Little boy exposes lovers' plot to stage a fake kidnap to demand GHC 500 ransom

An 11-year-old boy has exposed the plot of his 19-year-old sister to feign her kidnapping to extort money from her parents.

He led their father and police officers to the house of the 25-year-old lover of his sister, Reagan Boabeng Ampofo, at Mpobi, about 12 kilometres from Kumasi, Ashanti region’s capital.

Abigail Manu, a senior high school student, after feigning her kidnap, requested her father to send her a GH¢500 ransom being demanded by the supposed kidnapper.

Unknown to them, Abigail once visited Reagan in the same neighbourhood during the Christmas holidays in the company of her younger sibling.

Spokesperson for the Ashanti Region Police, ASP Godwin Ahianyo said during their interrogation, Abigail claimed they staged the kidnap for fear of being beaten after she stayed late at Reagan’s home.

Apparently the ransom was demanded to abort a pregnancy, though police cannot confirm this as investigations continue.

Reagan, who is now in the custody of the police at Afrancho, and is likely to be charged for abduction, extortion and deceit of a public officer.

The suspect connived with his girlfriend who asked her parents to send the amount before she could be released by the kidnapper.

Desperate to get his daughter back, Abigail’s father sent them GH¢200 out of the GH¢500 “ransom” placed on her.
