“We had an altercation and grievance due to personal issues and then the main issue was financial issue to rob my money because I win some couple of pieces of boledo last night and I got money from other sources, nice money and they like to see and like three hundred and odd dollars had spent because I was socializing and inviting them with some drinks and things like that that cause the whole altercation.”


August says his bicycle was stolen along with all his money. He sustained a cut wound to his head. August says he reported the incident to the police but adds that he was also mistreated there.

“They wanted to lock me down forcibly and I have a bad leg and afterward they were couple of them who kicked me with their police boots because they say I went through the wrong way and because I didn’t respect the station and didn’t respect him.”
