However, given the course of events, I ask myself a number of questions that I want to share with all my friends. Since the beginning of this case in which I am a victim, he goes weird things that lead me to ask myself questions. It was always about conspiracies perpetrated by powerful lobbies. There was also talk of Masonic Lodge and other sponsors. I cannot condone these allegations, but I cannot help thinking that indeed there are some strengths lurking in the shadows who want to bury myself, ” said Thione Seck in a message.
