The Ghana Police Service has dispatched a crack team to investigate the mysterious disappearance of a mother of three, Rhodaline Amoah-Darko.
Mrs Amoah-Darko worked with the Lands Commission in the Ashanti region as a Land Administration Officer.
Before her disappearance, Mrs Amoah-Darko appeared on Kumasi-based Nhyira FM’s morning show on Friday, August 27, 2021, to educate the public on land-related issues.
Her husband who is said to be a popular lecturer at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) said she informed him of her intention to travel to Sunyani on Monday, August 29, 2021.
Earlier reports also indicated that she was picked up from work, together with a colleague by some unidentified persons to evaluate land.
This assertion has however been rebutted by the Police which denies Mrs Amoah-Darko was on an official assignment.
“The Lands Commission did not assign Mrs Rhodaline Amoah-Darko on any official work, neither was she assigned with any colleague to do any work leading to her disappearance,” a statement by the Police said.
The release signed by the Acting Director-General of Public Affairs of the Service, ACP Kwesi Ofori also added that “no other staff of the Commission or any other person linked to Mrs Rhodaline Amoah-Darko has been declared missing or found dead.”
The statement also indicated that it has launched investigations into the circumstances leading to her disappearance.
“The reported disappearance of one Rhodaline Amoah-Darko has been brought to the attention of the Ghana Police Service. Following the filing of the “Missing Person” complaint by the husband of Rhodaline on September 2, 2021, a team at the National Headquarters, the Ashanti Regional Police Commander and Crime Officer, and his team have spoken to all related parties as part of the police investigations.”
“A 24-hour team is currently working on this case and other related cases. Further details on this case shall be made known to the public,” the statement added.
