The minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection, Cynthia Morrison, has described a Nigerian being held for allegedly kidnapping three Ghanaian girls in Takoradi, Western Region, as “a naughty boy" who wanted to exploit people and get money.
Morrison said she came to that conclusion after her one-on-one interaction with the suspect, who is currently behind bars in Takoradi.
Earlier, YEN.com.gh reported that the police in the Western Region have finally found a first-year student of the Tarkwa Senior High School who went missing on Thursday, January 24, 2019.
Classfmonline.com reports that one of the three victims, 18-year-old Ruth Love Quayson, was last seen on December 4, 2018.
The second victim, 21-year-old Priscilla Blessing Bentum, was last seen on 17 August 2018, while the third victim, 18-year-old Priscilla Mantebea Koranchie, was last seen on 21 December 2018.
But in a radio interview, the minister was quoted as saying: “He is just a naughty boy who wanted to exploit and then the whole thing blew out of proportion. He doesn’t have any serious job and he knows money, so, will use any which way to get money and he’s not alone."
Morrison noted that the suspect has begun talking but she refused to disclose the details of the conversation “for security reasons.”
She further expressed confidence that the missing girls will be found alive and reunited with their families, stressing that the government and the police were doing everything possible for that to happen.
The police have reportedly set up a special task force looking at expediting the release of the victims.
