A group of people denied yesterday they were plotting to overthrow the government and claimed they were just hosting a "bingo social."
The group was surprised by news reporters who were tipped off by agitated neighbors that "something fishy" was going on in a certain mansion in southern Manila.
"Coup plot? What coup plot? We were just holding a weekend day of fun and games, anything wrong with that?" said the belligerent woman who answered the door as she attempted to block the reporters from entering.
After a few minutes, during which reporters heard sounds of hasty packing and furniture being overturned, she allowed the media inside.
