The Police Service says it has retrieved a fourth set of human remains in well at Nkroful new site in Takoradi in the Western region.
The discovery comes days after some bodies were recovered last Friday near the former residence of the key suspect in the case involving the three missing Takoradi girls.
“Police investigators today Aug 6, 2019 discovered a fourth set of human remains in a well at Nkroful new site at Takoradi.
“The remains were discovered at an uncompleted building where Samuel Willis Udutoek was re- arrested in connection with missing persons and later convicted for unlawful escape.
“Investigations are underway to establish the identity of the remains while Police continue with all angles of the ongoing investigation,” the police said in a statement on Facebook Tuesday.
Meanwhile, the families of the three kidnapped girls on Monday said they have lost confidence in the Ghana Police Service.
They are therefore calling for an independent body to conduct a DNA test on discovered bodies believed to be their loved ones.
“We are asking why the police keep distorting the information regarding the investigation,” a family spokesperson Michael Korankye said at a news conference Tuesday.
He added: “We are asking for an independent body” to conduct the DNA test.
The position of the families have been endorsed by a security expert Col. (rtd) Festus Aboagye, who believes the police have “compromised public trust” as far as the kidnapping case is concerned.
“And there is every reason for the family to ask for an independent check,” he noted.
