Whiles many are demanding justice for the young and beautiful nurse. others are of the view that the police have demonstrated on countless occasions that they cant serve Ghanaians with justice.

I don't know if they want the citizens to set up their own private investigative bodies. Because honestly we live in a country that the laws don't work, and you don't really see the police doing much. @GhPoliceService let the citizen know we can rely on you pls #Justice4RuthEshun

I think the police service in the Ashanti Region is not doing much to protect the people from these akwashi boys. It seems Ashanti Region is no mans land #Justice4RuthEshun
