Collins Ayeh, who corroborated the account of his friend and colleague, said after the case was filed, he did numerous follow-ups with the Police, alleging that the police showed little interest in the matter.

"What hurts me is that the police should have helped in getting John Alister arrested. We never got any update regarding the case for three months. The only time we heard about John Alister was after news broke on social media that he had killed a new employer and bolted with her belongings".

The duo expressed delight that John Alister has been arrested and are hoping that justice will be served.

At the time of writing the report, the video had gathered over 18,000 views and 50 comments.
