The family of Priscilla Kuranchie, one of the dead girls from Takoradi in the Western Region has welcomed the outcome of the DNA test conducted by the Criminal Investigations Department of the Ghana Police Service and initiated plans to hold a funeral service for their beloved daughter.
According to the family, they dissociate themselves from the stance of the other families demanding an independent DNA test of the skeletal remains of the girls against the test run by the CID.
Speaking at a press conference, the family said the effort of the Ghana police is commendable, however they are appealing to the police to work assiduously to ensure that the perpetrators are bring to book.
The Acting Inspector General of Police, James Oppong Boanuah, announced on Monday evening that the four missing girls in Takoradi; Ruth Abakah, Priscilla Kuranchie, Ruth Love Quayson, and Priscilla Blessing Bentum, were dead according to a DNA test conduct by the service.
Ruth Love Quayson, 18, went missing on December 4, 2018. The other girls Ruth Abaka, Priscilla Blessing Bentum, and Priscilla Kuranchie went missing on July 29, August 15, and December 21 respectively in 2018.
Families of the three kidnapped Takoradi girls on Monday said they have lost confidence in the Ghana Police Service.
The family of Ruth Love Quayson, one of the girls kidnapped in the Western Regional capital, Takoradi, is calling for public support to enable them do a second DNA test.
The family said it doubts the credibility of the test conducted by the police due to the clandestine way it was done.
