- 3 weeks ago, the director general of the CID said the police knew where the kidnapped girls were
- 21 days on, the girls have not been re-united with their families
- A government appointee has however called on the family of the girls to be patient with the police
The Chief Executive Officer of the Microfinance and Small Loans Centre (MASLOC) Ghana, Stephen Amoah, has urged families of the three Takoradi kidnapped girls to exercise patience and give the police time to bring finality to the matter.
Amoah admits this may be a trying time for the families of the missing girls, but he believes it was equally important that information regarding the whereabouts of the girls be managed properly.
This he said should be done so as not to jeopardise the gains made so far.
“The other side that I think they [families of the girls] have to exercise patience, is about the communication between them and the police, because these are security matters”, he said
Speaking on TV3’s New Day, the MASLOC boss said it is unfortunate if indeed no government official had gone to the families of the girls to empathize with them as being reported in the media.
He apologised on the behalf of the government, claiming the government was committed to finding the girls and that President Akufo-Addo has been talking to security agencies to help find the girls.
The director general of the Criminal Investigations of Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service, Maame Tiwaa Addo-Danquah, had announced three weeks ago that the girls had been found.
But 21 days on, the families of the girls say they have since not heard from the police and have neither seen nor heard from their daughters.
They want the police to bring their children back to them since they claim to have found them.
