A third suspect has been arrested in Nigeria in connection with the three missing Takoradi girls case.

The suspect, Chika John Nnodim, was arrested on Monday, August 5, 2019.

According to the Ghanaian Times newspaper, Chika was arrested in a joint operation carried out by the Ghana Police Service and their Nigerian counterparts.

According to the report, the police has begun the necessary processes to extradite Chika to Ghana to assist in investigations.

The arrest of Chika brings to three, the number of persons arrested in connection with the three missing girls.

The cesspit from which the remains were found, serves the house from where Udoetuk-Willis rented a single room apartment.
