She added that the bereaved family was awaiting a post-mortem report before its next line of action.

“The corpse has been taken to Korle Bu for postmortem to determine exactly what my daughter was injected with. Even a chicken won’t be treated like she was. We will decide what we do after we receive the postmortem report,” she added.
