The angry madam Comfort Arhin, mother of Ruthlove Quayson slapped the suspect who was in court today for questioning to help unravel the truth and the where about of the girls. The drama unfolded at the Sekondi High Court 2 in the Western Region today Wednesday 31st July 2019.
The mother of the kidnapped girl who seemed not excited about the responses emanating from one of the suspects, Samuel Udoterk took the law into her own hands and slapped him in court after he pleaded not guilty to the judges.
The mother, who desperately wants to know the faith of her child and see offenders punished was very distressed by the suspects “No guilty” response, pounced on him while he was being ushered out of court.
According to sources, the family members of the two other missing Taadi girls joined in the attack. So far, Udoterk one of the suspects has admitted conspiring with the second suspect, John Orji to kidnap Ruthlove Quayson and Priscilla Bentum but has refused to tell police about their whereabouts.
According to Joynews reportor, Ina-Thanlia Quansah, it took almost 15 minutes before the police, were able to bring some sanity sanity to the court.
Six (6) charges were leveled againt the suspects. These were conspiracy to commit crime; to wit kidnapping and kidnapping were leveled against Udoterk and the second suspect, John Orji however, Udoterk pleaded not guilty to all.
Although Udoterk admitted conspiring with John Orji to kidnap Ruthlove Quayson and Priscilla Bentum he has refused to tell police about their whereabouts which led to the reaction from the family. The police also found out a Facebook conversation between the suspects relating to the drugs to be administered to the victims when they are captured.
Udoterk’s refusal to divulge the location of the girls angered the families and so they hurled insults and cursed the suspects. They further accused the police for not doing enough to rescue their daughters.
The case was adjourned by Justice Hannah Taylor, the presiding judge to October 16 and the state attorney has been instructed to bring to court all exhibits relating to the case.
