Fighting Kidnapping, Not The Responsibility Of Police Alone, We Are Failing As Ghanaians – Maame Dede

Elsewhere abroad, an entire community including women and the youth group as soon as news about a missing person breaks out and begin physical search, surveillance and rescue operation alongside Police operations. Instead of searching every corner of the city, both young and old for these missing girls, they rather sorted to demonstrations, social media clamour including me and you with superfluous ranting.

Even in our undeveloped villages, the whole community would have dived deep into a forest to search for one of its own.

This community esprit de corps is what pertains in those countries we are comparing ours too today.

All residents in responsible communities would have volunteered to undertake search operation with commendable esprit for these girls.

In our case, instead of following up on distress calls, we used the shrill cries of these girls in their helplessness to gain political advantage in Ghana. We slept and snored, while they were destined for execution.

So, were these serial murderers living on an island? Did they bring that house along from Nigeria? Did someone question them about their resident status and vocation before collecting money to give them accommodation? Were people in the communities concerned sleeping, 24 hours a day?

These same Nigerians didn’t carry their houses from Nigeria to Ghana. Our own people rented their rooms to them, a vigorous search and analytical thinkers could have helped the matter speed up.

In another case, instead of following up on distress calls, we used the shrill cries of these girls in their helplessness to gain political advantage in Ghana. We slept and snored, while they were destined for execution.

So, nobody ever knew anything about these guys? In fact, I won’t blame just one (1) institution but I’ll blame this apathetic society where we now think that, “wo yonko da 3’ny3 wo da biem”. “Each one for himself. God for us all”.
