“Senator Bala Na’Allah: We are Senators and we are here to see Senator Dino.”
“SARS leader: I know you. You cannot see him now. It is an instruction.”
“Bala Na’Allah: Instructions from above?”
SARS leader: I said it is an instruction, may be you can see the medical director..”
The delegation left without seeing Dino.
