Police haven’t handled kidnap case expeditiously – Ex IGP Kudalor

Former Inspector General of Police (IGP) John Kudalor holds the view that the Police Service has not handled the case of the three Takoradi girls with the alacrity it deserves.

The Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Police Service on Friday night confirmed the retrieval of human parts from a septic tank at an uncompleted building previously occupied by Samuel Udotek Wills, the main suspect in the Kidnapping of the three Takoradi girls.

A statement signed by the PRO of the CID, DSP Juliana Obeng, said: “the discovered human parts would be sent to the Forensic Science Laboratory of the Ghana Police Service for analysis and further investigation.”

A large section of the public has lambasted the Police CID as they believe the matter has not been dealt with swiftly as it is almost a year after the girls went missing after being picked up between August and December 2018.

Speaking to Citi News on the matter, the Ex- IGP John Kudalor said though the case has dragged for a while, he was confident that finality would be brought soon.

“Kidnapping is a high degree crime in which the Police should have acted expeditiously. I’ll say there was a gap and that gap I don’t think you can put all on the shoulders of the Police. When they were in contact with the kidnappers they should have brought in the Police, these crimes any little gap can bring a very big problem."

"I’m saying the police has not been fast as they should have been but they’ve always given reasons why it happened so but it’s rather unfortunate. But let’s see that they don’t relent in seeing the girls because these DNA test will let us know whether the matter has been concluded or not.”

The whereabouts of the three missing Takoradi girls – Ruthlove Quayson, Priscilla Blessing Bentum, and Priscilla Koranchie – who were kidnapped between August and December 2018 have been a mystery several months after the issue gained national prominence.
