SeGE: I’m so sorry about that onihaxy, if you say I
was wrong, then I admit it, though I never knew I was
wrong by teaching her a lesson.
ME: which lesson?.
SEGE: she is a prostitute and a scammer onihaxy!!,
don’t you get it?. She used your money to travel
down here to visit another guy.
ME: and I’m here paying for the consequences sebi?.
SeGE: I’m so sorry about that, let’s put that aside
and let’s focus on how to solve the problem at hand.
Tomorrow is thursday that you are supposed to travel
for your new job, how do we go about it?, that is why
ME: Mr segun, there is no solution as I couldn’t
retrieve my credentials, so I can’t travel anymore.
SEGE: haaa!!, so what do we do next now?
ME: ***frowned*** nothing, you can go now.
SEGE: are you chasing me out of your house
ME: segun. I am not only chasing you, this Friendship

SEGE: ***moves closer to pat me on my shoulder***
ME: ***removes his hand***
ME: **yelled*** ehn ehn!!!!, what happen!!!!!?
SEGE: we have been friends now, its close to 8 years
ME: and what does that teaches us?
SEGE: it teaches us that we have gone too far to
ME: thats none of my business
SEGE: ok, even if we must break up, we must first
find a solution to the present problem first.
ME: **screamed** ogbeni, sebi you heard me, there
is no solution!!!, you can go.
SEGE: onihaxy, calm down, I will never leave you like
this and I will never leave this place until this thing is
resolved. If you like, go and call police for me or get
me arrested, I won’t leave here.
ME: ***ignored him***

ME: ***began to smile gradually***
SEGE: that’s my nigga. You are always handsome in
ME: sege talk to me jaree, what is the alternative?.
SEGE: before I shipped in the alternative, why not try
bimpe’s number again whether it will go through
ME: it doesn’t go through since 1960
SEGE: werey!!!, just try am first jaree.
ME: ok ***stretched my hands to my bag and brings
out my phone and switched it on***
SEGE: oloshi!!!, so you switched off your phone

ME: ** opened the inbox and noticed a familiar

SEGE: ok, maybe na one of your concubine
ME** I read the first line which says “its me
ME: na from bimpe oo
SEGE: really?, wetin she talk?
Segun came closer and we sat together to read the
message which says
“Onihaxy, its me adebimpe, if you still need your
credentials, deposit a sum of 200,000 naira to the
account name and number below, as soon as I
confirm your deposit, I will give you a call and send
the credentials to you via a public transport, if you try
anything funny, you will be the one to suffer the
consequences, bye and take care”.
SEGE: 200,000 what!!!!, where do we get such
amount between now and tomorrow?
ME: what do we do now?
SEGE: I’m clueless onihaxy.
Me: segun, today is wednesday and I have to travel
for this job tomorrow, where will I get 200k now?
SEGE: onihaxy calm down, getting the 200k isn’t the
ME: why is it not an issue?
SEGE: Adebimpe is the major issue
SEGE: can’t you see it clearly that this is a blackmail
ME: I still don’t understand
SEGE: the way I’m seeing it, Adebimpe will never
send any credentials to you even if you pay a million
ME: why did you say so?
SEGE: someone who is so desperate for a revenge
and even went to the extreme of having your vital
credentials in her custody, why should we trust her
when it comes to money?
ME: hmmmmmmmm. “Ayemi ooooo, Temi bami”.
SeGE: onihaxy, come to think of it, someone who
switched off her phone all this while and only send
text once in a while, it is so obvious that she would
switch off again after getting the deposit alert.
ME: it seems you are right. So what do we do now?.
SEGE: let’s do it this way. Call her number first and
let’s negotiate with her.
ME: ok **dialled her number***
SEGE: is it going through?
ME: ***phone: the number you have dialled is unable
to receive call****
Its saying unable to receive call, what does that
SEGE: it means she barred all incoming calls. You
see what I was saying?, this girl don upgrade to
ME: **wanted to cry** segun please come to my aid,
my world is crumbling, what do I do?.
SEGE: calm down onihaxy, I just thought of
ME: what is that?
SEGE: you remembered that you scanned your
credentials and sent to a particular firm you applied
to in lagos few months ago.
ME: oooh yes I remember!!!, how about it?
SEGE: yes, we will make a coloured printout and
