Bridget’s phone rang……
Manager: hello madam, just like what you said, the police man has called me

Manager: (smiled) I trust you. At the usual place? When do we see? I can’t

Bridget: I know you, impatient dog. Will let you know when. The matter at

called. He told the investigator to find out everything he could, about

Uche: I’m sorry but he wasn’t arrested…he was found dead beside his…..

Uche: we need someone to come and claim his body.
Tosan: his body? Is Jason really dead? I don’t believe it. Which station
