A mother has narrated how the police asked her to “go and pray” when she reported a case about her missing son.
Gifty Atwei Laryea said the police has been lackadaisical in helping her find her son who went missing on February 18, 2019.
She explained that a neighbour sent her son to buy cassava but the boy never returned home afterwards.
The shea butter trader said when she confronted the neighbour, he told her the boy brought the money without the cassava.
The mother then reported the case at the Osu Police Station, but the neighbour had eloped by that time the report was made.
She said the police later arrested the suspect but allowed him to go after taking his statement, declaring him innocent.
“When I reported to the police that I suspect the neigbour knows the whereabouts of my child, they said I should pray and that they will pray with me,” she said.
“I suspect the man knows the whereabouts of my son. He should just tell me where he is,” she added.
Describing her missing child, she said he is slim, dark and tall, and was in an ash T-shirt and jeans trouser when he left home.
