Rebecca Quayson, an elder sister to one of the three kidnapped girls in Takoradi, claims the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) Boss, COP Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo-Danquah has asked them to stop granting interviews to the media concerning the case.
According to her, the CID Boss reportedly spoke angrily during a telephone conversation with her mother warning them to cease speaking to the press. Thereafter, the latter, in compliance, asked her (Rebecca Quayson) to stop granting interviews to radio and television stations.
“. . but after waiting for a while without any positive response as to the whereabout of the girls, I can’t keep quiet anymore. We need to know where they are because they (CID) claim they know where the girls are but can’t give us any assurance,” she said.
Rebecca further indicated that the families of the three kidnapped girls will come to Accra on Tuesday, 2nd May, 2019 to inquire from the CID Boss what exactly is going on since “after her press conference, we have not seen the girls nor heard anything positive; no one is telling us anything.”
