Funmi: I know my mother…she wouldn’t align with the enemy for no reason. What is going on here?
Nkechi: I am not the enemy. I was just caught in the middle. Her vendetta against the Martins doesn’t concern me

(Tamuno looks at the first lady. She nods. He looks at Nkechi with suspicion)
Tamuno: Who is she?
Lady Mosette: My assistant…any problem?
Tamuno: I don’t think so
Lady Mosette: Good! Now…for this campaign, 1.2billion naira should be set aside for the mobilisation of the women. We will be visiting the women miniistry and some women organizations. We have to make the women folk very comfortable with the first lady. I believe having the women on our side would mean part of the election has been won

Njemanze: Miss Martins…how are you doing?
Caroline: well…I’m holding up…it is difficult
Njemanze: Stay strong, I believe justice will come your way
Caroline: Thanks…how is Bode?
Njemanze: Well…he is the reason I tried to reach you earlier.
Caroline: (worried look) what is wrong? Is he okay?
Njemanze: He was poisoned by Nkechi and it damaged his kidney. He needs a transplant urgently
Caroline: Nkechi poisoned Bode? The witch has shown her real colour. Inspector, has she been arrested?
Njemanze: Sadly, no. Bode doesn’t want to press charges.
Caroline: is he insane? Why does he always have to be complacent. He let Tonye’s case go like that and now Nkechi! I see a pattern and I won’t let it thrive especially when I’m still breathing
Njemanze: calm down…it will be fine
