The Canadian Government has through its High Commission in Ghana expressed gratitude to the Ghana Police Service and the Ghanaian government for rescuing two of its citizens.
The two Canadian women were rescued on Wednesday, June 12, 2019, after their abduction in Kumasi on June 4, 2019.
In a post on its official Facebook page, the Canadian High Commission said “thanks to the Ghana Police Service and the Government of Ghana for all efforts made to secure the safe release of the Canadians. We also appreciate the messages of support and concern from many Ghanaians and Canadians.”
Lauren Patricia Catherine Tilley, 19, and Bailey Jordan Chitty, 20, both students working as volunteers in Ghana for an international development organisation, Youth Challenge International, were allegedly abducted recently and taken to unknown destination by some gun-wielding men.
The captors had ambushed the young women on a driveway at Ahodwo-Nhyiaeso near the Royal Gulf Club in Kumasi, whilst returning from a food joint in an Uber car.
They were bundled into a Toyota Camry saloon car and whisked away after stepping out of the car to go to their hostel at the Silver Spring avenue.
They have since returned to Canada after their rescue.
