Award-winning artist Martin King Arthur known in showbiz circles as Kofi Kinaata has expressed deep remorse after DNA test conducted on families of the missing Takoradi girls and some remains exhumed by Ghana police confirmed the death of the Takoradi girls.

The artist who hails from Takoradi in the Western Region of Ghana said he is sorrowful following news that broke out on the case. “I will say the outcome of the DNA test in the missing Takoradi case has left me sorrowful”, he said.

Kofi Kinaata has joined a thousand other Ghanaians who feel disappointed in the way and manner the case was handled by the Ghana Police, with many calling for the immediate dismissal of the Director-General of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID). He sent out his words of condolence to the bereaved families and said he and every Ghanaian are available to support them during these difficult times. “The police could have done better. I think they did their best but they could have done better”, he said.

The 4 Takoradi girls were kidnapped in Takoradi over separate periods in 2018. A suspect who was arrested earlier this year disclosed after interrogation that the bodies of the girls were dumped in a manhole at Nkroful in the Western Region. An operation by the Ghana Police led to them exhuming the remains. After a DNA test conducted on them and their family members, the Ghana Police this week confirmed those were the remains of the 4 Takoradi girls.
