Governor’s Lodge, Agudugba
“I have appointed Mrs. Juliet Iningo, the wife of our late governor Maxwell Iningo as the commissioner of finance purely on the basis of merit. Mrs. Iningo is a financial analyst with an impeccable track record. She has worked for PricewaterhouseCoopers, KPMG, Zenith Bank, and the African Development Bank in the past, amassing a wealth of experience that this state stands to benefit immensely from. Her appointment was not influenced by my relationship with her late husband, my wonderful boss in any shape or form,” Governor Abugu Mabali explained to members of the press at a press conference in the government house. “But what do you have to say about the allegation that there is a relationship between you and Mrs. Iningo, sir?” A reporter for Azonto Waves, a leading private television house in the state capital asked. “Of course there is a relationship between Juliet Iningo and I. You are absolutely right about that Miss…what is your name please?” He asked the reporter. “Miss Ashuayi Ologbongo,” she answered. Excitement in the room hit a fever pitch as reporters and guests stared quizzically at the governor to clarify his comment. What is the governor saying? They wondered. That he is sleeping with his former boss’ wife?

“Yes, Miss Ologbongo I do have a relationship with Mrs. Iningo which is based purely on friendship and professionalism. She and I have known each other for most of our lives. We have served on the same committees before and her family and mine have been best of friends for ages. Those are the types of relationships I share with Mrs. Iningo. Do not believe everything you read in the papers. When the former commissioner of finance resigned to run for council elections in his local council, we set up a search committee to look for the best candidate to fill the role of finance commissioner. The committee screened a long list of well qualified candidates and in the end, they recommended Mrs. Iningo.” “Did you at any time influence the decision of the committee?” “No, I did not. Absolutely not.” Juliet sat beside the governor smiling calmly. She was clad in black suit with a white dress underneath and a black skirt. Her shoes were black, while she carried a black Gucci bag. She and Abugu returned to the governor’s office soon after the press conference.

“You were mesmeric out there Abugu,” she said with her right hand on his chest and her left hand on his waist. “And your beauty and hypnotic smile kept them from asking further stupid questions,” Abugu replied. They kissed each other passionately. “I have to get back to work now…and you too. You have a lot of work on your hands now as commissioner of finance. We must be careful before people begin to get other ideas you know,” he warned. “Don’t worry. Because my office is close by does not mean I will be here every day itching for your touch.” “See you later Julie,” he said smiling as she began to leave his office. “It is time to change your phone. I will send one of my assistants to an Airtel shop to get you an iPhone 6. If your phone stops working, just know that they have successfully transferred your number to the new phone. I will have Ijezem stop by to drop off your new phone and line as soon as that is sorted. You are the governor for God’s sake, you need a phone deserving of your office.” “Thanks Julie.” “What would you do without me?” Juliet answered with a smile as she eased out of his office.
 
High Street, Azonto
Isabell Iningo was with her friends, Isekeme, Helen and Ozama. They had stopped by her shop to say hello. Isabell owned a top class beauty shop called Isabeauty on high street. After a prolonged chat during which Helen and Ozama had their nails done, the girls decided to take a drive at lunch time. They drove to Isabell’s favorite restaurant in Azonto, Aarons Signature Restaurant on Ibusa Avenue. “I feel like I am losing my mind really,” Isabell said. “I can’t seem to get over my father’s death. I really miss him,” she continued. “I am so sorry Isa baby,” her friends echoed. “I feel like I want to find out what happened to him. Days have quickly crystallized into months and it will soon be a year and no one seems to have any clues as to who killed my father. I am thinking of hiring someone to seriously look into his murder.”

“I know a very good lawyer Isa. If you are interested, he can be of help. He does investigative work as well. I think you should check him out,” Ozama suggested. “I would love to. I need to find out what happened to my dad.” “I will take you to his office in the business district after work this evening.” “No, after lunch. This thing is eating me up. I have knowledgeable staff that can take care of things at the shop. Let’s talk to him right after lunch.” “Fine then, I will take you there after lunch. Let me call to make sure he is free to see us.” “You do that.” Ozama placed a call to Jariye’s office. “This is Ozama Ashinbaye. I would like to talk to Barrister Jariye please,” she said over the phone to Jariye’s secretary. “Ozama how are you doing this afternoon?” Jariye’s voice echoed over her earpiece. “I am doing fine. I have great news for you. Isabell Iningo wants to talk to you. She wants us to drive to your office immediately after lunch this afternoon.” “Awesome!! Thanks Ozama. I will clear my schedule. Please bring her over.”

Magnus Drive, Azonto
“What happened to Charity, Kizinga? I am asking you Kizinga. What happened to our government house mole? I told you to keep an eye on her. How could you let this happen?” Vincent was yelling. He was terribly infuriated. “She was our only chance at infiltrating the government house. Now, how do we penetrate Abugu’s defenses? He is even more thorough and careful than Maxwell.” “We did not hit Charity sir,” Kizinga answered. “Then who did?” “We don’t know sir. My man saw another man leave Charity’s house the night she was killed.” “Did he get a picture?” “No sir, it was dark and there was no power that night. If he had taken a picture, surely the man would have come after him and may be the whole operation would have been jeopardized.” “So what do you have for me Kizinga? What do I pay you for?” “My man copied his car plate number before he left.” “Great! Now you are talking. So who is he?” “He rented the car for the operation sir.” Vincent looked at him with a mixture of rage and shock. “Who could this be? He must be a professional killer. In Azonto? And we don’t know who he is?” “He may have been brought in from outside to do the job sir.” “But who would want Charity dead? Kizinga, this is the sort of question you should be asking. Who wanted her dead?”

“I have been looking into that sir. Charity had a few meetings with Chief Alex Uwadighibe in the past few months. They always met in one of his houses on Katonga avenue, sir.” “You mean Chief Uwadighibe, the gubernatorial flag bearer for the Social Liberation Party?” “Yes sir.” “Are you serious? One of my arch enemies?” “Yes sir. I have an insider in Uwadighibe’s camp who confirmed that to me. It is likely that she was…” “She was sleeping with him?” “Yes sir.” Kizinga answered looking away. “I don’t care how you do it, just find out what they discussed in those meetings. By the way were you able to pick up anything from the bugs that Charity was to place in the governor’s office?” “No sir. We doubt that she actually placed them. We have picked up nothing so far. I had someone sneak into her apartment too, and the bugs are not there either. I am doing my best to find out what she discussed with Chief Uwadighibe.” “I don’t want your best Kizinga. I want results; facts!” “I will find some for you sir.”
