In an attempt to interview Afoko niece lamented that “My Uncle deserves justice. Apparently, he was granted bail in 2020 but he is still there. I know a lot of people are surprised. He is not well. He is sick. We are asking that they give him bail so that he comes home for us to give him a special treatment”.
“My uncle is not being treated fairly and keeping in at the police custody is not the best but granting him a bail will do the family lots of good”, she stressed.
She urged the media to channel the attention on the ailing Gregory Afoko and also spreading the information let this man come out.
” He can be your brother or it could be you tomorrow. We want him to come out and get treatment. He is not well”
