‘In terms of country where an investigation is leading, I think we know where the Takoradi kidnapped girls are…And so people will put the question if you know where the girls are, then go and bring them. It’s not as easy as that and that is where I want to clarify so you don’t put it in the minds of people that we say we know where they are. We know the country they are in and we are doing everything possible to bring them back.

The information we have now, they are fine, they don’t wish to be where they were but we know that they are fine, if it was otherwise, we would have known’. He revealed.

He indicated that they knew the hideouts of the kidnappers of the Canadian women hence their arrest adding that the Takoradi girls will also be rescued.

‘We knew the Canadians were in Ghana, we knew they had not crossed our borders, we knew that even though we had trailed the kidnappers from Aflao to Ashaiman to Kumasi and certain sections of Kumasi, we knew that they were not in Ashaiman, we knew they were in Kumasi, then we drilled down until we got to a house,’ the Minister emphasized in the interview monitored by
