Security and Safety expert, Adam Bonaa, has urged the government to resource families of the missing Takoradi girls to conduct their own forensic tests on the human remains discovered in the course of police investigations.
Mr Bonaa said such a move was important for the families to conduct their own independent investigations in order to bring proper closure to the case since the families are still in doubt.

The families should do their own tests because that permanent state of denial comes in play. You have too many people speaking to a subject that sometimes, for their own parochial interests, try to spin it around and try to confuse everybody and don’t go to get the report, he told Joy News.
Police confirmed the death of the missing girls – Ruth Abakah, Priscilla Kuranchie, Ruth Love Quayson, and Priscilla Blessing Bentum after DNA tests on human remains found near the home of the main suspect in the police investigations.

Three of the families have already rejected the results from the police, citing unprofessionalism on the part of officials from the CID since the kidnapping.
Mr Bonaa posited that rather than aggrieved families making speculations, they should try contacting those who took part in the DNA process and question the stages involved to be able to point out any protocols that may have been missed or breached.

To him, the involvement of too many people on the subject in a diabolical bid for their own interests may restrain the family from having the urge to do another test but he insisted that the state should assist them, no matter how much it is going to cost, to subject this to another test.
