The Quayeson and Bentum Families whose kidnapped girls have been confirmed dead say they want foreign experts to carry out the DNA test instead of what the Ghana police has done.

Addressing a news conference at Diabene, a suburb in the Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolis in the Western Region of Ghana, John Entsie said the affected families never saw the said remains neither were the DNA report shown them before the announcement by the IGP.

“First of all we are disappointed in the Commander-in-Chief of the Ghana Armed Forces for the manner in which he has handled this whole unfortunate kidnapping story, he has demonstrated to us that ballot boxes are valuable to him than the lives of our sisters.

“If he want us to believe that his hands clean in this development, then he should quickly fire CID Boss COP Tiwaa Addo Danquah and Bryan Acheampong for making us believe that our sisters were alive”, John Entsie demanded.

They have also issued a one-week ultimatum to the police administration to release the said report to the families to enable them carry out their own independent test or incur their wrath.

The acting Inspector-General of Police, James Oppong Boanuh, on Monday confirmed that results of DNA tests conducted on some human parts exhumed in a house in Takoradi are that of the four missing girls.

A special police operation led to the discovery and exhumation of the bodies of the four missing Takoradi girls at Kasawrodo in the Western region, Starr News confirmed in August this year.
