Meanwhile, the Canadian Embassy is collaborating with the Ghanaian police to locate the victims.

This is the second kidnapping incident in Kumasi in less than two months.

In April, a 30-year-old Indian man was kidnapped by some gun-wielding men who later demanded for a 500,000-dollar ransom, after sending photos of the victim to his family with a gun pointed to his head.

But police officials in the region managed to rescue Umpakan Chodri the next day. He was said to have begged some women for help from a house on the premises of Akokoamon Primary/JHS School where he sought refuge.
