Following the disappearance of three young ladies, residents of Sekondi-Takoradi in the Western Region of Ghana and its environs on Sunday held a vigil.
The girls were said to have been abducted last year by a 28-year-old Nigerian kidnap kingpin who is currently in police custody, Samuel Udoetuk Wills.
The Ghanaian Minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection, Mrs Cynthia Mamle Morrison, revealed that the Nigerian suspect has begun talking to the team of investigators, as it was hinted that the girls are still alive.
Hundreds of Ghanaian residents gathered on the streets while holding lighted objects such as candles and lamps and prayed for the safe return of Priscilla Mantebea Koranchie, 18; Priscilla Blessing Bentum, 21; and Ruth Love Quayson 18.
It was gathered that some of the residents also laid curses on the Nigerian suspect during the vigil as can be seen in the pictures.
