Private Legal Practitioner, Maurice Ampaw, has said Ghanaians are unfair to be calling for the removal of COP Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo-Danquah, the Director-General of the Criminal Investigations Department, over developments in the Takoradi kidnapping case.
On 4th April 2019, CID Boss Tiwaa Addo-Danquah said the Police have discovered the whereabouts of three girls kidnapped last year at Takoradi and are closer to bringing them home.
“We know where the girls are,” the Director-General of the Criminal Investigations Department noted.
But Madam Tiwaa Addo-Danquah has replied critics calling for her head following her handling of the case involving the three missing Takoradi girls.
“But the lawyer believes those attacks on the CID Boss are unnecessary.
“So let’s get to the bottom of it then we’ll trace backwards and see where the lapses were and those who flouted our procedure in tackling such crimes, Ghanaians have been very unfair madam Tiwaa Addo-Danquah has not done wrong for her to be heard you can’t blame her much because she was mislead,”Maurice Ampaw exclusively told Kwame Tutu on Anopa Nkomo on Accra based Kingdom FM 107.7
“In life, we all make mistakes and politicians have made similar mistakes and they are still at the post so this errors must not force her to resign, he added
Maame Tiwaa Addo-Danquah says her resignation will not automatically resolve the issue and bring back the girls.
She said her focus is working to “bring whatever situation that we have at a very conclusive stage not to waste your time thinking you want to resign or not.”
The police have confirmed they retrieved human remains from a septic tank on a property previously occupied by the key suspect in the kidnapping of the three Takoradi girls, Samuel Udoetuk-Wills.
The police have requested DNA samples from the families of the victims saying results could be ready in four weeks.
The girls, Ruth Quayson, Priscilla Blessing Bentum, and Priscilla Koranchie are believed to have been kidnapped between August 2018 and January 2019.
