A search has been able to retrieve the bodies of two of the girls remaining one but what has angered and caused the residents is the order given by the Fetish Priest, Nana Afram who worships the River god, who is demanding to take possession of the body of the third girl and solely bury it when it’s retrieved.

He claims he’ll use the body to perform some rights to stop such unfortunate incident from happening in the town
