9 HOURS AGO  HEADLINES  1 COMMENT

Police say they expect to complete the DNA tests on the human parts found near the home of one of the suspects in the Takoradi kidnapping case within four weeks.

“…It [Police administration] expects to conclude DNA tests within the next four weeks,” a statement from the police stated.

In the meantime, the Police Administration in the statement assured it will be “covering all other angles of the investigation” as the search continues for the three kidnapped girls; Priscilla Blessing Bentum, Ruth Love Quayson and Priscilla Kuranchie.

After the police found the human remains last Friday, they requested that the families be on standby to provide DNA samples for testing after meeting them on Saturday.

But some of the families’ plan on refusing the Police’s request for DNA samples because of apparent distrust.

The father of Priscilla Kuranchie the elder sister of Ruth Love Quayson, Rebecca Quayson told Citi News they do not plan to take part in the forensic tests.
