Ghanaians have taken to social media Tuesday morning, pouring out their disgust and outrage about the confirmed death of the missing Takoradi girls by the Police.
According to some messages, Ghanaians deserve a credible, trusted, disciplined and professional Police Service to meet the standards of international policing and therefore are calling for the head of three security chiefs, citing their failure to rescue the girls from suspected kidnappers.
They want the Director-General of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID), Maame Tiwaa Addo Danquah; the National Security Minister, Albert Kan Dapaah and the Interior Minister, Ambrose Dery, to step down.
According to some social media users, the image of the Police must be protected. Police-public relations is boosted largely through public confidence and trust, and currently, Madam Tiwaa Addo-Danquah has failed to do so instead denting and bringing the name of the police into disrepute with her consistent misconduct and display of unprofessional ethics on the job.
Prior to the shocking news, by the IGP on Monday, which stated that some remains that were found in the course of their investigations were indeed those of the four missing Takoradi girls, following results of a DNA test, CID Boss, Tiwaa Addo Danquah, had said that the girls – Priscilla Blessing Bentum, 21, Priscilla Mantebea Koranchie, 18; Ruth Love Quayson 18, and Ruth Abeka – were alive and their whereabouts were known.
Below are some of the reactions
Mr. President @NAkufoAddo you were intervening in matters of Asamoah Gyan deciding not to play for Ghana again but 4 Ghanaian girls were kidnapped a year ago and you toured the region but failed to meet the families. So are you happy with yourself Mr. President? #TiwaaMustGo— Austine Woode (@obiMpenaAustine) September 17, 2019
Dear President @NAkufoAddo so based on what did you give the CID Boss Madam Tiwaa 2 promotions? You see how she has embarrassed you? Why is she and Bryan Acheampong still at post Mr.President? You've really disappointed me and many Ghanaians #TiwaaMustGo— Austine Woode (@obiMpenaAustine) September 17, 2019
I still believe the girls are alive. The story doesn’t make any sense. It sounds like someone is trying to kill the case off. I’m praying very hard that these girls appear from somewhere to the embarrassment of these lazy bureaucrats. #TiwaaMustGo— Che Esq.?????? (@CheEsquire) September 17, 2019

The Takoradi girls issue is saddening chale, thinking through the beginning of this issue to when the CID said they knew their whereabouts, finding skulls and bones and now this! May God keep their souls.#BringBackOurTaadiGirls #TiwaaMustGo— Zeekx (@Khojo_G) September 16, 2019
