Missing Takoradi girls: Former police boss explains the reason behind CID boss’ controversy

- A retired police officer, Paul Ayuvi, has revealed why the CID is finding it difficult to trace the missing Takoradi girls

- In his opinion, the CID is running a poor intelligence system hence the challenges being faced

A former intelligence officer, Paul Avuyi, has argued that there is a reason behind the recent controversy surrounding the director-general of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID), Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo-Danquah.

According to him, the disappearance of the three Takoradi girls and its related issues were because of intelligence failure.

In his opinion, poor intelligence systems are largely to blame for the current situation the CID boss finds herself in.

Speaking on PM Express on Wednesday, May 15, 2019, Avuyi stated that over the years, intelligence gathering has not been given the priority it deserves in the operations of the CID.

Per a Myjoyonline.com report, Avuyi added that the delivery of the information on the missing girls has been in bad taste, but said a framework of poor intelligence gathering within the CID lies at the heart of the COP Addo-Danquah’s gaffe.

COP Addo-Danquah has been in the news for contradicting herself with respect to the fate of the missing girls.

YEN.com.gh earlier reported that she claimed police officials knew where the girls are , but later called on their families to keep hoping for their return.

She defended herself by saying she may have been misconstrued because she spoke a local language.

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has meanwhile asked her to produce the girls in 14 days or resign from her position.

The minority side in Parliament has also hinted of plans to bring the Inspector General of Police (IGP), David Asante Appeatu, to Parliament, to answer questions about the girls.
