The story is now going on in your head and Raheem has a question for you
Raheem walked into the bedroom furious and demanded an explanation but what he got was contrary against his religious belief, contrary against any moral you could think of, so with anger that someone he called friend betrayed him, someone he loved cheated on him, someone he devoted his time for and proposed to marry lied to him, he bounced on her.There was just the two of them, no one to rescue her from the warmth of a jealous fiancé but like the saying goes, there is always a miracle. Shaiza came visiting and saw the damage so she dialled 911.
Raheem now faces one count of attempted murder while Aisha remains critical in the hospital. Every lies has an expiry date but the question today is this...
Is Raheem’s action justified?
