- Most people might probably not be aware of the identity of 19-year-old Ruth Abakah who was reportedly missing on July 29, 2018
- It has been more than a year since her family got to know about her whereabouts since she left home
- The slow pace of investigations as supposedly caused by her grandfather is tearing the family apart
According to the grandfather of the missing girl, Emmanuel Cobbinah Anzah, Ruth’s mother, has refused to talk or have anything to do with him over the missing girl as she believed he did not push enough for the police to devote equal attention to their case as has been done for the other three missing girls.
Mr Anzah, said he would not be able to lead them to his daughter and would rather give them the directions and contact number for the investigative team to reach her.
The Western Regional Police Command invited Mr Anzah yesterday, August 7, 2019 to seek information and also inform him about the discovery at Nkroful, where the skeletal remains of a yet-to-be-identified person was retrieved from a well in an uncompleted building.
The remains are suspected to be that of the 19-year-old Miss Abakah who was reported missing by her grandfather in July 2018.
Mr Anzah said he lodged a complaint with the police on July 29, 2018, after his granddaughter, failed to return from her Sunday school when it was obvious church was over.
“She failed to return home after church on that fateful July 29, later we received a call from a lady who said our granddaughter was with them and that they had kidnapped her and she would only be released after a ransom between GH¢20,000 and GH¢30,000 had been paid” Mr Anzah stated.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that a body had been found in a well at Nkroful new site in Takoradi, in the Western Region.
The remains were found at an uncompleted building where Samuel Willis Udutoek was re- arrested after his jail break in connection with missing persons.
Investigations are underway to establish the identity of the remains while police continue with all angles of the ongoing investigation.
