It was already 6:15 pm and the weather had started to become relatively quiet, only few people were seen walking around the residential area. Gentle waited for some minutes more to see if the movement will reduce further, after waiting for several more minutes he got a message on his phone with Slimmy as the sender.
**We strike by 7pm at Fabio’s house**
“Late Fabio you mean” Gentle said softly and that moment he saw some movement adjacent to where he parked his car and immediately he stretched his green head warmer to further cover his face, even though it was dark he still doesn’t want to leave any loosed ends, he stuck his head forward and saw Fabio’s mum receiving a phone call right outside her compound. This triggered him to remember the days when Fabio used to bring him and Slimmy to his house for weekends, how his nice mum will feed them joyfully, how she always told them of how peaceful the university was during her days, how she would always advice them not to join bad gangs, how she always gives them money out of the little she had. Couple of tears escaped Gentle’s eyes as he thought about those things, he watched as the woman moved further away from where his car was parked. “It’s now or never” he said to himself as he dropped from the car and rushed towards the trunk of the car, he opened the trunk and brought out Fabio’s body, for a moment he thought Fabio had grown ten times weightier than his normal kilos but that’s what they say about dead bodies. He gently placed the body right outside the ground and went back into the car, when he made sure the woman was closer to where he parked, he ignited the car and drove off recklessly making the dust on the untaared ground cover the atmosphere, Fabio’s mum alongside some other neighbours rushed out to see why someone would be driving recklessly in such a residential area, Fabio’s mum was the first to see the body left on the ground, she immediately recognised the clothes as Fabio’s clothes which she bought for him on his last birthday. She moved closer to the body but still prayed in her mind that it should just be another person that’s lying dead, some other neighbours had also seen the body and the bold ones also approached it, as Fabio’s mum got a closer view of the body, her worst fears came crashing down at her face, she screamed……
Slimmy, Nazaretha and Kong entered into Fabio’s apartment with the keys they got from his pocket after he was being murdered. They all sat down in the house that was relatively very rough but that wasn’t their problem, all they want now is to ambush whoever the white tigers were sending down to the place, Slimmy had hopes that it would be their senior members owing to the facts that it was Oj that spoke with Fabio the other time, they were beginning to get restless when it was past 7pm and there was still no sign of any of them. At exactly 7:25pm they heard a creep at the gate and they all went into formation as they had planned. Kong went behind the refrigerator, Nazaretha to the door that led to the kitchen while Slimmy just stood right behind the entrance door. They waited for anyone coming to come straight to the door but the gates outside wouldn’t stop moving, it was like more and more people kept on coming inside the house, Slimmy decided to sneak to the large window side and he saw the white tigers in their large numbers surrounding the whole compound.
“Shit we are under attack” he announced, Nazaretha and Kong also came to the window and saw over ten members of the white tigers surrounding the compound, there’s no escaping for them here.
Swiftly Slimmy brought out his phone and dialled Gentle’s number, he picked up at the first ring.
Gentle intentionally screeched the tires of his car before driving away recklessly in order to alert the whole neighbourhood to come outside, he watched through the rear mirrors as the people including Fabio’s mum moved closer to the body he dropped, as soon as he was sure they had found the body he increased his speed to meet up with the rest at Fabio’s house, after driving for several minutes he was back in the school area and he rode straight to Fabio’s house, as he was about getting to Fabio’s house, some instincts in him told him to park far away from the targeted house as he was some strange movement right in front of the house, he parked his car and observed for some minutes and realised it was the white tiger’s bus.
“It’s a trap” he said and immediately made a u-turn and went back to the mansion.
He was almost at the mansion when his phone started ringing, he picked it up after seeing the caller ID.
“Gentle, it’s a trap” Slimmy shouted on the other end of the line.
I know bro, I just saw them also. I am going back to call for back up” Gentle replied in almost the same tone in which Slimmy spoke.
“Okay bro, let’s all hope we won’t be dead before you guys get here”
“Just hold on bro, we will be there soon”
Few minutes later after the house was surrounded by the white tigers, they began shooting randomly into the house, Slimmy, Nazaretha and Kong made sure to take cover then started shooting back, even if they were gonna die, they will have to die fight as strong men. They shot more white tigers down due to vigorous gun shooting training session they have passed through and also because the guys shooting outside had no cover but it was more like the more they killed, the higher the white tigers grow in attack, the exchange of fire went on and on, The arch angels were running out of bullets as they didn’t prepare for this kind of encounter, they kept on exchanging fires until Kong ran out of bullets, he immediately rushed to Fabio’s cabinet knowing fully well that he must have at least a gun hanging around the house, he was still searching for the gun when a bullet pierced into his right arm. Kong screamed in pain as the bullet hit him.
“Kong” Slimmy and Nazaretha screamed and rushed to where he was and then dragged him into cover.
“Just hold on bro, hold on” Slimmy tried to motivate Kong to stay strong.
The white tigers kept on shooting at them without ceasing, there was really no hope as Slimmy and Nazaretha had also ran out of bullets, they just sat there beside Kong waiting for the attackers to invade the house when they notice that they ain’t shooting back. Slimmy just sat there smiling, smiling at how cheap he was gonna die even with all the powers he had, Nazaretha saw him smiling but just looked away and brought his phone, opened the bible application on his phone. Slimmy saw him opening the bible app and gave him the S-E-R-I-O-U-S-L-Y-? Look, Nazaretha didn’t even bother to look towards Slimmy or even Kong who was still looking at Nazaretha with astonishment even in his pain.
Nazaretha began to read the bible verse slowly but audible enough for Slimmy and Kong to hear “If I forget thee oh Jerusalem, let my right hand forget it’s skills. If I do not remember thee, let my tongue stick to the roof of my mouth” Slimmy and Kong struggled to listen to Nazaretha reading the bible as the sounds of gunshots still kept on rocking everywhere, all of a sudden there was a loud bang at the gates and the sounds off gunshot increased, Slimmy sneaked to the window and stuck out his head enough to see what was happening outside, the first thing he saw was Host shooting at the white tigers like a mad man, he was a beast on the gun, Gentle and Rofiat also entered behind him as Host covered for them with the vigorous shooting, Slimmy smiled as hope was restored unto them.
OJ ran as fast as he could away from Fabio’s house leaving the car they brought and the other guys to find their own way. He didn’t anticipate what they had encountered. From the expertise of the Arch Angels shooting to Host appearance, it all took him by surprise.
OJ had begun to suspect something fishy when he called Fabio and the response he got was in a shaky voice. But the message which was sent through Fabio’s phone was what finally gave the Arch Angels away, if not the Tigers wouldn’t have been sure that Fabio had been caught.
Oj knew that Fabio would never send for them to meet him in his house, especially because he was a top member of the Angels and he was always being watched closely. Their former meetings had been in the SUG offices and buildings. There they could discuss properly and he’ll reveal the Angels’ secrets to them without any suspicion, anybody who sees them would think they were discussing about the upcoming elections. So when the message entered for them to meet him in his house, Small and OJ knew at once that Fabio had been caught.
They relayed the information to Screw who quickly began to plot with them, how they would turn the Arch Angels trap against them. The Tigers planned well, their only mistake was to underrate the gun proficiency of the Angels. That was why it took OJ by surprise when less than five men in the house were taking down more of his men.
OJ finally got to the Tigers quarters and scaled over the fence from the back of the house. He scurried through the flowers and got to the back door, he opened it with his spare key and entered into the house. He paused for almost a minute to regain his breath and began to proceed to the lounge.
Two guns from different directions were pointed to him as he opened the separating curtains and entered the lounge.
In less ten minutes of Host’s arrival, the place was already quiet and not less than twenty of the Tigers were laying lifeless on the floor, the ones who escaped death had fled the area.
Host had arrived unannounced with Gentle and Rough, starting the bullet spray right from outside the gate before crashing the gate forward with their Mercedes Benz sprinter Van, crushing over three tigers in process. Gentle was driving the vehicle. Host stepped out as soon as they got into the compound, his eyes were quick to spot the Tigers in their uniforms wherever they were and it took him only a shot toch to take out most of them.
Now, Host surveyed the area with his eyes for some seconds, still shooting at the dark places where an enemy could possibly be hiding. Rough and Gentle had their positions with their guns at the left and right side of Host.
After a minute of noticing no movement, Host made a signal to Gentle with a nod and Gentle stepped away to the vehicle. Gentle then entered into the driver’s side and sat down. Host and Rough too began to recede towards the vehicle.
“Slimmy, where are you? Are there still obstructions on the way?” Gentle shouted into the phone.
“I’m still in the house and I can’t see any obstruction.” The reply came.
“You guys should come and join the vehicle now, we’re moving out already.”
“Okay,” Slimmy answered and the call ended.
“They’re coming to join us now Boss, they’re still in the house. ” Gentle said to Host as Host placed his feet into the car through the passenger’s side. He cocked his gun and pointed it directly towards the entrance of the house, in readiness to clear anyone that tries to attack his boys when they come out through the door. Gentle took the same position as Host while Rough journeyed to the back of the Van.
Soon, Slimmy and Nazaretha came out through the entrance with Kong trudging behind, with his right palm firmly grabbing the left arm where the bullet had entered, close to his shoulder. Slimmy slowed down to assist Kong while Nazaretha continued to proceed forward, still reciting some Psalms from the Bible, this time, Thanksgiving Psalms.
They got to the Van safely and Slimmy entered into the back with Kong, Rough helping them climb. Host dropped his gun and entered into the passengers side of the car.
“Where the hell are you going to?” Gentle shouted at Nazaretha who was on his way outside the compound.
“Someone’s gotta grab the car we came with,” Nazaretha shouted back, with a kind of complacent attitude.
“It has been destroyed already, get into the Van or we drop your a*s here.” Gentle shouted once more before entering into the car. He turned on the engine immediately.
As soon as they drove off, they began to hear sounds of the police sirens approaching from the other side.
Small,” OJ shouted in surprise. “You don reach here?”
Small and Coded put down their guns and tucked it back into their pockets. Small ignored OJ’s question and proceed to take his seat somewhere on the bare floor close to the main entrance into the lounge. He tore off part of his trousers and rolled up the other side. A bullet had gotten into his left leg.
“Oops!” OJ exclaimed as he saw Small’s agony in trying to tighten the bullet wound with the pieces of cloth. “Shey Baba don call Kemi?” OJ asked, approaching Small slowly.
“Kemi is around, Baba was banging her before we came in.” The answer came, not from Small but Coded who was behind.
OJ heaved a sigh, feeling pains heavily in his heart. They had gone to face fire while their leader was having a nice time with a girl. But no one had thought that it would be fire for them, they had gone to set the Arch Angels on fire, with the hope of taking out some of their top executives not knowing that it would turn around and become fire against themselves. In short, they had only gone to sacrifice a large number of their members.
Screw walked into the lounge through another entrance looking disgruntled, a slim lady putting on a skimpy gown followed behind him holding with her a nurse kits bag.
