Speaking to Accra FM on the incident, General Joseph Nunoo-Mensah said, "If I were the one in charge of the state when this happened, I would have killed somebody. I mean it, I would have killed somebody. How can this happen to anybody at all? When you listen to the story you realise that this is not the first time it has happened in the same company."

“It should never have happened. Just because of a few cedis you want to kill somebody’s daughter. This is happening in Ghana because we have allowed ourselves to be treated like that. It could not have happened a few years ago when I was starting my life in Nkrumah's Ghana, it could never had happened. I have lived in several countries. I was in Britain for 10 years, even there I would deal with the police officer because I knew my rights; you can’t do this to me," he further stated.
