“It is my hobby and business to work with the government, to relate to the government to fight crime. Those who said the government will not drink water and keep [the] cup, we will join hands and follow them anyhow they want it.

“But, for now, we are enjoying, flexing, preparing for Wednesday. I am hosting my boys for Wednesday. So, let all the caretakers be prepared to host my boys on Wednesday, too.”
