According to media reports, Samuel Udoetuk Wills, the 28-year-old Nigerian kidnap kingpin suspected to be behind the abduction of three girls in Sekondi/Takoradi metropolis, Ghana, has started volunteering information to the police and has confirmed that the girls are still alive.
“The suspect, in police custody for allegedly kidnapping three girls in the Western Region, has begun talking to the team of investigators,” the Minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection, Mrs Cynthia Mamle Morrison, has disclosed.
The minister made this known when she visited the community and the families of the victims yesterday to assure them of the government’s commitment to find the three missing girls alive and reuniting them with their families.
“I am happy that the suspect has started talking, and I must say that I will visit and talk to him myself,” she said.
The minister cautioned the public against panic, speculation and vain suspicions, saying they should keep hope alive.
