Assemblies of God fasts, prays for kidnapped girls

The Assemblies of God Church at Diabena in the Western Region have fasted and prayed for 14 days for the three girls kidnapped in the regional capital, Takoradi.

Eighteen-year-old Ruth Love Quayeson, who was kidnapped in that area was last seen on 4 December 2018. The other two, 21-year-old Priscilla Blessing Bentum, who was last seen on 17 August 2018; and 18-year-old Priscilla Mantebea Koranchie, last seen on 21 December 2018, have been missing for weeks.

The Head Pastor of the Church, Andrew Awhaitey, said on Sunday, 27 January 2019 during a visit by Social Protection Minister Cynthia Morrison to the victims’ families that he is of the firm belief that the prayers will bring positive results.

The pastor further pleaded with the Minister and the police authorities to do everything within their power to ensure that the girls are safely returned to their families.

Meanwhile, a combined team of experts from the United Kingdom and the United States of America (USA) have touched down in Ghana to help local police officers in their search for the three girls.

Ghanaian authorities requested international help after efforts by the local police yielded no results.

Samuel Udoetuk-Wills, the Nigerian suspect who was arrested in connection with the case, has refused to give any leads to the police concerning the whereabouts of the missing girls.

He was re-arrested about a month ago after he escaped prison custody.

Some 15 persons have also been arrested in the Eastern Region in connection to the abduction.

The Director-General of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service, DCOP Mrs. Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo-Danquah and some top officials of the Western Regional Police Command visited the families of the victims on Saturday, 26 January 2019.
