Family of Lily Asigbetse, the Achimota student who was killed by her friend, has slammed the three-year sentence given to the culprit.
According the deceased mother, Vivian Donkor, she and her family are very angry because the sentence is way too lenient and they are not ready to leave the matter to rest.
Lily’s mother expressed her disgust at the sentence in an interview with Kasapa FM.
“How can our hurtful feelings be assuaged when someone who has killed our daughter is sentenced to only three years in a correctional home,” she said.
“We’re very angry over the jail term, the family is meeting soon to see what next step we can take. We’re not leaving this matter lying down and we’re not ready to forgive the boy and his family.
“Since day one, his mother never said the truth insisting that it was a knockout that hit and killed my daughter and not a gun.
“Even when Lily was shot and was writhing in pain in a pool of blood, it took the boy and his family three hours before they took Lily to the hospital and even this was after her elder sister had called her [Lily’s] phone several times which rang unanswered.”
Lily’s mother added that she is convinced her daughter was killed intentionally and her death was never a manslaughter.
“Is that how to treat someone’s daughter who has visited your home? We’re convinced they deliberately killed,” she said.
