    The Osigwe’s are the worst kind of people.

    Behind every great fortune, there’s a CRIME. That’s a line by Balzac and it applies to this terrible family. Knowing them, this was not some random robbery. It had to be an assassination.

    It’s good they got some payback at last. Hopefully there’s more to come.
