Everyone rushed out to know what the cause of the scream and gunshot was.
They met the security men holding 3 men with one who was bleeding profusely on his leg.
“What’s the problem? Who are these people??” Ken asked one of the security men.
“Sir, we saw these men sneaking into the Estate through the CCTV camera and decided to trail them. We noticed they were headed here and as such apprehended them. When they noticed us, this particular one shot at us and tried running away so we had to shoot at them too before we finally caught up with them” The CSO of the Estate explained.
“My God!” Mummy Ken exclaimed.
“Who are you?” Ken asked moving close to them. “What are you looking for here?”
The Press around were already covering the incidence.
“You don’t want to talk?” One of the security men used a baton and broke the head of one of the men.
He screamed in pains.
“I will talk o” he cried
The rough one who looked like their leader (Dagger) pinched him not to talk but he refused.
“It’s one aunty that sent us to kill this lady here” he pointed at Pauline
“JESUSS!!!” Everyone exclaimed
“Me? Who’s that? And what did I do?” Pauline asked in shock
“Her name is Tessy”
“What? Tessy? My own friend and roommate?” Pauline cried out
“My God…the world is terrible!” Ken exclaimed
“I’m not shocked at all. I knew that girl was capable of doing anything. She’s a desperate sick lady. She needs psychological help” Baddo said.
The Police was called and in few minutes, they arrived at took the criminals, Ken, Pauline and Baddo and headed to Tessy’s residence to arrest her.
That day, the headline was filled with news of Ken’s proposal to Pauline and the attempt on their lives.
They arrived Tess’s place and met her outside burning some files and papers. She seemed surprise to see the police van in her compound but when she saw dagger and the other men, she perfectly understood.
“So you, Theresa sent men to come and kill me?! Huh!! You ungrateful and wicked soul. You forgot everything Idid for you ?” Pauline screamed and ran to fight her but Ken held her back
“Please calm down..” Ken said
“I believe you’re Miss Theresa right?” A police officer asked Tessy
“Ye..yes” she stammered
“You’re under arrest for sending assassins to kill your own friend. please be silent for anything you say ordo would be used against you in court” He said as he handcuffed her
“Whatever..I hate you, I hate you so much for taking my man away from me! If you hadn’t seduced Ken, he’d have still come back to me?” Tessy screamed
“What man? You shameless disgusting pig! I regret the day I met you” Pauline cried
“She thinks she can eat her cake and still have it.. this girl needs help, honestly.” Baddo said
“I’m just speechless” Ken said
“The good news is that, all your credentials are gone..I burnt them! Everything!!” Tessy laughed wickedly
“WHAAAAAT?!!!!!” Pauline, Baddo and Ken exclaimed in shock.
Pauline ranto the burning fire and indeed, all her credentials were gone.
She cried and ran to hit Tessy who was still laughing but Ken and Baddo restrained her.

The whole drama was explained to the police by Pamela and they were all released on bail.
