“I told them I am living after waiting for more than forty minutes I did not see any DPO coming forth so I left. Getting to my house after like thirty or forty minutes I got home,the DCO called me that the DPO is in the station that I should return,I told him I have people I am attending to,that I will come much later . They matched to my compound,invaded my house and my Dad blocked them and told them I am not around that I have left,they push my Dad,broke in and searched my house and left with two of my drivers,three security men attached to me and my Cousin.
