Three families of the four Takoradi girls who have been declared dead by the Police have stormed Accra and are in a crunch meeting with the Inspector-General of Police, James Oppong Boanuh as they demand remains of the girls for further DNA analysis.
The families – Quayeson, Bentum and Abakah, have disputed claims by the Police that the remains retrieved in a septic tank in a house once occupied by prime kidnap suspect Samuel Udotek Wills are those of the girls.
The families insist nothing will persuade them to accept the results of the DNA test conducted by the police.
They are expecting to be given a copy of the DNA results, as they claim the police only gave them verbal information that the DNA test confirmed that the bones retrieved were that of their relatives.
At the time of filing this report, Madam Mary, a family member of Priscila Bentum one of the deceased girls, told Kasapa News Bonohene Baffuor Awuah that the IGP has asked that they are taken to the Police Laboratory to view the bones, following which all their nagging questions will be answered.
In September 2019, the Ghana Police service informed 4 families in Takoradi in the Western Region of Ghana that DNA test conducted on some human remains discovered into the course of police investigations into the disappearance 4 missing girls have turned positive, as the remains of the girls.
A special police operation led to the discovery and exhumation of the bodies of the three missing Takoradi girls at Kasawrodo in the Western region.
The bodies were retrieved from a manhole in the house of the main suspect, Samuel Willis.
The whereabouts of the three missing Takoradi girls – Ruthlove Quayson, Priscilla Blessing Bentum and Priscilla Koranchie – who were kidnapped between August and December 2018 had become a mystery several months after the issue gained national prominence.
