The Western Regional Police Command says its investigations show that the three girls who have been kidnapped in Sekondi-Takoradi were lured by their kidnapper with a ploy to get employment for them.
Police Commander DCOP Vincent Redeemer Dedjoe explained that a call history between the kidnapper, Samuel Wills, and the victims showed a constant communication, ostensibly about a promise of employment.
He added investigations also show Mr. Wills has established some sort of a relationship with the victims before they were eventually kidnapped.
However, he said the police have found new leads they are exploring and are confident they will lead to the discovery of the three kidnapped girls, who are currently being held hostage in an unknown location.
DCOP Vincent Redeemer Dedjoe also said the police are collaborating with Interpol to confirm their intelligence that Mr. Wills has a criminal history of kidnapping in Nigeria.
After his arrest, Mr Wills escaped from police cells once but was recaptured and arraigned before court on a charge of escape from lawful custody.
Judgement will be delivered on Monday, January 28.
