“I told him to inform them to wait for me. When I went, I met two men who saidthey had some issues to speak to me about, so they asked that we descend, but Itold them that since I am hosting the programme, I can’t go far. Immediately, one of them who was wearing a cap pulled me and they started beating me for no reason,” he said. “They beat me mercilessly to the point where I could not move, so I pretended as if I was dead. So after some time, they realized that I was dead and they left me,” he added.
According to him, the unknown men took one of his phones away. “I heard one of one of them asking the other, have you taken that phone?” he added.
