The family of one of the four Takoradi girls confirmed dead by the police following the outcome of DNA results has made a sudden u-turn about their earlier stance amidst heaping accusations on the police.
Family of Ruth Love Quayson led by her mother on Monday night snubbed a telephone call from President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo when he called to commiserate with them following the news of the death of their daughter.
They justified the snub on live radio interviews indicating that during the President’s recent visit to the area, he refused to see them at their individual homes only to call after the news broke out that the DNA results proved positive they were the missing girls.
“We were here the President bypassed us and went all the way to Axim and addressed a forum there that he and his government are not leaving any stones unturned until the girls are found,” sister of the deceased had said in an earlier interview.
She, however, beat a retreat on Wednesday claiming that she never snubbed the president despite being loud on various media networks bragging about rejecting the call from the Commander-In-Chief of the Ghana Armed Forces.
She said “someone called me and said he is the spokesperson of the President but the place was noisy and I could not hear what he was saying. I asked that he calls back later in view of the fact all he was saying was drowned by the noise”
The girls — Priscilla Blessing Bentum, 21, Priscilla Mantebea Koranchie, 18; Ruth Love Quayson 18, and Ruth Abeka – were victims of a kidnapping and murdering syndicate in the Takoradi area, police have said
The Acting Inspector of General of Police, James Oppong Boanuh, said at a press conference Monday that the results of the DNA test on remains retrieved in Takoradi have been relayed to the families along with condolences.
