Later that day on Eye-Witness News on Citi 97.3 FM, YEN.com.gh monitored an interview with two parents and one grandparent of the various girls who expressed their dissatisfaction over the ruling.

According to them, it is not apparent that the girls are indeed dead and they would prefer to speak to the perpetrators over the issue rather than have them eliminated with no explanation.

"I don't believe my granddaughter is dead. We were given remains of what was supposed to be her skeletons but they were longer than her height. The skeleton also had teeth that my grandaughter didn't have when she was kidpapped. I don't believe she is dead," one of them said.

The two criminals have been given 30 days within which they can appeal the sentence that has been slapped on them.
