Kidnapped girl's family rejects call from President Akufo-Addo; say it is unnecessary

- The news of the final DNA test results of the kidnapped Takoradi girls have left the country in shock

- The group of people mostly affected by the news is the family of the four girls who got missing at different times in 2018

- The Quayson family, one of the families of the kidnapped girls, has however expressed anger and resentment at the government to the extent of snubbing a call from Akufo-Addo

The Quayson family, one of the families in the kidnapping saga, seems to be in a state of shock and disbelief after the announcement by the police concerning the death of the four kidnapped Takoradi girls.

According to reports, the family of Ruth Quayson, one of the kidnapped girls, snubbed a call from Ghana’s president, Nana Akufo-Addo after the results were made public.

The president reportedly had called through senior police officers who were at the family’s house to console them, but uncle of the deceased said the call came too late and wasn’t needed.

The family was also furious that the police only made verbal communication to them on the outcome of the DNA report on skeletons discovered in August without any documentary proof.

“Just like that”, Quayson’s uncle Kwame Tawiah, who sounded bitter, told Connect FM’s Paa Kwesi Simpson in an interview moment after the police left the family house Monday evening.

He confirmed that while the police officers were with the family, President Akufo-Addo called and wanted to talk to them.

“My sister asked them who is Akufo-Addo, does he know the families whose children are missing?” he recalled, “Akufo-Addo called on the phone but nobody spoke to him”

Speaking in Fante, Mr. Tawiah explained, “We rejected it because it is not today that Akufo-Addo will call to talk to us about the matter. My brother it is sad that Nana Akufo-Addo will call evening by this time.”
