In another news, YEN.com.gh has published that Ghanaians have slammed the police for not rescuing the kidnapped Takoradi girls yet.
In the report, some celebrities and journalists took to social media to express their disappointment at the police for the poor handling of the Takoradi kidnap case.
They claim that the police have failed to rescue the girls even though a suspect has been arrested in relation to the case.
When it was reported that some girls in the Sekondi-Takoradi had gone missing, the police arrested one Nigerian by name Samuel Utudoek-Wills as a prime suspect.
Even though the suspect broke out of cells and absconded he was re-arrested and is still in police grips. However, the girls have still not been found.
