Police sources say, nothing was stolen from him.

Friends of the deceased who stormed the Suntreso District Police Command are yet to come to terms with the passing of the young man.

“Kwabena was a calm and reliable friend. He didn’t have qualms with anyone because he is someone who immediately apologises to people he offends. We just can’t understand why someone will do something like this to him. We are pained but God knows best,” a friend of the deceased, Derick Addai stated.
