According to Moses Awukuvi, an Assembly Member for the Mafi Dove, who gave an account on an eyewitness report said the killer initially got the boy drowned to ensure the boy becomes weak before murdering him.

He initially got the boy drowned to ensure the boy becomes weak before murdering him.”

Mr Awukuvi noted that the community members of Mafi Dove and Mafi Aflokofe later got the wing of the issue and traced up only to find the boy dead and dumped underwater weeds in the creek at Mlagoe.
