“One of your producers called me to ask if I knew something about what had transpired, and I said no. I have cross-checked, and there is no directive for anyone to come and disrupt your show. What happened is most unfortunate, and we, the party, do not condone it,” he said.

He said he went to the Tesano Police Station and saw that the thugs were writing their statement.

“I went to the police station, and they were writing their statement. Investigations would reveal the truth in the matter.”
