The two suspects in the missing Tadoradi girls case have been sentenced to death by the Secondi High Court on Friday, 5th March 2021. The suspects; Samuel Odeotuk Wills and John Oji were charged with kidnapping and murdering of Ruth Abakah 19, Priscilla Blessing Bentum 21, Ruth Love Quason 18 and Priscilla Quaranchie 15. The victims were captured at different locations, including Kansawurodo Butumagyebu, and Nkroful Junction, all in Secondi-Tadoradi of the Western Region.
After nearly two years of hearing the case, the seven (7) member jury found the two offenders guilty of committing the crime. Presiding over the case was Justice Richard Adjei-Frimpong who sentenced them to death by hanging, however the suspects may appeal the judgement within 30 days, should they choose to do so.
Following the judgement, there were mixed reactions; whilst others were satisfied with it, the relatives of the girls who are still in denial of the death of their daughters want more from the country’s justice system. See the image below!
