- The police has disclosed that the three girls that have been kidnapped since last year were lured with phones and jobs
- According to the police, their investigations reveal the suspect had a personal relationship with the girls
The Western Regional Police Command has revealed that a suspected kidnapper who abducted some teenage girls in Takoradi had an acquaintance with all his victims.
Three girls - Priscilla Blessing Bentum, Ruth Love Quayson and Priscilla Koranchie – have been kidnapped in Takoradi within the last five months.
The suspect has, however, been identified as a Nigerian national called Samuel Wilson Udoterg.
The police said all three abducted girls were in “constant communication” with the suspected kidnapper via mobile phone.
Speaking at a news conference, the Western Regional Police Commander, Vincent Dedzoe, said the suspect was in communication with his victims.
He explained that the suspect promised two of the girls jobs and another was promised a mobile phone.
DCOP Dedzo said Samuel Udoterg Willison has a criminal record, having also been convicted for kidnapping in Nigeria.
The police chief further revealed that the suspect has named four of his accomplices who played roles in the kidnapping.
This comes after DCOP Dedzo said all attempts to get the suspect to talk have proved futile.
Speaking to Accra-based Joy FM, he said the police has not been able to extract anything from the kidnapper despite all efforts.
“We have tried all means to talk to him. In the initial stages, he took us to Kasoa [Central region suburb] and we combed the whole of Kasoa yet he could not lead us to where the victims are,” he said.
“He is not even ready to talk. He will tell you he doesn’t know where the victims are.”
