“I became worried and quickly ran home to call people’s attention to help me look for my daughter because she went out in the morning without telling me where she was going.

“When we could not trace her, we informed the police and went to other places to pray so that she could come home. But we did not see her until police called that her body had been found naked in one cocoa farm, very close to our area.”

Juliana urged the police to help unravel what happened to her daughter and arrest the perpetrators.
