The police through their investigations got the information that the girls were allegedly buried in the septic tank behind the accused person's house at Kasaworodo in Takoradi.

Subsequently, police officers from Accra stormed the Kasaworodo house of the accused person and cordoned off the area.

Three girls are 18-year-old Priscilla Mantebea Koranchie, 18-year-old Ruth Love Quayson and 21-year-old Priscilla Blessing Bentum.

According to graphiconline.com.gh, at about 5:30 pm on Friday, the Police with the help of the Prisons Service started emptying the septic tank.

By 8 pm, the officers found the skeletons suspected to be that of the missing girls and moved away from the scene with the skeletons parked in four separate boxes and headed towards Accra.

Reports indicate that family members of the missing girls who got wind of the operation moved swiftly to the scene and subsequently moved to Accra when they heard the police were on their way to Accra with the skeletons.

The family members have since called for an independent forensic investigation to establish whether the skeletons found were indeed that of the three missing girls.

The three girls are: 18-year-old Priscilla Mantebea Koranchie, 18-year-old Ruth Love Quayson and 21-year-old Priscilla Blessing Bentum.

Their disappearances spanned a period of five months, from August 2018 through December 2018, with Ms. Bentum being the first to be kidnapped in August, followed by Ms. Quayson and Ms. Koranchie, all in December of 2018.
