A communication team member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr Bernard Anim Piesie has a few questions for the Director-General of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service, Commissioner of Police (COP) Maame Tiwaa Addo Dankwa over the inconsistencies in communication over the three Takoradi missing girls.
“Why the drama, can the police tell us exactly what is happening? How do you justify your initial report and dismissal now after telling us you know where the girls are?” he queried.
The posture of Mr Piesie follows a report by pro-government newspaper, the Daily Guide newspaper that the three girls had been rescued and are currently receiving medical treatment at a health facility in Accra.
The police, in a statement, dismissed the report saying, it was false and assured that they are working “tirelessly with partner agencies to rescue the girls.”
Speaking on Adom TV’s Badwam show, Thursday, Mr Piesie said the Police are only causing unnecessary anxiety among families of the victims.
“Their reaction towards the Daily Guide reportage wasn’t really necessary because you (police) told Ghanaians you have seen the girls and know where they are. So how different is the Daily Guide report from the information the police gave us?” he asked.
Ruth Quayson, Priscilla Blessing Bentum and Priscilla Koranchie were reported kidnapped between August 2018 and January 2019.
The CID boss at a press conference on April 1, 2019 disclosed that they had discovered the whereabouts of the three kidnapped girls and they would soon be reunited with their families.
