A third suspect in the case regarding the murdered Takoradi girls has been extradited to Ghana to face court action.
Chika Innoidim John was arrested in August 2019 by Nigeria’s National Agency for the Prohibition in Trafficking of Persons.
He is believed to be part of a cross border criminal gang responsible for the abduction and subsequent murder of the teenage girls.
This brings the number of arrested suspects to three, following the earlier arrests of prime suspect Samuel Udoetuk Wills and his accomplice John Orji.
The police tracked Chika’s phone calls to the prime suspect Samuel Udoetuk, leading to the discovery of the remains of the victims.
Joy News reports that the third suspect arrived in Ghana on board an Africa World Airline flight on Wednesday, September 18, 2019.
Chika will be put before court on Friday, September 20, 2019, together with the other suspects Samuel Udoetuk and John Orji.
The girls – Priscilla Blessing Bentum, Ruth Love Quayson and Priscilla Koranchie – were kidnapped in Takoradi between August and December 2018.
Meanwhile YEN.com.gh earlier reported that 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.
