ looked

at John who gave him a stern look, he knew John

meant hands off, the hunter ordered his daughter

to prepare food for their guest, he then lead them

into the house and asked them to sit down, 20

minutes later Chinelo walked in with their food, it

was Akpu and ogbonna soup with antelope meat,

they started devouring their food immediately it

was dropped in front of them, nothing like forming,

even Joy who had never eaten any Nigerian staple

food before eat her akpu like a pro, Tomiwa was

the first to finish his food, they washed their hands

and drank water from a bowl made from calabash,

they thanked the hunter or his hospitality and then

they relaxed, they all slept and woke up 3 hours

later, by then the hunter’s wife had returned, she

greeted them and offered them oranges, after they

had eaten the oranges they went out to join the

hunter who was by the fireside, they began to tell

tales by the fireside as the moon smiled on them,

they later went inside to sleep, the hunter’s wife

offered them 4 wrappers for them to cover

themselves, she apologized for the shortage as that

was all she had, Tomiwa, TJ and Becky grabbed

theirs quickly and went to sleep, leaving one

wrapper for John and Joy, John told Joy to use the

wrapper as he could cope without a wrapper, Joy

smiled and suggested they share the wrapper

together, she winked at him and he got the memo,

they laid side by side under the last wrapper and

John put his hand over her and smiled in his sleep,

the girl he loved was in his arms
