Families of the three kidnapped Takoradi girls have reiterated calls for an independent forensic test to be conducted on the remains retrieved behind the residence of the main suspect, Sam Udoetuk Wills.
This follows a police invitation to the families for DNA test.
The families say the police have acted unprofessionally hence their decision to call for independent tests.
At a press conference, the brother of one of the victims, Micheal Larbi Koranchie raised questions over police investigation, which he stated as;
“Who will testify that the said remains were exhumed from the septic tank since all civilians were driven away from the scene?”
“Can the police come clear on why Mr. Peter Ofori Donkor, former DSP at Takoradi and Mr. Ametepe,the CID, who handled the case were transferred since they know the depth of the issue?”
Also, speaking at the press conference was the President of the Concerned Mothers Association, Josephine Amo, who said the human parts cannot be that of the three missing Takoradi girls, raising more questions about the process.
“How come that all of a sudden body parts found in the residence of the main suspect could be that of our three missing girls whom we have been made to believe that they were outside the country. How come that for all this while the police has not been able to conduct a thorough search in the residence of the main suspect for almost a year? How is it that since the case started the police has not communicated any information to the public and this time and they hurriedly came out with a press release? Could they have waited till they finished with their forensic test before issuing out the press release?”
“We do not believe that the body parts retrieved from the residence of those suspects are the body parts of our three missing girls.”
The police say they will complete DNA test on the human parts retrieved from a septic tank behind the house of Sam Udoetuk Wills, last Friday.
