“They ransacked the whole room, scattered some of my documents in a most frightening way. In fact, it’s a direct attack. They stole two television sets (a 55 inches Hisense CurveTv and an LG 32 inches Tv) while they also took away vital documents.
“We have reported the case to the police in the Ijare Division and they have promised to identify those who perpetrated the evil act. I trust that the police will surely go after them.”
