Families of kidnapped girls demand their whereabouts from police

A sister to one of the kidnapped Takoradi girls says she will only believe that her sister, Ruth Quayson, is safe and sound when they have been reunited.

Nana Adwoa Quayson was reacting to claims by the CID boss DCOP Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo-Danquah that her outfit has been able to race the whereabouts of the missing girls, insisting that they are alive.

Speaking on Onua News, Nana Adwoa Quayson fears the comments by the CID boss may get the kidnappers jittery and possibly relocate the girls, which could worsen the situation.

Three girls, 15-year-old Priscilla Mantebea Koranchie; 18-year-old Ruth Love Quayson and 21-year-old Priscilla Blessing Bentum went missing late last year.

Their parents and relatives have been grieving, and accused the police of inaction in rescuing the three children.

But at a media briefing in Accra Tuesday, DCOP Tiwaa Addo-Danquah allayed the fears of the families of the girls, insisting they would be reconnected with their children soon.

“We know where they are and they are safe…So very soon they will be brought back home and they will go back to their family,” she assured.

However, relatives of the missing girls are still agitating.



Nana Adwoa Quayson wondered, “What prevents the police from reuniting them with their families. It’s been so many months, so if you have found the children, where are they?”

She was not happy the police failed to update them on the latest development even before going public with the information that the whereabouts of the girls have been located.

A Nigerian, Samuel Wills is currently being prosecuted for allegedly kidnapping the girls.
