The decision also comes on the back of the appointment of liaison officers to facilitate communications between the families and the police.

Per a report by Citinewsroom.com, the Western Regional Police Commander, DCOP Vincent Redeemer Dedjo, on Wednesday, May 1, 2019, led a delegation of eight police personnel to the family of Ruth Love Quayson, one of the kidnapped Takoradi girls to introduce the liaison officers to the family.

The spokesperson of the families, Michael Hayford Grant, said they were not allowed to ask questions; neither were they briefed on the whereabouts of the girls.

He indicated that they were assured of a meeting with officials from the police headquarters in Accra on Friday, May 3, 2019.

Rebecca Quayson, a sister to Ruth Love Quayson, one of the kidnapped girls, said she is happy that finally, the police introduced to them, three officers who are going to liaise with them on what is happening with investigation on the whereabouts of the girls.

She expressed the hope that the police would bring them good news during their promised visit on Friday.
