CID boss bringing police into disrepute – Security Analyst

A security analyst Festus Aboagye has criticised the utterances of the Director General of the Police CID saying her actions are bringing the Police force into disrepute.

It comes after the CID head COP Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo-Danquah backtracked on her claim that she knows the whereabouts of the three missing Takoradi girls.

The Police chief says her recent comment over the three missing Takoradi girls has been misconstrued by Ghanaians.

She said her claim that the CID knew the whereabouts of the girls was only intended to give hope to the families.

“I made that comment because I wanted to give hope to the mothers but I have been misconstrued. Maybe people didn’t understand me. For timelines, I cannot say.

“I just want to assure everyone that the search is still on. We are not sleeping at all,” She told Accra-based Atinka TV.

Reacting to the comment, Mr Aboagye said the CID boss should have apologized when she had the opportunity in her latest interview.

“What she should have said was to apologise and said I’m sorry I didn’t know where they are and I said so.

“She has thrown the profession into great disrepute. Tomorrow when she tells us anything we will not believe. Her apology now is very essential. She has created a bit more anxiety for the parents of the girls,” he told Morning Starr host Francis Abban Monday.

In April she told the media in Accra that “We know where the girls are” before urging the families of the three girls to “keep on keeping on”.

She added that “It’s taken us over three months to even identify where the ladies are, and what we don’t want to do is do anything that will jeopardise the safety of that. So we are working very hard. All the stakeholders who are supposed to be on board are on board and hopefully, the girls will be brought back safe and sound.”

Meanwhile, the families of the victims are to embark on a demonstration to pile more pressure on the government to bring the girls back.

Priscilla Blessing Bentum was first kidnapped on August 17th, 2018, while Ruthlove Quayeson was kidnapped on December 4, 2018, and Priscilla Mantsebeah Koranchie also kidnapped on December 21st, 2018.
