According to him this matter in order to serve as a wakeup call for other officers who have taken the law into their hands.

He has declined to listen to some perceive chiefs and very important personalities who have waged into the matter to plea for leniency shortly after the media publication.

According to him, the two police officers sergeant Amoako and lance corporal Marfo have ran to a certain Nana Obudgya Asante II, a sub chief in the New Juaben Traditional Area and a childhood friend to intervene on their behalf.

The two officers have indicated their readiness to compensate the victim with any amount and pay the hospital bill of the victim who was taken to the Koforidua Regional hospital for treatment and discharged in order to settle the matter at home instead of using legal means.

Mr. Aglebe continued that, no amount of money would have saved his son if he had died out of the situation, hence the need to apply the law to bring justice and correction among unscrupulous service personnel.
