Sindani said it was alleged that the owner of the property leased it to a tenant back in 2015 and they came to an agreement that the tenant could sublet and collect monthly rental on behalf of the owner.
“The new tenants had refused to sign subletting contracts. At the time‚ the owner had also decided to renovate the property.
“While they were busy with renovations‚ a group of about 50 people overpowered the security guard and forcefully moved into the property‚” Sindani said.
The matter was then reported to Group Forensic and Investigation Service (GFIS) in September 2018 for investigation.
The suspects were arrested on Thursday morning. The group will be charged with trespassing and malicious damage to property.
