MY SWORN ENEMY
I swear, I don’t know what you people are talking about, am innocent “joe said as blood was Coming out from his mouth
Is this not the plate number of the car you and your gangs used and kidnapped Mr Lawson’s daughter, and you are here lying “detective Nathan said showing him the plate number of his car written in a paper
Yes, that is the plate number of my car, but believe me I know nothing of the kidnapping issue am innocent, although my car was stolen two days ago, but as I was coming to report to you people I saw my car on the road, I think that was where all this mistake was coming from, maybe they used my car for the kidnapping before dropping it on the road, I swear am innocent “joe explained and still they didn’t believe him
“You are a big liar “detective Nathan said and they continue to torture him
Meanwhile Anita was at home when she heard that her husband was in the cell, Immediately she heard it she rushed down to the station and pleaded with them to release her husband that he is innocent, she even explained to them of how joe car was stolen two days ago, but they didn’t believe her either, they said that joe must face the law if he doesn’t provide his gangs and the girl they kidnapped, Anita tried everything possible to convince them that her husband was innocent of the accusation but they refused to listen to her, so she went home crying, some moment she called Sophia and told her everything and Sophia assured her that she will defend her husband even if they take him to court.
As all this was going on, the kidnappers were waiting for Mr Lawson to pay the money they demand for but he didn’t pay the money, so the person they were working for called and told them that Mr Lawson was involving the police to trace them.
So boss what do we do now? one of the kidnapper asked
What you will do is to kill the girl since Mr Lawson have involved the police to trace you guys and also he don’t want to pay the money we demand for, so there is no need to keep the girl, if not it will Implicate us, just kill her and drop her body in front of her father’s compound, after all I have succeeded in my first plan of setting joe up, but my second plan to collect money from Mr Lawson didn’t work out, anyway no problem just do as I said “their boss said and ended the call.
Later that night, the kidnappers killed Mr Lawson’s daughter Jane, and took her body and dropped it in front of her father’s compound and left without anybody seeing them.

So Mr Joe, what the detective just said now was it true? the judge asked
“No my Lord am innocent of the crime they are accusing me of, I know nothing of the kidnapping case “joe replied
So where is your lawyer who will defend you, because this is a kidnapping and a murder case “the judge said
