CID Boss Must Apologize To Ghanaians – Joyce Mogtari
LISTEN AUG 7, 2019

Special Aide to former President John Mahama, Joyce Bawa Mogtari has called on the Director-General of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID), COP Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo-Danquah to apologize to Ghanaians for her comments regarding the location of the three kidnapped Takoradi girls.

According to Joyce Bawa, current revelations on the matter including the discovery of human remains indicate that the CID boss' earlier comments were ill-informed.

This comes after COP Addo Danquah told the media that her outfit knew the location of the girls and work was in progress to rescue them.

Speaking on Citi TV's Breakfast Daily program on Thursday, Joyce Bawa Mugtari said the head of the CID and her men have not handled the situation with the needed seriousness.

“I think the public outcry was enough to cause her to make certain pronouncements…I would expect her to express some remorse. It will cast her in good light. I would advise her to just engage the public, at least retract some of the statements she made.”

In April, the CID Boss notably assured Ghanaians that Police knew the whereabouts of the three kidnapped girls; Priscilla Blessing Bentum, Ruth Love Quayson and Priscilla Kuranchie.

This was met by cries from the kidnapped girls' families who warned the CID Boss to stop playing with their emotions because of the lack of clarity.

The following month, the CID Boss said her comments were misunderstood and only meant to give the families hope.

Before the debacle, families of the kidnapped girls' had already been appealing for the CID Boss' removal.

They had the support of other groups like Concerned Mothers Association, who wanted her sacked over her refusal to apologise for lying on the whereabouts of the kidnapped girls.

Police have so far found four human remains at various locations as part of their investigation into the disappearance of the three Takoradi girls.
