The Chief Press Secretary said the law would take its course in the investigation of Teshaku, stressing the decision of Governor Samuel Ortom to uphold justice while intensifying the fight against crime in the state.
He said the Governor deserved commendation for his credentials on transparency and honesty in handling issues even when those close to him are involved.
