The families of the three missing Takoradi girls have called for an independent DNA test following the retrieval of some skeletons from a septic tank behind the house of the key suspect, Samuel Odeoutuk Willis.
The mortal remains were believed to be that of the three girls who went missing between August and December 2018.
The spokesperson for the families, Michael Hayford Acquah, said the news had thrown the Sekondi-Takoradi municipality, especially Kansaworodo, into a state of shock.

He added that, the families of the girls are yet to come to terms with this latest development and that they had been invited to the Police Headquarters in Accra to meet with the police hierarchy for briefing.
“Until forensic and DNA investigations establish that the body parts found to be that of theirs, all we know is that our loved ones are still alive.”
Acquah added that if the police were convinced what they had found was a good lead to unravelling the mysteries surrounding the missing girls, the DNA and forensic investigations should be conducted in independent laboratories and not that of the police.
Meanwhile, sister of one of the Takoradi kidnapped girls, Kate Quayson is living in a state of denial, as she has challenged the media reports of the retrieval of human parts believed to be that of her sister and the two other girls.
According to her, she heard the story about the retrieval of some body parts suspected to be that of the girls yesterday and could not believe it.
Speaking to EIB’s Western Regional correspondent, Ohene Gyan, she said since no police officer called the family, they find it hard to believe.
