The Director-General of the Criminal Investigations Department DCOP Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo-Danquah has told the media that the police service knows the whereabouts of three kidnapped Takoradi girls.
Speaking at a press conference in Accra on Tuesday, April 2, 2019, DCOP Addo-Danquah also appealed to families of the victims to “keep on keeping on.”
"We know where the girls are", the Director-General of the CID, DCOP Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo-Danquah told journalists.
"It's taken us over three months to even identify where the ladies are, and what we don't want to do is do anything that will jeopardise the safety of that. So we are working very hard. All the stakeholders are supposed to be on board are on board and hopefully, the girls will be brought back safe and sound,” she added.
Between August-December 2018, three girls were kidnapped in Takoradi leading to a #bringbackourTaadigirls campaign which caught the attention of most Ghanaians.
The missing girls are 18-year-old Priscilla Mantebea Koranchie, last seen on December 21, 2018; 21-year-old Priscilla Blessing Bentum, last seen on August 17, 2018; and 18-year-old Ruth Love Quayson, last seen on December 4, 2018.
Meanwhile, the man suspected to be behind the kidnappings, Samuel Udoetuk-Wills, who broke cell and escaped from the custody of the Takoradi Metropolitan Police Command on December 30, 2018, was re-arrested by the police.
