Ola: Uche, I am sorry I actually drugged you this morning!
Ola: Yes, don’t be surprised. I drugged the food you ate when you were finding

going to happen today.
Uche: What happened?
Seyi: Uche, almost all the voting centers today was attacked by unknown gun men.

Felicia: Ola, who are you? What are you? Because the more I try to understand
