Consequently, the family members submitted the petition to the Paramount Chief of Akyem Kotoku Traditional Area, Afosu Chiefs, Birem North District Security Council (DISEC) -and Member of Parliament (MP) for the area over the matter which has created tension and confusion between the family members and police officers in the area.
According to the family members, it is important for these high profile personalities of this country to held them to demand justice for killing of their boy because it is shows that the Abirem District Police Commander has sidelined the members of the family, particularly the biological mother of the deceased, Madam Grace Owusu from the case.
"In fact the very day when we went to the police station, the Abirem District Police Commander himself tells us that apart from the complaint who is the mother of the deceased, Madam Grace Owusu, he (senior police officer) is not going to deal in this matter with any other person. but surprisingly what we could see now is that the Commander has completely sidelined the complaint in the case...And that we don't even know who the senior police officer is dealing with now in connection of this case," they complained.
They pointed out that they petitioned the state law enforcement regulatory personalities because the pieces of evidence available to them clearly shows that the Abirem District Police Commander and his men have felt reluctantly to pursue the case.
"The senior police officer failed to ensure that he gets the two police offices of Abirem District Police Command to face the full rigours of the law of assaulting the small boy to death," the family noted.
In this regard, the family stated that the members of the family have demanded justice to ensure the the arrest and prosecution of the innocent boy's murderers .
"We are also demanding for the arrest and prosecution of the Manager and the Owner of the Washing Bay, Mr Agyei who looked unconcerned when the police officers were beating the boy at his premises," parts of the petition read.
He pointed out that "The family members categorically stated that, they will reject any skewed autopsy report due to the actions and prejudicial comments by senior police officers and in the unlikely events that the family concerns were not met and they will also reject the body of the deceased for the police to burry him and organize his funeral, so that they can properly clean their mess and conceal all evidence."
He called on the Ghana Police Administration to immediately transfer or sanction the Abirem District Police Commander for exhibiting gross misconduct, incompetence and also attempting to shield criminals.
To this end, the family further called on President Akufo-Addo to set up commission of an independent commission of enquiry to investigate the case or transferring the case to the national headquarters of the police CID since the family have lost trust in the both Abirem District and Akem Oda Divisional Police Commanders to do a proper job.
