That night we planned how to revenge butcher’s death in 3 days time and everything was well planned.
i was surprised to find out that skipper(that my friend)was the capon of ELVIS and i never knew that but today being 3rd day,the judgement day.we got to the school gate(3 of us.myself,matchety and viper)on mask,carrying guns in our bags.many of our people are already inside the school waiting to be supplied with the guns to poff out.we walked passed the security men on our black up and down straight to the fence and each of us throw our bags over the fence into the school compound,we pretended to want jumping over the fence too into the school,just then we saw the securities approaching us but before they could close up on us(we had no intentions of running)an army van covered up.pulled over and four soldiers rushed out with guns.
1st Soldier: (pointing gun at us)what did u guys just threw over the fence.
Yawa don gas.
