- Haruna Iddrisu, the minority leader in Parliament, has hinted of plans to drag the IGP to the House
- The motive for the action is to help provide answers to the case of the missing Takoradi girls
The minority side in Parliament has hinted of plans of dragging the Inspector General of Police, David Asante Appeatu, to the House, to answer questions about the three missing Takoradi girls.
According to the minority leader, Haruna Iddrisu, this would give the IGP the opportunity to inform MPs of progress made with regard to the case.
He added that months after the girls disappeared, it appears as if there is no solid information from the police administration.
“The matter of the kidnapped girls, need national attention. Mr. Speaker, I think next time we come, we will file a motion to compel the Inspector General of Police through the minister of Interior to report to this House to tell us what steps, beyond the rhetoric we have heard, they are taking to rescue those children,” he said.
The families of the missing girls have demanded swift investigations into the case, and ensure that the girls are returned.
According to a Citinewsroom.com report, they have also called for the prosecution of all those found to have had a hand in the disappearance of the girls.
Sam Udoetuk Wills, the Nigerian allegedly behind the kidnapping, has meanwhile been sentenced to 18 months in prison for escaping from police cell.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that the police have introduced liaison officers to the families of the girls.
This compelled the families of the girls to call off a demonstration planned to demand answers from the security agency.
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has also said that he is determined to deal with the growing phenomenon of kidnapping.
He said his government is taking some decisions concerning the incident, which will ensure that the crime does not become a characteristic of the Ghanaian society.
