“Two months later, my son was kidnapped on his way to church only for us to find him dead with knife wounds all over his body and a medical report also revealed knives were inserted in his anus too. So we called for Blankson’s arrest because of his threats,” he narrated.

The suspect is in police custody assisting with investigations.
