T’di Girls Kinappers Trial Starts

John Oji and Samuel Udoetuk Wills

For
the first time, the two suspected Nigerian kidnappers of the three Takoradi
girls have appeared in court for their long-awaited trial to commence.

The
two, Samuel Udoetuk Wills, 28, and his accomplice, John Oji, 29, arrived at the
Sekondi High Court in a tinted police vehicle and with their heads in hoods
amid tight security yesterday.

Samuel
Udoetuk-Wills has already been sentenced to 18 months’ imprisonment to run
concurrently for escaping from lawful custody and causing damage to public
property by a Takoradi Magistrate Court. He is coming back alongside Oji to be
tried in the substantive case of kidnapping.

Oji,
who was arrested in neighbouring Togo through a special operation by the Ghanaian
Police, has been charged with conspiracy and kidnapping.

Yesterday
in court, Adelaide Kobir eWoode, who led a team from the Attorney General’s
Department, told the court that John Oji’s name had been mentioned in
connection with the kidnapping of the three girls in Takoradi.

The
Sekondi High Court, presided over by Justice Hannah Taylor, remanded him and asked that the two suspects be brought together at the
next adjourned case on July 24.

The
prosecutor told the court that they needed to make some amendments on the
charge sheet since there had been some new developments and also indicated that
the accused persons ought to have legal representation.

The suspects were quickly whisked away in a Ford Pickup vehicle by a team of gun-wielding police officers.
