NPP Ashanti Regional Secretary, Sam Pyne

Ashanti Regional Secretary of the New Patriotic Party, Sam Pyne, says Ghanaians could have saved the situation of the four dead Takoradi girls if the police were assisted with information to build intelligence.

To Mr Sam Pyne, the police service does not work in isolation but rely largely on citizens for intelligence to succeed in their line of duty.

“Ghanaians did not help the police in their search for the Takoradi girls because information they could have picked cues from did not come in good time,” he said.

The comment follows the confirmation of their demise through a DNA test carried out by the police.

Speaking on Adom TV’s Badwam, Mr Sam Pyne said the announcement of a bounty on the suspects by the police revealed their commitment in their search for the girls.

“We are all blaming the police with the Criminal Investigations Department boss COP Maame Tiwaa Addo-Danquah in the limelight but Police are not magicians; they rely on intelligence from us. So their work becomes difficult if we don’t help so we must all bear the blame,” he said.
