The suspects were one trader identified as Abiba who had purchased 15 cartons of chicken from one Kwadwo Asare, an operator of a cold store at Adakwame Lorry Station.

Madam Henrietta narrated that a security guard of KMA became suspicious due to the foul smell from the chicken being transported by Abiba to her intended destination at Asuofua, Adakwame and Kejetia.
