We are by and by living in dread.” According to him, four people from the community were captured in the early long stretches of Friday, including that they were gotten in their homes and taken to an obscure goal. “The police officers came in four Hilux vans and this means we never again have an opportunity of development in Abba,” Ezepue said.
