#JusticeForRuthEshun: Family of slain nurse grateful to Ghanaians for support


Family of Ruth Eshun, the 37-year-old Ghanaian nurse who was murdered in the Ashanti Regional town of Ayuom has expressed their profound gratitude to Ghanaians for their support.

The gruesome murder of the community health nurse on Monday, February 3, 2020, has not only thrown her family into a state of shock and mourning, but also the general public.

Her death sparked a social media campaign across the country as users demanded the arrest and prosecution of the perpetrators.

The Ashanti Regional Police Command said two persons have been arrested in connection with the case.

In a statement issued on Thursday, however, the family indicated that “While we remain calm based on the assurances from the police we continuously ask for swift investigations and seek justice be served”.

The family was also thankful to the Ghana Health Service (GHS), the Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwives Association (GRNA), the Community Health Nurses Association of Ghana, the Media, the Ghana Police Service and the general public.
