The government of Ghana has disclosed that, it is working with international security agencies as part of efforts to rescue the three missing Takoradi girls.
In recent times, pressure has been mounting on President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to fire his security chiefs over their inability to trace the whereabouts of the girls especially the CID boss COP Maame Tiwaa Addo-Danquah.
At a press conference in Accra on 2 April 2019, the CID boss said that the police knew the whereabouts of the missing girls and was working towards their rescue.
COP Addo-Danquah said: “We know where the girls are.”
However, in a recent interview, she said her earlier comment had been misunderstood by the public and that it was meant to give hope to the family of the kidnapped girls.
Addressing the press on the matter on Thursday, 16 May 2019, Information Minister, Mr Kojo Oppong Nkrumah indicated that the government has not relented in it’s quest to locate and rescue the girls.
He said: “It is a very hard breaking situation but government is informed of a high-level collaborative operation which involves a number of agencies in and outside Ghana that are aimed at helping unravel the case of these missing girls.
“We want to encourage the public and the media to assist with additional information. The police and the security agencies tell us they’ve had a lot of information which they are already working with but again we want to encourage the public and the media to assist with additional information that can speed up the effort.”
Reacting to calls for full disclosure on what the security agencies have done so far, Mr Nkrumah said such disclosure could compromise the rescue operation.
“We are informed that putting out too much information at this point on what they are doing could compromise the operations,” he stated.
The missing girls are 18-year-old Priscilla Mantebea Koranchie, last seen on 21 December 2018; 21-year-old Priscilla Blessing Bentum, last seen on 17 August 2018; and 18-year-old Ruth Love Quayson, last seen on 4 December 2018.
