In his statement, he wrote;
” The social media commentators suddenly turned experts on litigation attacking ppl signing to pardon a girl who was totally oblivious to the consequences on her actions…. pls your take doesn’t matter to anyone.
Your take is not absolute, it’s relative. It’s only your opinion based on your sad situation. We don’t want to hear how u think she deserves anything”
Dj Mensah also reacting in a statement after signing the petition, urged other sympathizers to do same.
According to DKB in a Facebook post, individuals who wish to help the embattled actress and her son can reach them through him.
