Ifediora opened his eyes as a splash of cold water touched his bare body.He blinked twice but still couldn’t see anything.Everywhere was completely dark.It took him a few seconds to realize that his head had been completely covered in sack cloth.He tried to move his arms but couldn’t, he only got the rattling of big chains around his wrists.He now became scared.All he remember was,two men in masks, standing beside his bed,with his new wife screaming behind the huge palms of another masked man.
He began struggling with the chains to see if he could free himself but to no avail.He seized his struggling when he heard voices from a distance,but couldn’t make anything from them.The voices where so faint that he couldn’t hear them clearly.He began shouting.”Who’s there?! What’s the meaning of this?! Get me down from here now! If you don’t get me down now, I will shout till someone hears me, do you understand?! I will shout!” He stopped his rambling a minute later when he heard a sizzling sound, like hot iron cooling in water.He couldn’t bring himself to think what the hot iron is for.He heard multiple footsteps coming towards his position.”Who are you? What do you want from me?” “Mr Ifediora Emecheta,where are the documents you used in framing your boss and your share of the money?” Ifediora’s heart jumped into his stomach.He could tell it was a male voice.”What documents? Which money? I haven’t the slightest idea of what you are talking about. Are you the police? If you are, you have no right to treat me this way. Ah!” He shouted as he felt his flesh burning from the extremely hot iron that was pressed against his feet. “Mr Ifediora, if you don’t tell me what I want to know, you will leave here a cripple.”
