We apologized to the house mistress to allow our ward stay for the night but she said no and asked us to take her together with her belongings"
"My husband interrogated my daughter and she explained that the phone belong to one, Diamond Appiah who is also a student. We had no money on us and we had to pack her things into a Trotro and journeyed home"
"I had to comfort my daughter and ask her to go to school today to write her paper.
