From August 2018, there have been reports of scary kidnapping of young girls especially in the Sekondi-Takoradi metropolis.

The sad development has got a lot of Ghanaians talking and consequently scared for the safety of their wards.

It is at the back of such worry which grew into agitation and criticism of the police forcing Parliament decided to invite the three heads of Ghana's security agencies.

Even though there have been reports that UK and US investigators have arrived in Ghana to assist in rescuing the kidnapped girls, Parliament is keen on knowing the way forward.

Aside the Takoradi kidnapping incidents, there have been reports of kidnapping in the Volta, Greater Accra and Ashanti Regions.
