She cut the call and i got up and went to check who is on the door.

Mogbe na wetin police find come our house, i ran inside to see if i

briefcase inside there, then i clean myself up, too much sweat.
Police: open the door now or we will be force to break it.
I ran to parlour and open the door, i saw two police men and the two
guys (the lawyers) standing on my frontage.
Me: una good afternoon.
Police 1: yeah good afternoon, open the door first let us come inside.
Me: okay sir.
I open the door wide for them to come inside, they came and sat down.
The police introduce themselves and they show me their Id Card.
Police1: so whats your name sir?
Me: am Akhigbe Oziegbe
Police1: where are your parents?
Me: they went to work, am alone.
Police2: then you have to call them because you are coming to the
station with us.
Me: what did i do sir?
Police1: you will know when we get there.
Lawyer1: officer please lets just settle it here, if he co-operate and
give us what is rightfully ours then we can leave him.
Police1: okay good, do you know those men?
Me: yes sir.
Police1: good at least you are cooperating.
Police2: where do you know them from?
Me: well i know them from uanhumi when their car got accident.
Police1: and what happen?
Me: well i try to rescue them from the car, but i ran after i saw
police van, i dont want to be question for what i dont know about.
Lawyer1. No you took something from us and ran away, see we dont have
any problem with you, this case is crucial to us just give us back the
suitcase let the case die.
Police2: let us handle it please, now Mr Oziegbe you see, our plan was
to take u to station for questioning, but since they say we should
settle everything here it will be better for you to cooperate with us,
so tell us the truth young boy did you take any briefcase from the
car.
What you guys expecting me to say, tell them the truth so that i will
be free or i should lie to them and remain in bondage cus as i am now,

a stop to all this.
Me: yes sir i took a suit case from them.
Lawyer2: where is it now?
Me: inside my room, let me bring it.

Police2: leave there let me see.
He climb up and use his hand to search for the case, inside the
ceiling is dark so he didnt know the exact spot i kept it,.
