Speaking with Citizen Kofi monitored by, he said, someone has told him his granddaughter is alive and has been seen around Sowutuom, a suburb of Accra.

This comes a day after the IGP, Mr James Oppong-Boanuh announced at a press conference that the DNA test conducted on the human remains retrieved at one of the kidnappers’ house in Takoradi has proven positive.

According to Mr Emmanuel Abeka, the test results cannot be entirely true since he was phoned last Friday and told that his granddaughter has been seen at Sowtuom loitering about.

“The police IGP and his cohorts are very insensitive! How can you hold an issue like this without first consulting the immediate families,” Mr Abeka questioned.

The Ag. Inspector of General of Police, James Oppong-Boanuh, however, said at a press conference Monday, that the results of the DNA test on remains retrieved in Takoradi have been relayed to the families along with condolences.
