Me: This is Biola’s Phone
Simbiat: The screen is broken, it has been off all this while. Though I don’t have money to repair the phone as all the engineers I gave it to said the screen is not yet available
in Nigeria except we would order for it from abroad.
Me: Who was the person in my house before my arrival then?
Simbiat: I still have the phone conversation on my phone and i don’t know if this phone can
be repaired maybe there might be some clue of the person that came to the house there
Me: definitely, thanks so much dear, you are a darling.. Can you help me take this phone to
my lawyer?
Simbiat: Where is his office?
Me: This place, just give him the phone and explained to him your understanding
Simbiat: But you know i might not be able to come to court as a witness
Me: No problem dear, just help me drop your number for the lawyer too so that we can
always contact you.
