“I don’t stay with them, but my grandfather came to call me that early, around 2am, Friday morning to come help them out for they are suffering from serious stomach ache. So, I went and we managed to take them to the hospital. Before we got to the hospital, my grandmother [Mama Agbobli] and brother-in-law [Forgive Tabolo] were already dead,” Kofi Agbobli told The Probe.

According to him, the four who are still on admission at the Presbyterian Hospital at Donkorkrom are Kofi Agbobli [grandfather], Peace Agbobli [aunt], and two children of the deceased brother-in-law, Ama Tabolo and Kofi Opare.
