However the father of the decease, Yaw Adugyemfi who was interviewed by the media uncovered that the son was murdered because of his iPhone.
Emmanuel who is a very good friend of Nana
Gyamfi told police that he owed the deceased some money and the deceased demanded he pays to enable him to prepare for school.

interrogation confessed to the police of the
crime, his room was searched only to find the deceased’s iPhone 11.
