T’di skeletons: Forensics team starts DNA tests today

A forensics team from the Ghana Police Service is expected to arrive in Takoradi in the Western Region today, Wednesday, 14 August 2019 to collect DNA samples from the families of the three kidnapped girls.

This followed assurances to the families of the girls by the acting Inspector General of Police, Mr James Oppong Boanuh that the police will thoroughly investigate the matter when he paid a visit to them on Tuesday, 13 August 2019.

Mr Boanuh interacted with the families and promised that the police service was doing its best to resolve the matter.

The DNA samples are to help the police determine the identity of some human skeletons recently retrieved from a cesspit at Kansaworodo, a suburb of Sekondi/Takoradi where the key suspect, Samuel Udoetuk-Willis, resides.

The missing girls are: Priscilla Blessing Bentum, 21, a third-year student of the University of Education, Winneba, kidnapped on 17 August 2018 at Kansaworodo, Ruth Love Quayson, 18, a Fijai Senior High School leaver in Sekondi kidnapped on 4 December 2018 at Butumegyabu junction in Takoradi, and Priscilla Mantebea Kuranchie, 15, a first-year student of Sekondi College, kidnapped on 21 December 2018 at a spot near Nkroful junction.
