“We've all gone back to sleep after Ayawaso shame. But tonight, a very worrying national issue is keeping women in the Western Region sleepless,” Atinka FM journalist Saddick Adams, wrote on his Facebook page.

All the mothers in Takoradi are staying awake tonight. They're holding vigil for the three kidnapped girls. Police have no clue, still. Let's remember them,” he added.

Ghanaians have been alarmed in recent months following reports of numerous kidnapping cases around the country.

Three girls - Priscilla Blessing Bentum, Ruth Love Quayson and Priscilla Koranchie – have been kidnapped in Takoradi within the last five months.

All three are yet to be found, although the prime suspect, identified as a Nigerian national Samuel Wilson Udoterg, has been apprehended by the police.

The suspects were reportedly arrested at Nuaso in Odumase following a swoop by a team of Police officers.

All 15 suspects have since been sent to the Police Headquarters in Accra as investigations continue into the case.
