- A young woman accused of trying to kidnap a schoolboy was nearly lynched by a mob
- The woman is alleged to have lured the boy into a taxi and would have taken him away if not for the timely emergence of the boy's father on the scene
- She received some slaps before being whisked away in a car
YEN.com.gh has sighted a video of a young woman who has found herself in trouble for allegedly trying to kidnap a schoolboy in Accra.
In the video, the lady is seen being heckled by a group of group of people some of whom slapped her in the chaos.
She was later hauled into a car likely being transported to the police station together with the boy and his father.
According to reports accompanying the video, the troubled woman had lured the boy into a taxi at a yet-to-be-named location.
Her intention, the reports suggest was to kidnap the boy but the timely arrival of the father of the boy thwarted her actions.
Coming on the back of reports that a mother had lost her two-month baby to a stranger at Nkrumah Circle in the capital, Accra, the mob was charged for action.
Knowing what was in store for, the lady refused to get out of the taxi after being caught and she cold heard crying and pleading with the crowd to not beat her.
But for the intervention of some elderly people around, a different story would have been told.
