- The families of the kidnapped Takoradi girls are pleading with government to also show commitment in efforts to rescue their children
- Meanwhile, a second suspect in the unresolved kidnapping of three girls in Takoradi in the Western region, has been remanded
The families of the three kidnapped Takoradi girls are urging the Ghana government to show and apply the same energy and urgency used in finding the two Canadian women in rescuing their children as well.
According to a sister of one of the kidnapped Takoradi girls, Rebecca Quayson, government appears more interested in the life of the foreigner than the Ghanaian.
She said the families are gravely disappointed in the government for its lackadaisical approach in finding their three girls.
“We are already disappointed the way they have handled our sisters’ issue, because we all know our leaders in Ghana treat foreigners in a special way; we are very disappointed and we are warning government, at the end of the day we are the citizens here and we will vote,” Rebecca told Citi News on Wednesday, June 12, 2019.
National security personnel on June 12 rescued two Canadian girls who were abducted in the Ashanti Regional Capital, Kumasi, on June 4, 2019.
The Canadian girls were kidnapped at the Kumasi Royal Gulf Club, Ahodwo around 8:25 pm.
The police in a statement said the two Canadians were aged 19 and 20. They were in Ghana as volunteers with an NGO known as Youth Challenge International.
