So, on Tuesday, June 21, the Bomo Geographic Information System tore down his shop while he was in jail.

A source said that the man was arrested because the person in charge of the streetlights in the area was curious. On Tuesday, he became suspicious of the shop and asked the man where the power for the fridges was coming from since there was no sound of a generator.
