- Family of fourth kidnapped T'di girl is calling for closure on the case of their daughter
- They believe the police have done the best they can to get their daughter reunited with them
- According to them the police helped them pay part of the ransom that was demanded of them
The family members of the fourth kidnapped girl, Ruth Abakah, have said that police officers at Kojokrom assisted them in the part payment of the ransom the kidnappers demanded in exchange for their daughter's release.
The family members said despite the efforts of the police, they were surprised that their daughter had not been reunited with them after a year.
Grandmother of the victim, Veronica Amzah, made this known in an interview with Citi News.
“We received a call from a group of people who were demanding GHc35,000 before they could release our relative. So, we reported this again to the police because we suspected it was kidnapping,” she said.
According to an older sister of the missing girl, Matilda, the family was informed of the fact that the victim's name had been used to register a mobile money account which they demanded the ransom to be paid on.
“The one who spoke to me said, they have used my sister’s name to register for MTN Mobile money so we should make the payment through that number which we did. We have so far paid GHc300 to them,” she added.
The family is however going through a heart breaking time as they are demanding full closure on the matter from the police.
“We want the police to be quick about their DNA tests so that we can be comfortable with our lives. Right now, we are downhearted,” she said.
The New Patriotic Party (NPP) member said he will “contract women to drill” the pastor following his comments against certain tribes.
“Fanti women are foolish sometimes and Ewes too are doormats. But for Ashanti women no!... If you marry Ashanti lady, you have imported problem for yourself forever. I have done research and it is so and I’ll never marry an Ashanti woman,” the preacher said in a recent sermon.
