He has not had any meal orĀ  taken water but we are yet to establish if he has any tissue injuries,” explained a doctor at Kabarak University Health Center.

Speaking from his hospital bed, the Silale MCA stated that the attackers had earlier parked their car adjacent to his own vehicle. All along he thought the nearby car is owned by a random contractor in the town where he had spent most of his Sunday afternoons. ” I tried to resist them but one of them hit me on the head with a gun. I lay down, they blindfolded me and put me in a car and drove off immediately,” he recalled.
