The Ghana Police Service has confirmed remains suspected to be that of the Takoradi missing Girls after a DNA test.
The confirmation was made by the acting Inspector General of Police, James Oppong Boanuh in a press briefing.
Following the Police discovery of human remains in the septic tank of the alleged kidnapper, Sam Udoetuk Wills, in Kasaworodo in Takoradi, the families were contacted to assist the Police with DNA samples to confirm if the human remains match with the missing girls.
After the investigation which lasted over a month, the Ghana Police Service says, the remains found are that of the missing girls.
The takoradi missing girls have been identified as Priscilla Blessing Bentum, 21 years, Ruth Love Quayson, 18 years, and Priscilla Mantebea Koranchie, 18 years.
They went missing between August and December 2018 and efforts to find them have proved futile. There have been several calls and campaigns from the families and the general public to the police speed up investigations into the whereabouts of the missing girls.
