While in court, Litali said that all the other suspects are strangers to him as he has never met with them.

“All these people being held with me as suspects are strangers that I have never met. Detaining me for three weeks will subject my young family to a lot of suffering and anguish,” Litali told the court.

The composed body builder then requested the court to give him a bond so that he can take care of his young family.

However, the Magistrate ordered him to be detained for 21 days until investigations are complete.

“Due to the magnitude of this matter and the nature of investigations involved, this court will allow the police to detain the suspects at Langas police station to complete investigations,” the Magistrate ordered.
