- The Ghana Police Service has revealed that the “security agencies are working closely together” to rescue two female Canadians
- The two, aged 19 and 20, are volunteers with a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) known as Youth Challenge International
The police administration is pleading with the media and public to cross-check and verify information about the kidnap of the two Canadian nationals before they put it out there.
The police, in a statement, confirmed the abduction of the two Canadian nationals in Kumasi in the Ashanti region of Ghana.
The statement, signed by the Assistant Commissioner of Police, David Eklu, said the police were investigating the case involving the two women aged 19 and 20, who are volunteers with an NGO known as Youth Challenge International based here in Ghana.
“Investigation started immediately upon receipt of a complaint and the security agencies are working closely together to get them rescued and the perpetrators arrested,” the statement said, asking the general public to assist the police by volunteering information to complement the effort of the security agencies.
The statement also warned, “due to the nature of the case, the police is entreating journalists, media discussants and all persons to be highly circumspect in the discussion of this matter in the media without first cross-checking from official police sources.”
The police said any information can also be sent to any of their official social media handles or presented directly to the Public Affairs Officer of the Ashanti Regional Police, ASP Godwin Ahianyo on 0244288019.
In April 2019, an Indian was also kidnapped in the Ashanti Region and later rescued.
