“The funeral rites were done in Dansoman, but am the one who gave orders that they should dig his grave for him to be buried here, but since his wife has refused to hand over the chain to me, never will I allow the body to be buried here.They should go and bury him in Dansoman where the funeral rites were performed," she added
