“To let MK know that this time it will not be business as usual, the two entry points to the creek where he and his criminal gang are hiding have been blocked by creek dragons who monitor when and how they will move.

“I want to use this medium to thank the security agencies and the dragons of the creek for taking the battle to this notorious kidnapper.
