Takoradi police command under investigation over jailbreak

Families of 3 kidnapped ladies in Takoradi yesterday had a rude awakening when it emerged in court that the persons helping to locate their missing relations were actually behind the jailbreaking of the only person who is purported to know the whereabouts of their relatives.

Following the latest development, the families of Ruth Love Quayeson, Priscilla Mantebea Koranchie, and Priscilla Blessing Bentum have given the police in Takoradi one week ultimatum to produce their missing daughters.

This latest development has prompted the police in the Western Region to set up a committee to find out which particular CID officer aided in the jailbreak of the suspected Kidnapper, Samuel Udoetuk Wills.

“The Regional Commander has constituted a team to immediately investigate all those at the station because as at now we don’t know exactly which CID personal aided [his release]. All the CID personnel are going to be questioned,” the Public Relations Officer of the Western Region Police Command, Olivia Adiku, told Joy News.

“The police should usually come out timeously they should give us their initial report on issues that have come up,” Mr. Adam Bonaa told Joy news.

He added that delay and silence of the Police in this matter will further reduce the confidence the families and residents have in the Police.


Pressure is mounting on the police to find three girls who have been kidnapped in the Western Region town of Takoradi.
