“Bull Dog since u r bringing out secrets. You will tell Ghanaians. What happen to Fenick’s Murder!! And I am not joking about this time!! I am ready to tell the court about what you told me about you and your men and how you planned that foolish act, get ready. This Akufo-Addo won’t give you a murder chance to be on our streets!!!
