- Some members of the Bentum and Korankye families related to the kidnapped Takoradi girls, say the CID boss was in constant touch with them and did enough to assuage their pain
- According two families of the missing Takoradi girls, calls by the public for the sack of the CID boss is nonsensical
- The CID boss has come under a barrage of attacks over her attempts to offer hope to parents of the victims as the issue raged on
Some family members of the deceased Takoradi girls have rubbished calls for the CID boss to be sacked, insisting she did her best to save the victims.
Speaking on the subject, some family members of the deceased girls backed the CID boss to remain at post.
According to them, she did everything possible to get the girls back, adding that it is unfair to blame her for what happened.
“The truth is one. I’m saddened that one person is being unfairly blamed for what has happened. Whoever is pushing for her resignation is being misinformed,” Isaac Ackon, a cousin of Priscilla Bentum, said, as quoted by Starr News.
“We are just sensational in this country, we rather target people for nothing and when we are asked to prove we fumble.
“Whatever she ought to do she did it, she has been calling us, checking up and help us in every way possible. As a mother she did everything she could for us. We are targeting her unfairly, it is nonsensical for people to ask her to go, I will stand with her any day.”
Philip Korankye, a brother of one of the victims, added: “She was calling my father all the time. She has been helpful indeed. People don’t know what she was doing behind the scenes.”
COP Maame Tiwaa Addo-Danquah has come in for severe criticism for her handling of the three kidnapped teenage girls.
The girls – Priscilla Blessing Bentum, Ruth Love Quayson and Priscilla Koranchie – were kidnapped in Takoradi between August and December 2018.
However, on Monday, September 16, 2019, the police confirmed that all three were dead after DNA tests on remains retrieved from a septic tank in Takoradi proved to be that of the girls.
