“All entrances to my residence in Mississippi have been secured by the police that claim there is no order to arrest me. One truck by centagon school too. Media and Nigerians take note. We have pictures of those involved.”
“They have just zoomed off the trucks leaving 3 men at different end of my street wearing black.”
