Celebrated Pathologist and former Director-General of the Ghana Health Service (GHA), Professor Agyemang Badu Akosa has thrown a challenge to the police hierarchy after their public announcement of the DNA test results confirming the death of the four missing Takoradi girls.

The health practitioner doubts the result which was announced by the acting Inspector General of Police, James Oppong-Boanuh on Monday.

“DNA is the highest level of integrity. Who can swear by this?” He questioned the police service in an interview on NeatFM's "Ghana Montie" show.

The police on Monday announced that human remains it had found from a septic earlier this year were those of the four missing Takoradi girls after DNA analysis. But many have doubted the results including the families of the girls and many other individuals.
