“ALHAMDHULILAH 💓💓 Am Back to my Feet Again..it’s Another Monday and Another Day that one should be Greatful To..To All my Enemies I Love you All,to my Friends and Family thanks for Standing with Me.”

The gang pounced on Anwar Loitiptip beating him with clubs and other crude weapons and Saumu sustained injuries as she tried to defend her man.
