Residents of Sekondi-Takoradi in the Western Region and its environs has held a grand vigil for the three (3) missing girls that have been kidnapped.

The vigil was also to highlight what they say is the wave of kidnappings that has hit the twin city.

Although the police say only three ladies have been reported missing, residents say at least seven ladies, most of them teenagers, have gone missing since last year.

Hundreds of residents thronged the dark streets, holding lighted objects such as candles and lamps, and prayed sporadically to seek the face of God in the impasse.

According to the organisers, the unprecedented vigil started with a “walk of prayer”, through the principal streets of Takoradi, specifically the Market Circle, after which they returned to the starting point, the Jubilee Park.

At the park, pastors led rounds of prayers to seek God’s guidance for the three young ladies. Pastors generally prayed for the girls, their families and even the kidnappers, believed to be a Nigerian syndicate, asking God to strengthen the girls and care for them wherever they may be.
