Families of the three missing Takoradi girls have described reports of the body parts, two skulls that were exhumed by the police investigating the kidnapping of three girls in Takoradi, from the backyard of the prime suspect, Samuel Udeotuk, at Kansaworodo, as a nightmare.
Speaking in an interview with Adom TV, father of Priscilla Koranchie said the news came as a shock to the family who haven’t still recovered.
“I couldn’t sleep the whole of last night after the police report came out and it is hard for me to accept this report because we were looking forward to good news from the police,” he said.
He added “viewing their pictures on TV and hearing stories on radio after the police report came out was heartbreaking but I am still hopeful since the police said they will conduct a forensic test on the human parts.”
The three girls, Ruth Quayson, Priscilla Blessing Bentum and Priscilla Koranche have gone missing and are believed to have been kidnapped between August 2018 and January 2019, but have since not been found. Police have since mounted a thorough investigation and search for the girls.
A press statement from the police Criminal Investigations Department on Friday, August 2 said they have been able to retrieve some skeletons from a septic tank in an uncompleted building at Kansaworodo in Takoradi which was previously occupied by Mr Udeotuk, one of the accused persons in the case.
Though the police are yet to identify the found skeletons, there have been several comments by the public and a section of the media linking the found human parts to be those of the missing Takoradi girls.
