20-year-old, Georgina Ama Amenyo, a Junior High School student have been reportedly missing since she left home on January 12, 2019.
The police said a cover cloth and a pair of shoes belonging to the missing girl were found in the room of her 19-year-old boyfriend, Joseph Prah.
Currently, Joseph Prah is being held as the suspect, but he denies knowing the whereabouts of the girl despite being the last person she was seen with.
Explaining further, the Eastern Regional Police PRO, DSP Ebenezer Tetteh, said the suspect admits to accommodating the girl but said he saw her off the day after she arrived.
“When the girl failed to return home, the mother informed the police and Joseph was apprehended. He denied knowledge of the whereabouts of the girl and insisted that he saw her off on Sunday.” DSP Tetteh said.
This follows the kidnapping of seven teenage girls in the Takoradi and its neighboring towns in the last five months.
The Police has so far managed to arrest a suspect, identified as Nigerian national Samuel Wilson Udoterg, who is believed to be holding three of the girls.
Meanwhile, the minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection, Cynthia Mamle Morrison, has stated that the three girls kidnapped from Sekondi-Takoradi in the Western Region are still alive.
According to graphic.com.gh, Morrison added that the suspect, Samuel Udoetuk Wills, has begun to volunteer information to the police.
