The opposition National Democratic Congress has expressed condolences to the family of four kidnapped Takoradi girls who have been confirmed dead.
NDC General Secretary Johnson Asiedu Nketia, speaking on Joy News programme PM Express, said the lives of the girls have been “cut short prematurely”.
His comments come after the Acting Inspector General of Police, James Oppong-Boanuh addressed a press conference announcing an end to the search.
“Maybe we could have seen a president or prime minister coming from these girls,”he said.
According to Asiedu Nketia, the one-year wait for closure of the saga could be described as “a very traumatizing experience” for the families.
He said throughout the saga, the “reputation of the police has been so badly damaged” he is unsure whether to accept or deny the credibility of the DNA tests.
Giving the police the benefit of the doubt, however, the NDC General Secretary hoped that “what they said was true.”
In a press conference organised by the Ghana Police service, the Inspector General of Police, James Oppong Boanuh confirmed the fears of the family and the general public.
According to him, the result of the DNA test proved that the skeleton found were that of the missing girls.
