Family of Ruth Abeka, one of the four murdered Takoradi girls, has rubbished claims that their daughter was adopted.
Emmanuel Kwamena Baiden, uncle to Ruth said the family has decided to disassociate itself from the stance of the remaining three who are rejecting the DNA test results conducted by the Criminal Investigations Department of the Ghana Police Service.
According to him, the decision was not based on the claims that Ruth was an adopted child but because there is very little they can do, other than bring closure to the issues.
“Ruth is the last born of her mother who happens to be my sister. Her father died right after she was born and so her grandmother took her and that is where she has stayed all her life and so she could not have been adopted and so Ghanaians should disregard that lie,” he told Accra based Okay FM, monitored by Adomonline.com.
Mr Baiden explained why the family has chosen to accept the findings of the police: “The DNA test results are very heart-wrenching to our family, but we accept it. We don’t have time to demand for any second DNA test. Everything is in the hands of God as there is nothing much we can do,” he said.
