“After profiling them, we discovered that out of 33 of the, 32 are Chadian nationals while only one of them is a Togolese.

“We tried to find out why these people are here and also from the same country and they told us that they were invited to do networking business. We tried to see the type of product this Togolese whom they claimed recruited them for business does and to be frank he cannot show us anything.”
