“Even if you are the most quiet person on earth you will not give yourself to so much scandals.
There are things people don’t know. One or two persons took advantage of that and came out and say one or two things.

“The reason I am coming out to speak now is because they have done all that and discovered that I am still moving on, they decided to make attempts on my life.

My car was attacked, they opened fire on the car and kept spraying bullets.
My wife and my kids were there .
In the escort car, they killed the policemen, they killed other people in the other escort car and the bus.
“In all, they killed seven people in the convoy .

“People are expecting me to come out and mention their names so that they can deny. I won’t.do that.
But the truth of the matter is this, you can’t kill me. My life is in the hand of God, I am a man of God and those who are attacking me, you are holding on what you don’t understand .
“You may have joined the fora because you want to chase cloud but you don’t know where the fight started from.
There are things you don’t understand. You don’t even have an idea of the begining of what happened in 2017 and the people that are behind it.
