Father of one of the kidnapped Takoradi girls, Mr. Francis Bentum has said that they (the family of abducted girls) have lost faith in the Ghana Police Service’s ability to do a thorough investigation.
Francis Bentum, father of Priscilla Blessing Bentum, the first girl to be kidnapped, therefore appealing to the government to give them an independent body to conduct a Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) test on discovered bodies believed to be their loved ones.
Speaking in an interview on Happy FM’s ‘Epa Hoa Daben’ show, Mr. Bentum said “until an independent body carries out the DNA analysis, we will not cooperate because the police has not been candid with us throughout the investigations. We are asking why the police keeps distorting the information regarding the investigation.”
According to him, he is not sure the discovered human remains could have been kept in that contaminated tank.
However, the host of the show, Kwame Afrifa-Mensah advised Mr. Bentum to cooperate with the police to aid them to arrive on a logical conclusion.
The police last Friday exhumed some human remains within the premises where one of the suspected kidnappers, Samuel Udeotuk-Wills resided.
“On Saturday 3rd August, 2019 Police held discussion with families of the three missing ladies in Takoradi to assist with DNA samples as part of the investigation and the families are cooperating with the Police in this endeavor,” a police statement said Monday.
