After days of uncertainty, Bongo Ideas returned home, reportedly in a severely compromised state.

In his first interview following his release, Bongo Ideas spoke to German broadcaster DW Africa about his harrowing experience, attributing it to individuals he claimed were posing as law enforcement officers.

He recounted the terrifying ordeal: “In the early hours of March 14, 2024, around 3:am, individuals pretending to be policemen forcibly entered my residence and forcefully removed me. They threatened me with firearms, putting my life at risk, and subjected me to physical assault, all while cautioning me against speaking out against the President.”

His revelation sparked mixed reactions on social media, with many blaming Hyde for bringing such attacks upon himself.

However, others condemned the attack arguing that, the democratic processes should be used to deal with Bongo than resorting to clandestine methods to intimidate him.
