Nyali Member of Parliament (MP) Mohammed Ali now claims his life is in danger after unknown men raided his Nyali office yesterday night.
During a press conference, the MP accused the State of planning the raid to frighten him.
“The reports that we have is that police officers were forced to shoot in the air to scare away the robbers, who escaped on foot,” said Ali.
The property in the Kongowea region is shared by the Nyali National Government Constituency Development Fund (NG-CDF) and numerous national government agencies, including that local authority.
The outspoken MP claimed that detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Inquiry (DCI) went to the crime scene to conduct an investigation.
“As it stands, no one has been arrested. The police came to my office and looked at the CCTV footage. They have done dusting for fingerprints; they also reviewed the CCTV footage. There are faces which have been seen in the footage,” he said.
According to Ali, the officers are still looking into every office to see whether any additional items taken televisions are among the items that were purportedly taken during the raid.
“They (robbers) came and started checking office by office looking for certain documents. For them to take away the televisions, they want it to look like a normal robbery case. Police officers on the ground are doing stock taking with the fund manager to establish the amount of loss that has been caused,” said Ali.
