- Attorney General, Gloria Akuffo says information put out there about the missing Taadi girls could put their lives in danger
- She noted once news reaches the captors of the girls that their whereabouts had been traced, they would relocate
The Attorney General, Gloria Akuffo, says it is regrettable that the police shared information about the whereabouts of the missing Takoradi girls with the public.
According to her, such a move was wrong and could put the lives of the teenage girls in further danger.
Ghanaians have been alarmed in recent months following reports of numerous kidnapping cases around the country.
Speaking on the subject, the Attorney General said the police were wrong to disclose information about the whereabouts of the missing girls.
“That signals those who have them and they could change their location,” Mrs. Akuffo said on Joy FM’s Personality Profile Show.
“You could even endanger their lives…[and] I find it even regrettable that the information went out that they have been found,” she added.
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 Director General of the CID, COP Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo-Danquah, disclosed that the police had discovered the whereabouts of the girls.
“We know where the girls are,” she said, adding that “they are safe...very soon they will be brought back home.”
However, it has been over three weeks since the CID boss made the statement, but the girls are still yet to be found.
