“I am not God” to promise kidnapped Taadi girls will be found – Dep Minister of Defence

By on

If encouragement is what you seek from the government on the chances of finding the three kidnapped girls of Takoradi then you should probably be revising your notes by now.

This is because the country’s Deputy Minister of Defence, Major Derick Oduro (Rtd), has failed to give any such hope by indicating that he could not play God by promising that the girls would be found.

In what is likely to be the final nail in the coffin of parents and loved ones of the girls, the retired Major in answering a question from the host of Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen, Philip Osei Bonsu, popularly known as OB, on the chances of finding the missing girls said: “I am not God [to promise they will be found]”.

This was after the minister had blamed property owners for being partly responsible for the general insecurity in the country.

The minister grounded his blame of property owners on their propensity to accept rents from foreign nationals whose job profiles they may not necessarily be aware of.

In a plethora of blames that characterised his responses, Major Oduro also blamed Ghanaians for thinking security personnel were magicians who could go bring the missing girls from the blue.

“No security person is a magician, no; it is based on information that we can all help find the children,” he indicated in Twi.

He urged Ghanaians to help with any relevant information that could lead security officials to find the missing girls.

Major Oduro’s comments come in the wake of public anxiety and fear as there have been waves of kidnappings sweeping through Ghana with the latest being the kidnapping of two Canadian nationals.
