The family of Rita Quayson, one of three girls kidnapped in Takoradi in the Western Region months ago says it is confident she will be found soon.
According to the family, their renewed sense of hope stems from assurances from the Criminal Investigations Department of the Ghana Police Service that it is working tirelessly to find and reunite her with her family.
Sister of the victim, Nana Adwoa Quayson in an interview with Citi News said she is hopeful of some positive news from the police soon concerning the girl.
“I learnt the suspected kidnapper will be arraigned on the 11th of February regarding his earlier escape from cell so we are waiting to hear what will be said on the 11th so that we can hold a press conference. Since he has been brought to Accra, maybe we can get some positive news. The CID boss has assured us that everything is under control and they are still working on the matter,” she said.
Ghana and security agencies in the United Kingdom and the USA are collaborating to find the kidnapped girls.
At least three girls in the Sekondi-Takoradi metropolis in the Western Region have been reported missing.
They are believed to have been kidnapped between August 2018 and January 2019.
Three of the victims, including Rita Quayson were reportedly kidnapped by the main suspect, Samuel Udoetuk Wills, who was arrested earlier this year, 2019.
Samuel Udoetuk Wills is currently in police custody and being tried for breaking jail.
He has failed to provide the location of the kidnapped girls.
The Police are currently under public pressure to find the kidnapped girls but they have assured the public of working on new leads to find the missing girls and bring the perpetrators to book.
It recently embarked on a swoop in the Eastern Region where at least 8 suspects were picked up.
Meanwhile, Samuel Udoetuk Wills is expected to re-appear in a Takoradi District Court today [Monday].
