The Inspector General of Police, (IGP), David Asante-Apeatu has asked families of the kidnapped girls in Takoradi to exercise patience with the Ghana Police Service.

“They shouldn’t give us some timelines but rather they should cooperate with us, the police need time to do these investigations,” he said at a press conference on Thursday.

The case of the three girls who were kidnapped in Takoradi, Western Region has still not been resolved.

Other reports of kidnapping have also emerged in the Volta Region.

Even though Samuel Udoetuk-Wills, a Nigerian, has been arrested in connection with the cases of kidnapping and is assisting the police with their investigation, none of the girls have been found.

Meanwhile, the parents of the kidnapped girls are continuously mounting pressure on the police to fast-track efforts to bring back the girls. 

Reacting to this, David Asante-Apeatu says “it is not as if in Ghana we are unable to unravel kidnapping cases. I returned from South Africa recently and it is the case everywhere. We don’t know? Sometimes I keep wondering whether we are comparing ourselves with a certain country but if we try to do that, we may be a bit comfortable with our situation. I’m not saying we are complacent but we do our best under the circumstances to manage crime in this country”.
