“Nothing of value was taken, except the hard drive of the CCTV recorder, which leads me to conclude, they had only one objective- my elimination.”

The aspiring Governor said the incident has however not deterred him, but rather, made him more committed to the cause.

He said the 2023 political season has started and those who cannot win on the field will seek other ways to attain power.

“We are clearly a threat to someone. That person and their group of persons will soon be exposed. In the meantime, I ask for your prayers and your support, and some privacy. Any additional detail we have will be released to you via the security agencies. Let them do their jobs.
