The mother of two told Agoo’s Kojo Nyavor on her sick bed that she expects justice from the Police. She expressed worry over how she can get back on her feet and take care of her children after the incident.
“I went for a meeting and on my return the police vehicle clashed with another car which pushed me to a gutter. Later, I realized that I have been admitted to the hospital. I am currently having general pains, suffering from my hand and you know I am a disabled; the strength is not enough to carry on but my God who saved me will surely anoint me with his healing powers. My head hit the ground so I am experiencing a severe headache.
“The doctors here are working tirelessly to help so remember me in your prayers,’’ she recounted.
