The Corona Virus...

Time: 10:15:02AM

Location: National Intelligence Agency

Every one as usual is seen working on their system; some walking; some talking to themselves and even at past nine, some just decided to get to work.

Faruq rushes as fast as his leg would carry him into the building. After clearing at the security point, he walked towards the passage that leads to the cortex with a white cup of coffee on his left hand and a pile of paperwork given to him at the security post on the other hand. He also had a brown handbag which he wore on his shoulder.

Faruq has the look of a lagos boy but actually hails from kastina state, just like a canadian actress who comes from pakistan.

Getting to the entrance of the cortex, he realized there was no guard on the other side, he had no choice than to push the glass door with his shoulder instead of his hand. He tried to walk so fast to his seat so as not be seen by Mr. Lukman but accidentally he bumped into Joel who was heading to the conference room for a meeting. His paper fell to the ground same as his cup of coffee but luckily his papers were safe.

”woh!!! watch it faruq ” Joel yelled as he bent to pick up some papers that fell from Faruqs hand.

”Oh my gosh, Im so sorry buddy, just a little tensed ” Faruq also bent to assist joel pick up his papers.

”I can see; thats why you
e late to work again ” Joel stood up slowly putting on a fake smile. He handed over the papers to Faruq who arranged them into a single ”file ”

”Actually it was traffic and aside that I heard in the news about some attack some minutes ago ” Faruq adjusted his handbag on his shoulder as they both proceeded slowly to the conference room.

Joel felt a vibration made by his phone in his pocket, he drew it out to check a notification before replying Faruq ”yea we just had ahmed in our custody ” and at a Faruq stood in shock with a wide eye ”you say what now ”

”You heard me ” Joel stated still fisting his eyes on his phone leaving Faruq who was still in shock. Faruq walked very fast in other to catch up.

”When did that happen, how, why ” since he actually knew the reason why ahmed was caught he rephrased his question due to the kind of reaction Joel gave him ”oh sorry I don mean why; what I meant to say was what happened? ”

Joel stood with a deep sigh before sliding his phone into his pocket. He stared at Faruq with a faint smile before replying ”If you had arrived early it would have been easy for you but anyway we got a lead on ahmed, kcee and his team sweeped into his location, took out his boys. Ahmed sustained some injuries but his son escaped with some kind of virus ” Joel explained as he turned towards the confrence room which was some steps from them.

”what kind of virus? ” Faruq asked with a questioning face, his brows furrowed together.

”I don know ” he shrugged his shoulder ”thats what we
e about to find out ” Joel added as they both enter the conference room meeting Kate; Mr. Lukman and some other workers on the seat.

Faruq walked towards a seat adjacent Kate with his head down, he had trouble maintaining an eye contact with Mr. Lukman ”Mor-morning Mr. Lukman, Im deeply sorry for coming late, I was held by ” Faruq tries to make some excuses not until Mr. Lukman cuts in ”Keep your excuses to yourself and focus on what we
e here for, Im sure Joel as briefed you on the situation ” Mr. Lukman said adjusting his spetacles.

”Yes sir. ” Faruq replied as he sat down before bringing out his laptop from his bag.

Mr Lukman stood up and walked towards kate who was typing very fast on her keyboard ”Kate hows the feed going ”

Kate replied with a faint smile but she never took her face off her system ”We
e ready to go live with the President ”

”Good ” Mr. Lukman nodded slowly. He stretched a little as he tapped a button on the telephone placed on the large round table ”Kcee are getting this ” he said to the telephone and immediately a voice projected out of the telephone.

”Yes Johnny ” Kcee who is still at the radiography warehouse answered and with that a connection rolled in and from both end; they are seen having a live meeting with the President through the tv hanged on the wall.

”Hello Mr. President, Its so nice to hear from you ” Mr. Lukman greeted with a smile on his face which showed his missing upper tooth.

”The pleasure is mine ” Mr president continued ”Im here with the vice president, my chief of staff (Yakubu Musa), my permanent secretary; the chief of army staff and also the governor of lagos state who joins us live ” Mr. President introduced his cabinets to Mr. Lukman. seeing that, Mr. Lukman decided to reciprocate that action.

He first of all sighed before speaking ”Thank you Mr. President. over here I have my personal data analysts – Kate Daniels; Joel Aaron; Faruq Jimad, Sarah vote and we also have over the phone our head of field opps Kcee Jones ”

”Hello Mr. President ” Over the phone kcee greeted, Mr. president was happy to hear his voice ”Its so great to hear your voice Mr. Jones ” Mr. President said with a broad smile on his face.

Mr President and kcee once had a close connection. He met kcee two years ago when he wanted to run for the presidential race, kcee was however assigned to him to be his guard. Thanks to kcee, Mr President escaped an attempted assassination which they later realized it was made by the other party. After attaining the presidential seat, mr president lost his close connection with kcee due to his tight schedule.

”Lets get down to business; what do you have for us ” The chief of staff cuts in with his fingers interlocked together.

Mr. Lukman adjusted his spectacles and began ”Mr. President, we have good news and at the same time bad news but Ill begin with the good news. Im happy to inform you that we have in our custody the head of the terrorist that attacked shoprite last week ” Mr. Lukmans statement left the dignities in shock or lets say a good shock as they stared at one another with smiles on their faces.

”Well indeed that is a good news and who do we have ” The vice president adjusted his tie to his neck before asking.

Immediately Joel reads out loud from his laptop placed on the center table ”His name is Ahmed Danladi, a big time arm dealer who had worked under the regime of Jarden ”

At the word Jarden, Mr president made a narrow look ”Jarden, I thought Jarden was apprehended by the NIA ”

”Yes Mr. President but not his ally. Ahmed escaped and started his own empire but this time it seems hes working under someone ” Mr. Lukman said while fiddling with a pen on his right hand. He stared at the tv hanged on the wall.

”What do you mean ” The governor of lagos who joined the meeting via zoom interrupted.

Mr. Lukman dropped his pen before replying ”during our investigation we found out that ahmed is kinda preparing something big here in this city ”

”Which is? ” My President question was answered by kcee who is still at the radiograph warehouse ”During todays attack, we saw ahmed and his son who we know as alazam escaping the building. Trying to catch ahmed, alazam escaped which means he is on the run. Mr President, while interrogating ahmed, he made mentioned about a virus ”

Before kcee could utter the next word, the chief of staff exclaimed with his head tilted to a side ”A virus? ”

”Mr. Jones this is the chief of army staff, what kind of virus are we talking about and particularly where is this virus? ” The chief of army staff *SAKA* asked leaning forward with his interlocked fingers placed on the table.

”Possibly this virus is in the hands of ahmeds son trying to get it to a man known as Dando Ayew ” Looking at Kcees answer, it still needs some clarification as Kate found in the conference room at NIA continued with the conversation ”our database shows no much details on Dando only that he had a brotherly connection with an ex soldier who was jailed and killed for betraying his team back in Ghana ”

”So what does this Dando have to do with the virus ” Mr President asked with a questioning look, he adjusted himself on his presidential seat.

”Mr. President we strongly believe that Dando is planning to release the virus to every part in the city ” Mr Lukman calmly said as he stood in his feet, pacing around with his eyes still fisted on the tv.

The chief of army staff decided to ask once again but this time directly to Kcee.

”Mr. Jones you have not answered my question yet. what kind of virus are we talking about? ” his question brought silence for some seconds amidst mr lukman and his co-workers.

Kcee sighed before responding ”sir im sorry to say but we
e dealing with something we all know as the…..
