the adventures of copper john episode…by felnino prt7&8

​Part 7

John, TJ and Tomiwa sat under a tree not far from

the palace, the only news john wanted to hear was

that the king was dead so that he could carry out his

plan to perfection, the hunter had left them and

gone back to his home, he seemed less bothered

than they were, maybe he wanted something like

that, his daughter getting married to a king, TJ

looked at John in surprise, he had never seen him

act with so much determination, Joy had surely had

a lot of impact on him, Tomiwa mind had wandered

away, he was thinking of his father, his mother and

his little sisters, though he had not informed them

of his decision to come to Lagos two days ago, he

just hoped they have not tried dialing his handset

yet, his mind was brought back to reality when he

saw a guard running towards their direction, John

was battle ready, if the guard was coming for him,

he was going to use his combat moves now, the

guard ignored them and branched to the house

behind them, the guard seemed worried as he

knocked on the chiefs door, the chief came out

almost immediately as if he had been expecting

him, John looked back to see what was going on

between them, he heard the guard say something

like ‘the Igwe is dead’ then the chief reacting to

what he had said as if he was in trouble, John’s

greatest news had been confirmed, his plot had

succeeded, the Igwe was dead, he signaled to TJ and

Tomiwa who also knew what was going on, they had

to execute their plan

now……………………………………………. The hunter

entered his house singing a joyful song, when his

wife saw him alone she asked of their daughter

Chinelo, he then went on to explain what happened

to his wife, as soon as he finished narrating the

story she started dancing and singing, they both

sang and danced together, their dream had come

true, they were now officially In-Laws with the most

influential man in town, they were now In-Laws

with the king……………………………………. It was 9 pm,

Nelson was in his sitting room with his wife, he was

worried, his friend had not come to his house and

his phone number still switched off, he had to act

fast, he feared the worst, something might had

happened to his friend, maybe he was not lost but

had fallen victim to the ruthless kidnappers, he

stood up and left his wife in the sitting room, he

had to go to bed because he had the feeling that

tomorrow was going to be a long

day…………………………………………………………….. Kemi

was having the time of her life, she was in another

man’s bed, her husband had travelled to Eungu in

search of her stepson, she hissed at the thought of

it, she couldn’t care less if John was Dead but she

was glad her husband was gone because now she

would have the chance to sleep about with other

men, she smiled as her concubine came out of the

bathroom and smiled at her, she knew what the

smile meant, he was ready for round

two……………………………………………….. Chinelo was in

tears as she realized that she had made a mistake,

her husband was dead and for all she cared she

could be pregnant for him, her dreams only lasted

for a few hours as it had vanished from her face

like a smoke, she had different thoughts, what

would she tell her parents, what if the new king

would not want her, suddenly a guard grabbed her

arm, she looked up at his face and recognized him

instantly, it was one of those corpers, we have to

leave here now TJ said to Chinelo, instead of

following him, she placed her head on the late

King’s chest and wept, TJ had to leave, he had tried

his best………………………………………………………… Joy

was sitting on her bed when a guard barged into her

room, she recognized him instantly, it was John, the

love of her life, she almost wept as they kissed each

other, John said they had to leave quick, Tomiwa

had rescued Becky, TJ had gone to rescue Chinelo,

they had to meet them at the rendez vous point,

they ran through the palace which was now in

disorder as everybody was weeping for the king,

they ran through the back door and towards a tree,

John could see Tomiwa, Becky and TJ but Chinelo

was not with them, he asked TJ what went wrong, TJ

replied and said she does not want to leave her new

husband, they ran to the main road, they didn’t

know where they were heading to, but they kept

running, suddenly John remembered the place, it

was the road to his dad’s friends house, Mr Nelson,

he had visited there twice, Mr Nelson though always

came to check up on him at least once every

month, this way everybody John said to them, they

didn’t know where they were going but they had all

learned to trust John’s decision, he ran towards the

black gate and knocked it furiously, a gate man

opened the gate, he recognized John, Oga mi wetin

happen now? He asked John they pushed him out of

the way, entered the compound and locked the gate

behind them, Nelson ran out of his house wearing

pyjamas, he thought it was his friend Mr Adeboye,

but it was someone he was even more glad to see,

he was so happy, John was alive John was so happy

to see his father’s friend, he ran towards him and

hugged him, the rest of them were relieved to be

behind the safety of a gate, TJ knew Mr Nelson, he

always came around to check on them and give

them money and foodstuff, TJ went closer to him

and greeted him, Mr Nelson hugged TJ and John

together, he looked over their shoulder and noticed

two girls and a guy came with John and TJ, he

wondered why John and TJ were dressed in the

palace guards clothes, as if John was reading his

mind, he introduced his friends to Uncle Nelson, as

he usually calls him , Nelson asked them into his

house, only a mad man would say no, Becky and

Tomiwa wondered where John knew this man from,

John had been a blessing to their journey, they

didn’t hesitate to move towards the house, at least

this man seemed nice enough to be a kidnapper or

a wife snatching king, they all followed him into the

house, Nelson immediately ordered his house help

to prepare food for 5 people, John greeted Nelson’s

wife who was surprised to see strange faces in their

house, she saw John and immediately went to hug

him, she thought he was dead, John was no visitor,

he went into the kitchen and brought out 5 bottles

of water from the fridge, and took 5 cups from the

dining table, he handed his friends four bottled

water and four cups and he poured himself some

water, and gulped other down, it was as if the water

had come from God’s personal pool, they sat down

in the sitting room and watched TV, they thought

they would never watch TV again, John looked at

Joy, he hoped that king had not touched her, cause

if he did? he wouldn’t mind killing him the second

time, his mind came back to life when a plate of

rice and turkey was placed before him, he began to

dig in without hesitation, within seven minutes the

mount Everest placed before him had become Jos

plateau, after resting for five minutes he went to

Mr Nelson and explained their adventure to him,

but he didn’t mention what the mermaid gave him

or that he poisoned the king in his story, Nelson

was astonished by his story, even people stronger

than them did not escape alive, Nelson showed

them to the two guest rooms, they could choose

whichever room they wanted, they all moved up to

the rooms, TJ and Tomiwa stayed in one while the

girls went to the other One, as John wanted to go to

the room, Nelson called him back, he had

something to tell him 

Part 8
John was troubled by what Nelson just told him, he

went back to the sitting room and sat on the couch,

could his father had been kidnapped by those

wicked men? He asked himself, he went to the

fridge to get a bottle of water, but this time he

sipped it slowly instead of gulping it like a dragon

that wants to put out It’s fire, countless thoughts

occupied his mind, Joy sat beside him and held his

hands, she had listened to their conversation, she

felt sorry for John, she had lost both her parents a

few years ago in a car crash, but she had gotten

over it, she wouldn’t want him to lose his father,

she looked at his face and tried to console him, he

looked into her eyes and his heart melted, he

almost smiled, he then held her head and placed it

on his chest, 10 minutes later, John looked at Joy

any saw that she had slept off, he stood up and

carried her to the room where Becky was, he

placed her on the bed gently and kissed her, he

went to the room where the guys were and he lied

down on the spare bed, he was deep in thought

until 1 pm when nature came and closed his

eyes………………………………………………………… Kemi

woke up with a smile on her face, her concubine

had satisfied her more than her husband ever did,

she even wondered maybe that was the reason why

John’s mother left, maybe he could not satisfy her

in bed and she left for that reason, wise woman,

Kemi thought to herself, she had made the right

choice, but she herself won’t leave the house for

her husband, when he comes back with John, that is

even if the useless boy was found alive, she would

send an assassin to take care of them, her

concubine was still sleeping, she didn’t blame him,

he had worked like a bull, she stood up and wore

her cloth, she carried her hand bag and left his

house, she drove back to her husband’s house as

she had to go to work that morning

…………………………………………………… The corpers

woke up early except John, he had woken up

around 8:30 am, he stood up and walked towards

the bathroom, he brushed his teeth and had his

bath, he saw a new T-shirt and a pair of jeans on the

bed, he didn’t need to ask Google before he knew it

was for him, he was happy he was not going to wear

the smelly palace guard clothes again, he went out

of the room and walked towards the dining room,

there they were eating breakfast, he greeted them

before sitting down with them at the dining table,

the house help brought his own breakfast of moin –

moin and pap and placed it before him, he ate

silently without saying a word, when they had

finished eating, Nelson announced to them that a

police pickup was waiting outside to take four of

them home as John would go later because he had

some important issues to attend to, John then

interfered, he told them what happened to his

father, they all felt sorry for him and hoped that his

father was not in the hands of the kidnappers,

Tomiwa and Becky were inside the police pickup,

Joy and TJ had refused to go, Joy said she was going

to Nelson’s place with him until he was ready to go,

he was the only person she trusted, TJ was not

going to leave his friend in this state of mind, he

called his father using Nelson’s phone, it was his

father’s assistant that picked the phone, his father

was out of the country, he told the assistant to tell

him that he would be spending a few more days in

Enugu, the police pickup left on the journey to

Lagos carrying only Tomiwa and Becky, John wished

them safe journey …………………………………………………

The hunter and his wife wore their best clothes and

began their journey to the palace, they were going

to meet their new son-in-law.

Part 3

Nelson received an expected call, one of the chiefs

called to inform him that the king was dead and the

police was needed to make an investigation and

state the cause of death, he knew the king was dead

already because John had told him so, he was

dressed in his police uniform already, he asked

John and his friends to excuse him, he had to get to

the king’s palace, he went out of the house and he

and his driver set out in his Toyota Prado SUV, John

was a little bit scared, it just occured to him that if

he was identified as the one who poisoned the king

he might be charged to court for murder, it would

be a case that he could not win, it would be John vs

the entire community, ………………The hunter and

his wife were close to the palace, they had almost

gotten there when they heard people wailing, the

hunter feared that the king was dead, and his fear

was confirmed when a girl told him that the king

had died the previous night, after hearing this, his

wife Chinyere immediately sat on the ground and

stared wailing, their son in law was dead, that

hunter shouted on his wife to get up from the

ground immediately, they stormed towards the

palace and were about to enter the palace when

two men who looked like balotelli stood in their in

their way one of them asked where they were

heading and told them to state their business, the

hunter narrated their reason for being there, the

guard told him that the king was dead, but he still

allowed them to enter, the hunter and his wife

were inside the palace, they were lucky to find

Chinelo easily, Chinelo was wailing and her mother

quickly went to console her, Chinelo told them Of

she and the late king’s love affair, they exclaimed

after hearing what their daughter Said, they would

be in big trouble if their daughter ever got

pregnant, the hunter asked about John and the

female corpers from Chinelo, she told him that she

had not seen John or any of the female corpers but

TJ had tried to come and rescue her, the hunter

shook his head in self pity, the situation had turned


arrived at the palace with his officers who were

specialized in such matters, they ordered that no

member of the palace should leave, the specialist

examined the king’s corpse, they came up with a

result within 30 minutes , they didn’t need to ask ifa

before they knew he was poisoned, they told

Nelson their findings, he announced to the palace

that their king was poisoned, the people in the

palace shouted ahh! Nelson’s men began their work,

they started first by interrogating the palace cooks,

they separated the people who prepared and

served his food, Nelson personally went to

interrogate Chinelo, he was told the king had died

in her room, he saw that she was in a sober mood,

he told her to calm down, all he was going to do was

to ask her some questions, she nodded her head in

approval, he started by asking her what the king was

doing before he died, she answered shyly and told

him that they had just finished making love, when

he suddenly fell down and died, he asked her if the

king had forced her to have s*x, no she replied, she

had done it willingly, he asked her if she was happy

to have been in the palace before the king died, she

said yes, Nelson examined her carefully, with his

psychological instinct, he knew she was not lying,

she looked young and harmless but then he

reminded himself that looks could be deceiving, he

asked her how old she was, she said she was 16

years old, Jesus! Nelson said within his mind, she

was underage, the king had definitely committed

child abuse, but he couldn’t do anything about it

even if the king was alive, the king had authority

over such matters, he stood up and went out of her

room, he placed her under the low priority suspect

level, Sir, one of Nelson’s men called him, he told

him his attention was needed in the kitchen, when

he got there another officer told him that they had

tested the food that the king had eaten the

previous night, it contained some toxic substances

which they believed to be poison, Nelson told the

chiefs about their discovery, he noticed that one of

the chiefs, chief Doherty aka chief Dotmann was not

present, he asked about him and he was told that

chief Dotmann had travelled to Lagos two days ago,

Nelson ordered that his men should round up all

the cooks and take them to the police station for

serious questioning, Nelson left the palace and

went to town to buy some more clothes for John

and his friends, as his driver was about to drive his

car into his compound, he received a call from one

of his men, his man informed him that after

torturing the cooks, one of them confessed to have

poisoned the king’s food, Nelson went into his

house and told John that they had found the person

who poisoned the king, John was relieved when he

heard what Nelson said, maybe he was not the one

who was responsible for the king’s death, he was

glad someone else had also wanted the king dead,

but one thing he didn’t know was why
