Security Expert Festus Aboagye has entreated the media to be circumspect in churning out information on the three kidnapped Takoradi girls.
This follows a denial by the Ghana Police Service of a report by the Daily Guide newspaper that the girls have been rescued and are with the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI).
Mr Aboagye told Kwabena Prah Jnr (The Don) on Accra100.5FM’s Ghana Yensom on Thursday, 25 April 2019 that the case was a serious matter which affects the emotions of families and was unfortunate that the media will be twisting such a crucial national issue.
The girls, 18-year-old Priscilla Mantebea Koranchie, last seen on 21 December 2018; 21-year-old Priscilla Blessing Bentum, last seen on 17 August 2018; and 18-year-old Ruth Love Quayson, last seen on 4 December 2018, have been missing since last year.
The police has also assured the families of the girls that they are working “tirelessly with partner agencies to rescue the girls.”
The police said they have “assigned liaison officers in Takoradi to coordinate information between the police and the families of the kidnapped girls and encouraged family leadership to cooperate with the assigned officers”.
