Rebecca Quayson, sister of Ruth Love Quayson, one of the kidnapped Takoradi girls, says the family will only believe the teenagers have been rescued only when they set their eyes on them.
Takoradi has over the past months been hit with a series of kidnappings reports.
Between August of 2018 and January 2019, there have been a number of kidnappings which has generated an operation #BringBackOurTaadiGirls on Social media.
Notable among them is the kidnap of three girls; 15-year old Priscilla Mantebea Koranchie, Priscilla Blessing Bentum, 21, and Ruth Love Quayson.
Main suspect, Nigerian Sam Udoetuk Wills, was re-arrested after breaking out of police custody in connection with these girls.
Director-General of the Criminal Investigations Department DCOP Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo-Danquah earlier this month at a press conference assured parents that the girls are alive and that they know where they are.
Daily Guide network, an online news portal on Tuesday reported that the girls had been rescued and were undergoing a medical examination at an undisclosed health facility in Accra.
However, speaking to host of Atinka FM’s “AM Drive” Ekourba Gyasi, Rebecca Quayson, sister of Ruth Love Quayson, one of the victims stated that the alleged rescue is a mere ploy to stop the impending demonstration by parents and families of Kidnapped girls.
Families of kidnapped girls announced a demonstration exercise in Takoradi and Accra respectively to pressure authorities to intensify rescue efforts.
“We will not believe the girls have been rescued until we meet them. Is there any better medicine than reuniting these girls who have gone missing for months without their parents?”, she quizzed.
