A special police operation has led to the discovery and exhumation of the bodies of the three missing Takoradi girls, Dailymail.com.gh has gathered.
The lifeless bodies of the three girls were found at Kasawrodo in the Western region.
The bodies, which were found with signs suggesting massive sexual abuses, were retrieved from a manhole in the area Friday evening, Accra-based Starr FM reports.
Sources say the key suspect was brought to the scene during the exercise.
A team of police personnel undertook the operation after a tip-off in the community.
The whereabouts of the three missing Takoradi girls – Ruthlove Quayson, Priscilla Blessing Bentum and Priscilla Koranchie – who were kidnapped between August and December 2018 have been a mystery several months after the issue gained national prominence.
Criminologist Prof. Ken Attafuah in May said he suspected the three kidnapped Takoradi girls might be dead or trafficked outside Ghana.
According to him, there was no reasonable basis to believe that the girls were still alive or in the country.
“As a criminologist and as a professional investigator, I thought that there was and I pray to God that I’m wrong…but I thought that there was misplaced energy and focus.”
“If indeed, we have kidnapping on our hands…there’s no reasonable basis to believe that those victims of the kidnappings are still in Ghana or still alive. If they are alive, there’s very little that gives me a basis to believe that they are alive in Ghana. If they are not alive sorry. That’s just awful,” he said.
