A small smile formed on my face as the officers rushed in with guns. They had come just at the nick of time. What I didn't expect was them arresting me as well! An officer grabbed my arms and hand cuffed me, yelling at me to comply. KK and the kid had the same treatment. The officer then grabbed me by the shoulder and lead me to the police car outside. "I'm not one of them! It's a mistake." I kept saying but it was like they didn't hear me. They put all three of us at the back of a caged car. "Mr Police please I was the one who called you to come oh. My laptop was stolen. I'm not a thief. I got robbed after I closed from the office." I kept saying. "It will never work. It's better to tell the truth," The boy said to me. "Ei but do you know me?!" I shot at him furiously. The Police officers just laughed and said they had meant this group for a while now. "Who wears a t-shirt and cap to the office? Shut up over there!" One of the officers yelled at me. At this point I didn't know what else to say.
When we got to the Police Station, they dragged us all into a small cell and took our wallets, phones and other possessions. I could not believe this was happening! "Look officer, I'm not one of them. My laptop was stolen and I went to take it back. I was the one who called you. Please check my call records." I said. One of the police officers starred at me. I hoped she was going to listen to my story but she just took out her phone and walked away. The rest didn't even bother.
I sat there in a bench wondering how to get myself out of this situation but what I didn’t notice was that there was more trouble waiting for me in the cell. "Hey, guy. Why are you making so much noise?" I heard someone say from the back of the cell. I remained mute. A shiver run down my spine. We all know about the scary cell mate stories. "You, the one in the black t shirt," He said again. I knew very well I was the only one in black but I pretended not to notice. When I heard the sound of footsteps next. I knew it was over for me. My heart started racing as the footsteps got closer. "Chale he is one of Frank's guys oh. Do you want trouble?" KK said. I turned around to look at the cell bully. His boy scared the daylights out of me. He looked at me walked back. His expression said it all. Whoever Frank was he wasn't to be messed with. For this particular case dierr I didn't deny Frank.
