The medical test results of Deoxyribonucleic acid, (DNA), samples of families of ‘kidnapped Takoradi girls’ is expected to be completed in the course of this week.

According to an earlier police statement dated August 5, 2019, it estimated a four week period for the test.

The statement also indicated that, the police would cover all other angles of investigations as the search for the kidnapped girls continues.

The families of the four kidnapped girls provided DNA samples for the test after a series of objections and protest.

The DNA test became necessary after some ‘human parts’ were found near the residence of one of the suspected kidnappers Samuel Will.

Two of the suspected kidnappers are currently in police custody in Ghana while the fourth suspect who was arrested in Nigeria is still awaiting extradition.

A Takoradi based social media group, Imagine Takoradi and the Sekondi Takoradi Masqueraders Association, with support from the families of the kidnapped girls on the anniversary the kidnapping of the second girl, Priscilla Blessing Bentum, petitioned the office of Inspector General of Police, (IGP), in August 2019 for a fair exercise through the Takoradi Central Police Command, after a peaceful demonstration.

They paraded through the principal streets of Takoradi with placards condemning the CID Boss on her performance and utterances as well as called for fair forensic test.
