The Minister for Gender, Children and Social Protection, Cynthia Morrison, has said she doesn’t have to bring back the kidnapped Takoradi girls because she is not part of the security services.
According to the minister, the security is in charge of retrieving the missing girls, while hers is to “make sure people are safe.”
“I’m not the security, I don’t have to bring the girls back. My job is to make sure that human beings are safe. The security is working on it so I can’t give the information out,” she told Joy News.
Asked where the police have reached with their investigations, the Gender Minister said she cannot give out so much information because the culprits may be listening.
She, however, reaffirmed that the police are closing in on the suspects of the kidnappings.
“I won’t tell you [where the police have reached]. I can give you Madam Tiwaa’s number, you call her from here and she’ll tell you exactly where they’ve reached.
“If they want to give you the information, then it would be from the security. But from my end it will be so wrong to tell you what they are doing because the people (culprits) are also watching,” Madam Morrison added.
Ghanaians have been alarmed in recent months following reports of numerous kidnapping cases around the country.
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.
