Takoradi Kidnapping:Group stages demo over Akufo-Addo's silence on Kidnapped girls

A demonstration was staged by a group calling itself the Concerned Mothers Association in Takoradi on Thursday, February 21, 2019, to register their displeasure over President Nana Akufo-Addo’s silence on the three kidnapped girls in his State of the Nation Address in Parliament.

The group said the President failed to state the government's intention to find the kidnapped girls.

Involved in the demonstration were mothers from various women groups including the Hairdressers Association and the Women in the Media Association. The group also petitioned the President and the Sekondi Regional Coordinating Council over the development.

Three girls in the Sekondi-Takoradi metropolis in the Western Region have been reported missing and believed to have been kidnapped between August 2018 and January 2019.

Meanwhile, the 28-year-old main suspect involved in the Takoradi girls kidnapping in the Western Region, Samuel Udoetuk Wills, has failed to produce his witness, one Kwesi, before the Takoradi District court on Monday, February 18 2019.

The Police are currently under public pressure to find the kidnapped girls but they have assured the public of working on new leads to find the missing girls and bring the perpetrators to book.

Ghana and security agencies in the United Kingdom and the USA are also collaborating to find the kidnapped girls.
