Below is the message Bash Ali wrote to Fidelis yesterday.
“The Minister for youths and sports Dulang today invited me to his office to conclude plans with BoI officials. After waiting for over 3 hours, i & 6 members of the LOC went to remind his PA that we were still waiting when a white man identified as an ambassador just came in & was ushered in. I asked the PA why & the police behind me hit me in the head with the butt of his gun & the other police hit me forcefully in my back. I collapsed & was revived at the ministry’s clinic. Now, i am on admission at the Trauma Ward, National Hospital, Abuja. THEY DON’T WANT THE PUBLIC TO KNOW ABOUT THIS. HELP ME, PLS. THANKS.
“Champ Bash Ali, OON.”
