The Ghana Police Service says the DNA test carried out on the human parts found on a property previously occupied by the suspected kidnapper of the three takoradi girls have been confirmed. They are the three girls who went missing a year ago.
The Acting Inspector-General of Police (IGP), James Oppong-Boanuh who disclosed this at a press conference Monday, September 16, 2019 said the girls were victims of a serial kidnapping and murdering syndicate.
According to him, they have already communicated the findings to the families and have further expressed their condolences.
He said “We have informed the families that the remains are that of 18-year-old Ruth Love Quayeson, last seen on 4 December 2018; 21-year-old Priscilla Blessing Bentum, last seen on 17 August 2018; and 18-year-old Priscilla Mantebea Koranchie, last seen on 21 December 2018.
Mr.Oppong Boanuh was however optimistic that the arrest of the suspects behind the kidnapping has thwarted the possibility of further kidnappings in the country.
Human parts were discovered at Kansaworodo in Takoradi in the Western Region in a septic tank by a team from the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) in Accra and the Western Regional Police Command last month. They were led by the key suspect in the kidnap of the girls, 28-year-old Samuel Udoetuk Wills.
The discovered human remains were subsequently sent to forensic science laboratory of the Ghana police service for analysis and further investigations.
