This early morning, he called me to check the internet if the story of the alleged crashed of the scheme was true, I told him so I heard and he screamed and hung up. When I heard him, I knew it was no longer funny, so I had to rush to his house around Sabon Gari to discover that he had taken Raid insecticide.
I had to call the fiancée to inform her. I have to take him to the clinic where he is currently battling for his life. The babe is already on her way from Abuja,” he added.
