He threatened to take the law into his own hands should the police fail to give the boy justice.


Mr. Wunduwa revealed that the police in Nalerigu arrested the suspect but were compelled to release him due to some interference from chiefs and politicians in the area.


“ They are trying to use the Nayiri to overpower myself and the police so even if it becomes critical for me to go to Accra and ensure that this case doesn’t die I am prepared to do so because the way the boy is lying down he cannot do anything again.”
