The family of the missing Lands Commission staff, Rhodaline Amoah Darko, has announced a GH¢100,000 bounty for information that will lead to her whereabouts.
Rhodaline Amoah, 32, a mother of two, who was a Senior Lands Administration Officer, has been missing since 2021.
Her husband, Dr Wilberforce Aggrey, a lecturer at the Petroleum Department of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), who has been accused of kidnapping the wife, is on trial at the Kumasi High Court, for kidnapping and deceit of public charges.
Dr Aggrey has been granted GH¢300,000 bail.
He is in court with two others, Justice Appiah and Yaw Amoateng, who traded the Infinix Mobile handset of Rhodaline.
A third witness was cross-examined by the defence counsel on Monday, and the process would be expected to be completed by the next adjourned date, December 12.
The presiding Judge, Justice Daniel Obeng, has however, granted a request by the defence counsel to release the vehicle of the accused, which has been impounded by the police as part of investigations.
The court ordered that the case be continued despite the delay by the telecom company to release transcript of all calls on the phone of Rhodaline.
Family members and colleagues of Rhodaline who were in court were disappointed at the delay of the trial.
Ms Cecilia Obenewaa Appiah, mother of Rhodaline, who looked traumatised after court proceedings, appealed for public support to help find her daughter.
“All these bureaucracies that are going on are not bringing my daughter; I need my daughter. The bottom line is that I need Rhoda. That is why I continue to appeal to all Ghanaians to help us find her.
“We have put a GH¢100,000 on Rhoda that whoever finds her or whoever has knowledge about her whereabouts will receive. It has been two years and over. It’s not easy to bear this situation. I need help,” she pleaded amidst tears.
In 2022, police prosecutors told the Asokwa District Court that preliminary investigations linked the husband of Rhodaline to a kidnapping note.
Dr Wilberforce was also accused of using his wife’s phone to send text messages from a spot near his home.
That heightened the suspicion of family and friends of Rhodaline that the husband knew her whereabouts, though he has denied the allegation.
