Obinim begs for Collins Dauda's brother

I could not let escape my mind or let go a publication I

> He is begging the incoming President Nana Akufo Addo and the

> Any discerning Ghanaian expected the politicised and

> (BNI) office to have invited or arrested Abdulai Naaba,
> Collins Dauda’s brother for further interrogation but they
