Narrating his ordeal, Sadiq said he returned home after seeing off a friend who visited him at about 9.30 p.m., and met seven men armed with guns inside his house.
"They requested that I should give them money. They told me that they were asked to come and collect the money I had and that if I refused to give them, they should kill me.
"Unfortunately for them, I had no money on me and that was how they resorted to packing my electronics and other personal belongings.
“They requested that I give them my car key which I did and they packed my electronics in it and drove off," Sadiq said.
