YEN.com.gh is in possession of photos of about 100 angry residents of the Sekondi-Takoradi who have besieged the Greenleaf Hotel in search of suspected Nigerian kidnappers.
According to 3news.com, their action follows the attempted kidnap of a 19-year-old resident of the town, Emmanuel Aidoo, who was almost abducted by four men on Friday, January 25, 2019.
The residents, some of whom were wielding knives, wooden planks, machetes, broken blocks, swords and a locally manufactured gun, moved from one room to the other, looking for the alleged Nigerians.
They however failed to find their suspects but were taken aback when they discovered a hole under the hotel that can hold more than 10 people at a time.
Aidoo, who claimed some men attempted to abduct him, said they had asked for directions to a funeral.
"I was even bemused because a loud sound was coming from speakers at the funeral grounds and so they could have easily followed it,” he said.
He went on to say that while showing them the way, “I saw three other people approaching from my back and before I could do anything, one of them held me from the back.”
Aidoo however struggled, broke free and took to his heels. A group of well-built young men in the community have resolved to deal ruthlessly with anyone caught.
Some have also threatened to burn down the hotel as the owner put up a resistance when they wanted to search the rooms.
