(Caroline Martins is being interviewed by ace
broadcaster, Paul Imole)
Caroline: the fight
to bring justice for late Tonye Martins is in full swing. Contrary to what the
police investigation said, Tonye’s mental state was 100percent perfect. She did
not ki*ll herself. The Martins wants justice and justice we will get.
Paul Imole: thank
you (faces the camera) exactly two years ago, the body of thirty years old
banker, Tonye Martins was found in her boyfriend’s compound. Police claim she
was clinically unstable and stabbed herself in the neck several times. Tonye
and her erstwhile boyfriend- David Finley had a misunderstanding and she
thought a cook whom David had hired, Akudo alongside David’s old friend- Leslie
Okoronkwo were his mistresses. Leslie, Akudo and David were unable to stop
Tonye from killing herself. However, a video footage from a nearby CCTV camera
that captured the tragedy, is missing. No one knows what truly happened. It…

Akudo: I learned

Leslie: we have
something to discuss. I am uncomfortable with the recent developments and I
think we should act fast. I have called David and Lady Mosette severally; they
want me to remain calm. It is clear that this lady is winning and they don’t
know what to do
Akudo: I think we
should leave the country before we sink
Leslie: (takes a
deep breath) what else can we do?
Akudo: Flee o! If
Caroline gets that footage, we are doomed.
Leslie: I thought
Lady Mosette got rid of it

(isove estate, Lagos Island)
(Caroline parked her car in front of the house
beside Tonye’s murder scene, David’s former house. She steps out and knocks on
the gate. A lady opens)
good morning ma…I am..
Lady: I have been
expecting you. We cannot talk here. I will give you a call
Goodbye…people are watching. I will call you (slams the gate)
(Third Mainland bridge) 8:30am
(Caroline is driving at the Oworonshoki end of the
bridge when she notices two white jeeps trailing her. She drives faster and
they still trail her. She stepped on the brake suddenly and the two jeeps
served to avoid a collision. The cars hit the railings of the bridge and were
on the verge of tumbling over. A well-built man dressed in camouflage kicks
open the driver’s door from inside and holds out a gun. He aims it at
Caroline’s range rover and shoots. It hits the back windscreen and shatters it.
He fires four more shots, she ducks and drives off)
(Caroline’s condo) 10:45am
(Caroline lay on the longest couch in the living
room while Bode sits close to where she place her head. Inspector Njemanze and
Nkechi stand over her)
Why are you so stubborn? I told you to end this madness. I don’t like this!
I am fine. It was nothing
Nkechi: It was more
than that, Caro. You need to tread cautiously
Bode: (to Nkechi)
if you were not my fianc�e, I would have thought that you wanted Caroline dead.
How can you encourage her in this madness?
Caroline: (sits up)
Thanks for coming over guys. I will be fine. (To insp. Njemanze) thanks for
assisting the Martins family again. God will bless you.
(smiles) you are welcome. However, you need to be careful. I know you want
justice served, but e need you alive too. The move to assign a new detective to
this case is in full swing. Be rest assured that justice will prevail.
(Caroline’s phone rings)
Who is this? (Puts her phone on loudspeaker)
Caller: The lady
from isove estate
Caroline: How did
you get my number
Caller: Never mind.
I’m glad you are still alive. Meet me at Ketu. They won’t trace us.
Why should I listen to you? What do…
Caller: Do you want
the footage or not?
Caroline: I do.
Caller: 12 Demurin
street. 8:00pm. Tomorrow. First floor. Brown door. Knock once (hangs up)
Bode: You will be
so stupid to go there.
I choose to be stupid (goes to her room)
(12 Demurin street, Ketu) Next day 7:59pm
(Caroline stands in front of the Brown door. She
waits for the time to clock 8:00pm and knocks once. The lady opens the door.
She enters and the door closes. The apartment is dimly lit)
Lady: You were
(confused) By who? My brother?
Lady: No! Those who want you dead. There is a back door through the kitchen. It leads to the
backyard, scale the fence into a football pitch, run till you get to the street
where you parked.
Caroline: Why are
you doing this?
Lady: (gives her a
paper) this contains the phone number of Tamuno White now Munota Tweihh. When
you call him, just mention my name. Ibukun.
(a loud knock intrudes, Caroline shakes in fright)
Go! Use the backdoor
(Caroline obeys and disappears. The door is torn
down and shots are fired. It hits Ibukun in the head, chest, legs and stomach.
She slumps to the ground. Dead)
