As news of the killing of veteran journalist Dimgba
Igwe filters with allegations that he might have been murdered, a
Nigerian female journalist, Miss Chiagozie Okolo recounts an experience
with assassins below:
I had a funny experience
which I would want to share. So I was in the office getting ready for my
shift when my phone rang. The following dialogue ensued
Me: Hello Caller: we have been paid to eliminate you
Me: hello, who is on the line?
Caller: I said we have been paid to assassinate you
Me: Do you know whom you
are talking to? (at this point, I hung up) The call came again. And I
picked once more. This time, he talked first his voice graver than
Caller: Are you not Chichi Okolo? You work with Metro fm, you just recently got back from the states?
Me: yes I am
Caller: we were paid to eliminate you. As we speak, we have your complete info. Your picture is before us.
Me: so what do you want me to do about that?
Caller: don’t fuck with us (there were background noises of people who sounded so gruffy)
Me: to borrow your language I’m not fucking with you. I just asked a simple question, what do you want me to do about that?
Caller: good. We conducted
our own investigations. And found out you are innocent of all the
accusations levelled against you. So we changed our mind
Me: you’ve done your research well, no doubts. But you have not answered my question. What should I do about it?
Caller: are you ready to play the ball?
Me: what ball?
Caller: don’t fuck with us
Me: I’m not fucking with
you. Now since you’ve conducted your investigations and found that all
you were told about me were lies, why not take your money and go?
Caller: you have to settle me and my boys Me: please in what way?
Caller: it might interest
you to know that one of your colleagues paid us for this job. We can
even divulge the person’s identity to you Me: please what kind of
assassin are you that you want so much to betray the person who sent you
to kill me?
Caller: we’re not here to joke!!!
Me: if you don’t mind, please don’t call this line again. I have more important things to do. Please go look for job.
Caller: send me N400 recharge card. (at this point I hung up)
(This would be the second call from scammers in two weeks)
