Minority to drag IGP to Parliament over 3 kidnapped Takoradi girls Minority Leader, Haruna Iddrisu
The Minority in Parliament has expressed their readiness to drag the Inspector General of Police (IGP) before Parliament over the three Takoradi kidnapped girls case.
According to the Minority, the move is to give an opportunity to the IGP to tell MPs what the steps the service is taking to rescue the kidnapped girls.
Leader of the Minority, Haruna Iddrisu was worried the girls had not been found months after they were kidnapped.
“The matter of the kidnapped girls, need national attention. Mr. Speaker, I think next time we come, we will file a motion to compel the Inspector General of Police through the Minister of Interior to report to this House to tell us what steps, beyond the rhetoric we have heard, they are taking to rescue those children,” he said.
Meanwhile, President Akufo-Addo has assured Ghanaians he would put in place measures to address the recent surge in kidnapping cases.
“We are all concerned about this phenomenon of kidnappings which we have not known. Our brothers and sisters in Nigeria have known it but we have not known it in this country. We need to do something about it to make sure that this does not become a feature of our society. I am very very determined on the issue and decisions are being taken as we speak that will be a clear manifestation of the determination I have to deal with this matter,” he said.
