I can’t specifically say the person that released the video, but all I know is that it must be among my friends and associates that used to take my phone. Because I used to give them my phone.
“I was deeply shocked when I saw the video and how it went viral all over the world. In fact, when I received the news I could not stand on my feet. I experienced a lot of challenges, people were mocking me. There was a time that someone even stoned me, all because of that video. I had to spend three months indoors without going near the gate of our house.”
