The bereaved relatives of the 37-year-old woman who was allegedly murdered at Ayoum New Site in the Ashanti Region have expressed their utmost gratitude to individuals and organizations who supported them while they were mourning.
The death of the mother of three, Ruth Eshun Arhin has not only thrown her family into a state of shock and mourning, but also the general public.
A social media campaign is still on to seek justice for the Community Health Nurse who worked at the Sewua Health Centre.
Although police in the Ashanti Region have arrested two persons in connection with the incident, calls for justice for the deceased intensified during a solemn ceremony to lay her to rest.
The family in a statement copied to Citi News indicated that “While we remain calm based on the assurances from the Police we continuously ask for swift investigations and seek that justice be served.”
The family thanked the Ghana Health Service (GHS), the Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwives Association (GRNA), the Community Health Nurses Association of Ghana, the Media, the Ghana Police Service and the general public.
