According to a journalist Lydia Mensah who drew the attention of the police upon hearing the case told Citi News that Monica Kabenla and her husband Emma who are said to have been found of maltreating Rose could not fathom why she should stay with the neighbor for such a time in the farm before coming home, tied the hands of Rose who has dropped out of school while the husband beat her with the hot machete.
