But many Ghanaians were angry at the posture of the security agencies in rescuing the girls.

There were renewed agitations when the government again failed to help find the girls but was able to assist in rescuing some Canadian girls also kidnapped in Ghana’s Ashanti region.

Parents and relations of the kidnapped girls for months have been praying for the safe return of the girls.
