"From what we are gathering from the security men, two vehicles supposedly military vehicles with about six people in military uniform came to the party head office and said that they had heard that there was some confusion taking place but the security guys told them they was no confusion.

"They entered the place locked up the security men and broke into various offices at the headquarters carrying sacks. After they finished their operation, they came out and asked one of the security men to remove something from the sack they were carrying and put it back - apparently to get his finger prints....and they took him away", Mr Andah stated.
