Former Member of Parliament (MP) of the Opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC)
for La-Dadekotopon, Hon. Nii Amasah Namoale has said that Director General of the Criminal
investigation department for the Ghana police service COP Maame Tiwaa Addo Dankwa is a disgrace to the Ghana police service for her comments on the Takoradi kidnapped girls.
A statement from Ms Tiwaa who claims she knows the whereabouts of the Takoradi kidnapped girls later again stated that her previous comment on the kidnapped girls was misunderstood rather, she was announcing to give hope deceased parents. Speaking to the media the former NDC MP, Mr Nii Namoale lambasted her for deceiving Ghanaians and the police service as a whole. Madam Kate Quayson, a sister to one of the kidnapped girls also
gave an account of how Mrs Yaa Tiwaa called them (deceased parents) a point in time that they should not speak
to the media because they have found the kidnapped girls and will bring them over very soon.
On April 2, the CID department explicitly told the public that they had identified the location of the three girls.
“It has taken us over three months to even identify where the ladies are and what we don’t want to do is to do anything that will jeopardize the safety of that,” COP Addo-Danquah said at the time.
Now, the CID boss is being measured in her comments saying she cannot give timelines on her outfits rescue efforts. “I cannot disclose much but we are working on it. I made those comments because I wanted to assure people that we were working hard and we had made progress. But people misunderstood me however I
cannot give any timelines saying we will find them today or tomorrow.” The girls are, Ruth Quayson, Priscilla Blessing Bentum and Priscilla Koranchie are believed to have been kidnapped between August 2018 and December 2018.
Below is the statement account by the CID boss previously.
