Some of my colleagues saw me and parked their cars as well. Omo, we constitute 4 the community dat day dem fear us. We dealt with the guy until their community executives came to take up the matter and were begging I should delete the video. I told them it’s noted and for that I won’t mention the name of the community but for those still beating old people, when you see this guy, ask him what he felt from us. ” He wrote.
