Government has disclosed that it would provide the necessary support to the bereaved families of the deceased Takoradi girls.
This news comes after the DNA tests were revealed that the human parts found in cesspit tanks in Takoradi were actually the remains of the 4 missing girls.
Addressing the media, the Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, sympathized with the bereaved families.
“I think it is heartbreaking to receive this news which is contrary to all our best hopes as a country. Obviously it is a shocking moment first for the families and to the nation at large.
“Our government through the President has had the opportunity to express condolences to their families directly and they will continue to engage and provide the families with the necessary support,”he said.
An announcement by the Acting Inspector General of Police, James Oppong-Boanuh on Monday evening, September 16, 2019, confirmed the death of the missing girls; Ruth Abakah, Priscilla Kuranchie, Ruth Love Quayson and Priscilla Blessing Bentum.
The Ghana Police Service appears to have fallen out of favour with a section of Ghanaians following the confirmation of the death of the three Takoradi girls.
A video trending on social media shows some officers being hooted at and chased away from Takoradi by locals.
The girls – Priscilla Blessing Bentum, Ruth Love Quayson and Priscilla Koranchie – were kidnapped in Takoradi between August and December 2018.
