Four out of the 12 watches that were stolen cost N8 million because they were N2 million each gold watches that somebody bought for me.The others were N500,000, N400,000 N300, 000 watches. I love big watches. My wife’s gold and other jewelry were also stolen. They also stole four phones that I left in the house. Thankfully, they did not injure anyone of them”
