The groundbreaking ceremony for a youth center is overshadowed by the violent death of Musa Bamafor. The building contractor was beaten up so severely that he died as a result of his injuries. Seventeen-year-old Jammo and Kayla overheard the fight by chance but couldn’t see who was involved. They want to find out more and start investigating, together with their friend Fidelis. Was Bamafor really corrupt, like everybody says, and could this be related to his death? The young amateur detectives make some astonishing findings which reveal that not every piece of information that is spread can be trusted. They uncover a network of power and intrigue in which fake news plays a crucial role. This story was written by Pinado Abdu Waba (Nigeria).
