The laughter sounded very hilarious so we all turned to see who it was. Well it was Kelechi. Following the laughter, he said ”tell the police to release me after my confession or I would not speak!”. The police officers with me rushed at him to beat him up but I pleaded with them to leave him alone. I told him calmly that his request would be granted if he would say the whole truth.
