“CP… You mean all these things have been
happening since tow thousand and eleven?”


Inspector Jude, a fine handsome man in his
late thirsties asked standing at ease, he was
stunned. How come he was not aware till
the death of the deputy’s son and an ex-
senator.


“Jude, I want you to work together with
Detective Irabor and Officer Jakande… I
received a call through the Governor that the
president is interested in this case… All
criminals must be brought to book.”

“Alright sir.”
Inspector Jude said and went away.

*****************************************

“If you guys keep arguing, we are notgoimg
to achieve anything o”
Irabor warned.

Detective Irabor was the country’s most
respected detective. He was so smart and
deligent in his works and he had been
awarded times without number but Officer
Jakande and Inspector Jude were giving him
a tough time, both were claiming being
inferior… None wanted to be summissve to
another.


“Irabor, do you think I can work with this
dumb skull?”
Jude asked pointing at Officer
Jakande.

“Who paired me with such an arrogant
fellow like you?”
Officer Jakande shot back.

“Let’s get to business…. Are y’all with ya jotters?” Irabor asked authoritatively, both nodded. “Good” he commended.

“Jakande, you’ve been at the crime scenes for how many times now?” Irabor asked.

“Thrice. I got posted to the division three


months back.”
the other two were busy
jotting
“Can you tell us what you saw?”

“The first was when Deputy’s son was killed along some other three people…. The second
was when some five ladies were killed…. The
third was when Senator died.”

“Is there any similarities in their death?”

Jude questioned.


“Uhn… Yes… The said shadow always leave a
note behind giving enough details about his
victims… But about the death of the five
ladies…. I’m a bit skeptical about it… The first
and the last had things in common… Same
handwriting, full details, and always with a
dagger…”
He explained.


“How about the second murder?”

“…ehm… To me, it’s like someone is working using the shadow as a cover…because,…”
He
adjusted in his seat. “The handwriting…
And…and… Their death was without a
reason which the shadow wouldn’t do…”

“What other information do you have about
the said shadow?”
Irabor questioned.


“Ehm… It’s like he’s avenging the death of some people… Or probably trying to
eradicate a cult big confraternity…”

“A big..?”
Jude asked abit confused.


“Yeah… The Green…. It’s not a popular Cult
like the Eiye confraternity and others… This
said shadow exposed lots of things about
this said cult group.. Everything is well
documented here…”
He brought out some
A4 paper and handed it over to the two
officers. There was silence as both were
engrossed with the typed paper.


“We have to visit the cemetary o..”
Irabor
suggested.


“Maybe there is more than one shadow o…
Moreso, we have to be fast About whatever
we are going to do o… There are twelve
more souls to be saved.”
Jude said.

“…about those twelve souls… we have to
interview them to know their relationship
with the occultic groups… Both green and
the young green”
Jude added.


“Jude, are you blind? This guy mentioned
just seven names and he had killed one
remaining six, the other six young greens
are anonymous for now…”
Jakande attacked.

“Irabor, can you hear this fool again?”

“You guys should just stop all this poo!”

Irabor cautioned.

“See… Tell him to be careful oooo”

“We have to divide ourselves at this stage
ooo…”
Irabor stated, he rested his back and adjusted his spectacules.


“How?”
Jude and Jakande asked.


“We have two tasks ahead… One, to exhume
his body, send him for a forensic autopsy…
What killed him? We will perform a DNA test
too…. Two, we need to interview the six
supposed members of the green… Thirdly,
we need to interview those prominent
students who took part in his death protest
and his wife.”
Irabor highlighted.


“Brilliant…”
Jakande commended as they both clapped.

“Jakande, you will have to handle
interviewing the Students and his pregnant
since you know your way around here…”
He instructed, Jakande frowned.


“Jude, you will interview the…”

“Irabor…. Who do you think you are! I’m
superior here man! How dare you order me
around!!! Are you…?”

“Jude, we need to work as a team abeg! Can
you just bring down your ego?”
Jakande
cautioned. “…. Or have you forgotten the
president sent him?”
Jude felt defeated, he was the state’s local champion.


“I will see to the forensics… But Jakande, I
will need your help here… You have to follow
me to the cemetary.”

“Always ay your service.”
Jakande stood up and shunned.

February 12,2015


Three weeks later, The university. James
Chukwuka was in his office, he had been
feeling sick since the previous day and some
drugs were being administered to him
through his daughter who was a nurse. He
glanced at his watch and knew it was time
for him to take his medications. He reached
out for his medicine when he heard a
footstep, he raised his head and saw his
worst nightmare, it was the shadow.


“Gori…”
he almost jumped out of his skin. He had been feeling sick recently. Especially
since the death of his son and with the
recent death flying around, he had been
going in and out of the school clinic.


” afternoon to you, my able prof.”
Gori
adjusted his face cap as he sat on one of the
leather chair in the exquisite office room.


“Please, don’t kill me…. I don’t deserve to die such a shameful death…”
He begged.


“Do you know why I killed John Anifowose?
He was so stubborn and foolish… I spared
Yusuf because he coperated. I will ask you
just one question and I will spare you…”

“I am willing to answer any question…”
He sprang up, he let loose of his tie.


“Who is the leader of the green?”

“Uhn…”
He paused. “I don’t really know….

Some said it is Sangoyode. Some said its a
woman but that day that I stumbled on him
in the strong room, with the look of thing…
The leader is an old man.”
Gori got vexed, he needed nothing else from him, he brought out his dagger and stabbed John multiple times. He was vexed, those people were playing on his intelligence. At first, it was
Sangoyode, later, a woman and now, an old
man! He would kill them all and use their
skulls to buy pap. Iyalaya anybody.
