Anoder person call am, Honourable say, “I’m not in my office. I decided to go out with a cab for security reasons. Meet my P.A., he will take you to my Secretary. Tell her to give you N250,000 for lunch.”

Wen we reach one big house like dat for Apapa road, Honourable say may I drop am for di gate. E come down and say make I drive forward small and park. E say make I give am my phone number, I give am.

One hour pass, two hour, three hour – no sign. I come dey hear some kind noise, as I say make I come down go see wetin dey happen, na im Honourable call me. E say make I no worry, dem go soon finish di meeting. I say no troublem.

As we dey go back to Ikeja, na im Honourable dey tell somebody for phone say, “Don’t mind the rogue. He calls himself senator. He thought he's smart. We have handed him and his cohorts over to the police.
“Just because he is a senator of the Federal Republic, he thought he and his three boys could use up the party’s money meant for the elections and caused my party to lose in many areas of the state. Imagine a whole me asking him simple question how he spent the N300m given to him, and his boys started shooting gun. Of course, I had to show them I was not elected state chairman of the party for noting.”
Blood just dry for my body. I manage control mysef go drop Honourable for im office for Ikeja, e balance me N30,000. I fall down for ground patapata tank am.
