Oji, who appeared at the Sekondi-Takoradi High Court II was charged with the offence of conspiracy to kidnap and kidnapping and is to reappear on June 26, this year.

Earlier, Samuel Udoetuk, the suspect standing trial in the kidnapped case mentioned John Oji as the key to unraveling the whereabouts of the kidnapped girls.

The three girls have been away for more than eight months now.

Wills was charged with escape from lawful custody, destroying public property and resisting lawful arrest and convicted on all three counts with an 18 months concurrent prison sentence.

Oji arrived at the Sekondi High Court in a police vehicle with his face covered which made it almost impossible for journalists to catch a glimpse of him.

Ms Adelaide Kobire Wood, a lead state Attorney requested Justice Hannah Taylor, the presiding Judge to remand the suspect into police custody to enable the Police to continue with investigation into the case.

Till date, parents, families and well wishers are in a state of desperation as the three girls, Priscilla Bentum, Priscilla Mantebea Koranchie and Ruth Love Quayson who were kidnapped at different communities within the metropolis are still missing.
