The DNA test on the bodies of the abducted girls’ in Takoradi has revealed that they were killed by their captors more than nine months ago.

The scientific tests on the bones noted clearly that the girls died between nine months and one year, which strongly indicates that the young girls were killed a few weeks after their kidnapping.

The DNA tests, carried out in the Spanish laboratory in Accra and the US, cost the police and the state up to GHC300,000.

This is because members of some of the girl families insisted that they need independent DNA results from foreign companies to convince themselves.

David Eklu, the Director of Public Affairs of the Ghana Police Service, said the service was opened to a second report about the results of the DNA of the corpses found at Kasawrodo in the Western Region.

According to him, the police did not hide anything in the results, which confirmed that indeed the bodies were that of the missing girls.

Takoradi missing girls were murdered nine months

The news on the girls is not fun, there is some concern in the media that we might face difficulties. We deal with the families on individual basis, and if the family needs remnants for independent testing, we will not object,” he said to Starr News Naa Dede Tetteh.

The acting IGP of police also disclosed that the families of the 4 girls have been informed by the Police.

The Police also added that further investigations revealed that the girls were victims of a “serial kidnapping and murdering syndicate that operated in that part of Takoradi.”

The Police IGP is however very confident that the arrest of the suspects behind the kidnapping and murders has effectively thwarted the possibility of further kidnappings and murders.
