Families of the four Takoradi kidnapped girls confirmed dead on Thursday visited the Inspector General of Police (IGP), James Oppong Boanuh to request for the skeletal remains of the girls for an independent DNA test.
The families were enthusiastic and full of hope about returning back to Takoradi with a copy of the DNA test and the skeletal remains retrieved by the police around the residence of prime suspect Samuel Udotek Wills prior to their meeting with the IGP.
Speaking in an interview with Joy News after the closed door meeting, Spokesperson for the families, Michael Hayford stated their hope has been dashed out.
“The police had gone contrary to an agreement made but instead is asking for a court order before handing over the skeletal remains and copy of the DNA test conducted,” he said.
Meanwhile, they were given access to the mortuary to have a look at the skeletal remains for the first time since its discovery during which some of the relative stated the bones are not those of the girls.
A delegation of about 20 people was transported to Accra from Takoradi for the meeting with the IGP.
