They get ready to shoot the stranger.
But then he speaks.

THE STRANGER
You’re bleeding to death, Tawiah. Stick your hand in the earth around your feet, and the bleeding will stop.
Indeed, blood is shooting out of Tawiah’s torn fingers in wild gushes.
Terrified, he bends and puts his stumps into the earth, and then he withdraws his hand, and the bleeding has stopped, astounding all of them.

ADAMU
(scared)
What the f-ck?

ABOKYI
(stridently)
Kill him now!!

THE STRANGER
(sadly)
Abokyi Sereboe, I see the Angel of Death standing behind you! You’ve lived your life of violence from the infancy, and killed thirteen people in total. I wish I can help you, but I can’t. Alas, you’re going to die in your sins! How painful! But then, the Good Book always chastised us that he who lives by the sword eventually dies by the sword if he doesn’t change his ways.

ABOKYI
(viciously)
You bastard! You f-cking bastard! Die!!
He fires his gun, and it blows up in his hands, shattering his wrists, and then one bullet flies backward and smashes into his throat.
He clutches his throat with his bloodied hands, staring with fear at the stranger, and then he falls on his back, jerks spasmodically, and remains still.
Adamu drops his gun and tries to flee, but he cannot move a limb!
He is rooted to the spot!
Tawiah also tries to run, but finds out he cannot move too.

ADAMU
(terrified)
Who’re you? Oh, who are you? Please, whoever you are, spare our lives! Please, please, spare us, sir!

THE STRANGER
Like I told your friend here, I’m a messenger of God. I called the police on my way here. They’re going to arrest you. Tell them the truth, otherwise I will come and pay you a visit, and believe me, you don’t want me paying you a visit!
Just then the thieves hear the sirens approaching, and several minutes later a police assault vehicle appears.
The vehicle comes to a halt and heavily-armed huge policemen come out with drawn guns.

One of a them, CHIEF INSPECTOR NII LANTE, walks towards the stranger with shock on his face.

CHIEF INSPECTOR LANTE
You! I heard you! You spoke to me! You told me that the members of the Sereboe gang are here!

THE STRANGER
I did. Those are Sereboe’s acquaintances.
CHIEF INSPECTOR LANTE
And Sereboe?

THE STRANGER
He’s the one lying over there. His gun exploded in his hands and he died!
A police sergeant is standing over Abokyi’s body.

SERGEANT
(amazed)
Inspector, come see! It is indeed Sereboe!

CHIEF INSPECTOR LANTE
(amazed)
I’ll be damned!

THE STRANGER
My work here is done. I’ll be on my way then.

CHIEF INSPECTOR LANTE
No, no, wait! You have to come to the station with me! There’s paperwork to be-

THE STRANGER
Sorry, but I’m not going to any station. There’s somewhere else I must go.
He gets into his beautiful and sleek Escalade, executes a tight U-turn, and then he speeds away.
They stare after him in incomprehension.

CHIEF INSPECTOR LANTE
(awed)
Who is that guy? How did he know the Sereboe Gang we’ve been pursuing for more than ten years is here?
