” When I was done with the meeting, I prepared to leave and I entered my car. After doing that, I drove off and increased my speed limit in other to get to where I am going as fast as I can. Unfortunately for me, a black car pulled right in beside me. ”
” I thought they were armed robbers so I did not stop but instead, I increased my speed and ran. I thought they wanted to collect the amount I withdrew from the ATM but I was not sure and I was not ready to stop to ask them. Their car was old and it had no number behind it. ”
” I tried going to the police station but I remembered that the police had relocated to another venue. I continued my journey while also running for my life. There was a big pothole in front of me so I reduced my speed limit but unfortunately, they took over my car and asked what I was doing to stop Nnamdi Kanu. I couldn’ t believe the type of guns they were holding. “
