You can ask people here about him, they will tell you he’s not a trouble maker. I was surprised when the Dpo referred to my son as suspected armed robber. I want the inspector general of police to investigate this matter because I want justice over the death of my son who is just 26 years old. He can never die in vain, justice must prevail.
