He said that invitations had been sent out to relevant individuals that would assist in uncovering the truth.

The FCTA Joint Task Team, comprising of the Department of Development Control, Abuja Environmental Protection Board and the Social Development Secretariat, raided the club on April 26.

Videos of the raid trended on social media, showing varying human violations of women taken into vans and in custody at the Utako Police Division.
