I later called my friends to the house to come to help me pack my load. The doctor bought a lot of drinks and I became very high. I and my friends then tied the doctor and his friend. When my friends went out of the room, I came back with a Cutlass and macheted doctor because of what he wanted to do to me which I didn’t like.

“He came to my room and asked me to massage him. I told him I can’t do massage. He said he will pay me, that I should name any amount and I refused.”
