Hi, what’s up.
Am cool Madam. I don’t have much time. Have you seen the news? 
No, not yet.

Well, it’s not surprising for him to be bothered. I guess he would be looking for the insider who leaked this info.
Well, I have to be careful.
Yes. Good luck.
Thank you Madam.
(things go smoothly for about one week, then the second news hits the news).
Honey, Ferd, come and watch this. Darling, you seem to be interested in the news of late.
I have loved it since childhood. So what is it now? 
Sit and listen for yourself.
‘’Authorities say that the death of Valerie, daughter of the late Hackman was indeed a thrill but with underground research, suspects are coming up. A letter that was addressed from the late valerie makes it obvious that he was with her the night of her death. As at now only one suspect appears. Mr. Ferdinand Akolakye. This report was given to us by our own C.I.D Miss Keisha Zomelo, The name is Efya reporting live from the police headquarters.
Shit. Why her 
Who is she Fred?
Nobody. Just go in. 
No fred, I don’t understand this. What is happening why are they saying you are a murderer. 
Just shut up and go in
Don’t you scream at me I will go. Goodnight
(calling).
Hello Fynn,
Hey Ferdinand.
Fynn, what do I do with all this scandal. 
Am really sure it’s an insider Ferdinand.

Hello Keisha.
Ferdinand, what are you doing here?
Facing the press.
Well. This is Efya and we have our suspect Ferdinand here and he is ready to talk to the press. 
Mr. Ferdinand, what do you say about all that.
Well, all I can say is yes I was there at Valeria house but I left her because I had an urgent call and I came back later to meet her dead.
So, sir, why did you not call the police
Well, you did not expect me to do that. I left there.
Anything else you want to say sir?
All I want to say is that I don’t know who is giving the you all this fake information but I loved Valerie, I couldn’t possibly hurt her.
You heard that for yourself. He claims, he is innocent. This is Efya live from the head quarter.
