The Director-General of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID), COP Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo-Danquah says she is focused on the resolution of the Takoradi kidnapping case and not calls for her resignation.
Speaking at an event organised by the Common Wealth Africa, the under-fire CID Boss remarked that she would not waste time thinking about any possible resignation at the moment.
“When you have everybody calling for your resignation and other things, the question you need to ask is, is that what will solve the problem? There is a problem for us to solve and that is my focus,” the CID Boss said.
She added that: “I have to focus and bring whatever situation we have to the conclusive stages not to waste time thinking about whether you want to resign or you don’t want to resign. So when it is time for me to leave, I will leave because somebody was there and I am here and another person will be here.”
After the human remains were found in a sewage system near the home of the main suspect in the kidnappings, Samuel Udoetuk Wills, calls for the resignation of COP Addo-Danquah were renewed.
In April, the CID Boss assured families of the missing persons that the police knew the whereabouts of the three kidnapped girls; Priscilla Blessing Bentum, Ruth Love Quayson and Priscilla Kuranchie.
The following month, the CID Boss said her comments were misunderstood and only meant to give the families hope.
Before what was described as a public relations lapse, families of the kidnapped girls’ had already been appealing for the CID Boss’ removal over her purported lack of urgency in the handling of the case.
