Prime suspect in the case of the three missing Takoradi girls, Samuel Udoetuk Wills, has reportedly revealed that the girls were sold for $5,000 each in Nigeria.
According to BNI sources, Udoetuk confessed that girls were sold to one Mama, an operator of a baby factory at Onitsha in Anambra State.
He further admitted to carrying out the act together with the two other suspects who have been arrested in relation to the crime, John Oji and Chika Nnodim.
Priscilla Bentum, who was the first to have been kidnapped, was reportedly transported to Nigeria in December by John and Chika, while Priscilla Mantebea Kuranchie and Ruth Love Quayson were sent in January through the Aflao border.
The victims were heavily sedated when they were being transported to Nigeria to avoid the risk of them raising alarm.
After receiving this information, the BNI reportedly followed up on it and confirmed the existence of a baby factory ring in the Eastern Nigerian commercial town of Onitsha, where young girls are sold off to kingpins for the purpose of making babies for adoption by rich families in Nigeria and elsewhere.
Investigations into the disappearance of the three girls are still ongoing with a forensic team from the Ghana Police Service expected to arrive in Takoradi in the Western Region today, Wednesday, 14 August 2019 to collect DNA samples from the families of the girls.
This is to enable the team carry out the necessary tests on the body parts found the uncompleted residence of Udoetuk Wills at Kansaworodo in Takoradi believed to be the remains of four people suspected to have been killed by the kidnapper.
