This is just too much for one person to handle. She needs our support. I’m going to appeal to everyone to support her… Video coming up soon.”
The video he was referring to is finally out. In the video, A plus is seen calling on everyone to support the woman. He also provided different platforms where the woman could be reached.
The Tragic incident took place on June 3 at Mrs Botwe’s home while she was away. She had attended her mother’s post burial celebration somewhere away from home; but on coming back, met the demise of her entire family. A raging fire had engulfed their flat, consuming her entire family who could not escape because of the burglar proof, which prevented rescuers from breaking in. A mass burial was held for them on June 7.
