    I became so weak hearing that statement as tears drop down my cheek. Is everything ok i asked him over the phone.

    I started crying like a baby, i have never been this helpless in my life …

    Oga why you dey cry like woman, the policeman asked me.

    No worry shabi them want send you money, when we receive alert we go let you go..Be strong you be man …he said..

    After a while, i got an Alert, he sent me 10k to pay to account.

    I Told them i have gotten the alert they asked me how much, i told them 10k..

    Oga that money no go anywhere, e too small …you know see say we plenty… One of them said ..

    Make we collect that one, make him go see him wife…Today na your lucky day. One of them said.

    As they were driving by they came across an ATM machine inside the Bank, i had already transferred the money to them but they didn’t get an alert, probably because of network so they still kept me.

    One of the policemen entered the bank to check if they had been credited.

    After awhile, he was coming towards the van giving the others signal that he has seen the alert.

    Suddenly someone shot him from behind he fell down and was bleeding Profusely.

    We were all surprised not knowing that bank was be robbed and people were taken hostage.

    The policeman driving tried to start the car, so we could leave quickly but one of the robbers pointed a gun at him…

    They told us to come down and join those inside the bank.

    I was too confused, it was already 2pm that Friday .

    But the day Just began for me!!!!

    They pointed the gun at me as we were entering the bank. Now i knew today has been cursed.

    First i was robbed of my Salary, i have only started working for three months after One year of joblessness.

    My wife was in labour I couldn’t help her now

    She is dying. …

    I lost my unborn child already …

    I can’t even see them.

    From one problem to the other..

    Now I am trapped for real. .

    God who did I offend.???

    What do I do now?

    I thought as tears roll down my eyes.

    I thought of how that policeman was shot and I became so afraid..

    The robbers are heartless. ..

    They took us into the bank, tied our hands and ask us to sit on the floor.

    I am so unfortunate, how did I get here!!!
