So, what is Nelson to do, dear reader?
1. He could demand to be allowed to see the body of his dear friend.
2. He could rush to Mrs Abacha with the news. She, of course, would collapse and be rushed to hospital.
3. He could try to coerce the lawyer to finish the deal.
...but I am just being silly here, of course he will realize that the whole thing was a counter-scam and run for cover, never to be heard from again, by that name at least.
