According to Mr Betum, though human remains have been found at a former residence of the main suspect, he is sure those are not the remains of the girls.
This statement from the father may come as confirmation from the Ghana police Service statement that suggests the remains may not be that of the three kidnapped girls.
According to the Deputy Superintendent of Police, Juliana Obeng and also the Head of Public Affairs Unit at the Criminal Investigation Department (CID), human parts indeed were retrieved at the uncompleted building which was formally occupied by the suspect Samuel Odeoutuk Willis but revealed they would be sent to the forensic science laboratory of the Police Service for analysis and further investigation.
However speaking on Pure Fm in Kumasi monitored by TheNewsGh.com, Mr Samuel Bentum confidently said his daughter Priscilla Bentum is still alive and not dead adding that not even after news broke that the police have retrieved remains of three bodies from the residence of the suspect.
“Though it hurts, yet I don’t believe something of the sort has happen. The three girls are still alive but this is to testify that indeed this is what the suspect has been doing for all this while. The bodies are not the three girls. We have also gathered information that our children have been sent to Nigeria so I don’t believe they are dead”. He disclosed.
Asked by Dr Addae Mensah the host if the police service has been given them information about the where about of the 3 girls, Mr Bentum said that has not been the case attributing it to “security reasons”.
“Sometimes I have to call to ask but the police service has never given us update of what is happening” Mr Bentum revealed.
