A 22-year-old level 300 student of the University of Cape Coast identified as Simeon Cephas Andoh Dadzie has been arrested by the Sekondi police for kidnapping an 18-year-old Senior High School student.
According to 3news.com, the young girl from Methodist Senior High School in Sekondi whose name has been withheld was lured to the suspect's hostel through Facebook.
The real reason for which Cephas lured the young girl was not stated and it has also not been mentioned whether he demanded any ransom or not.
Reports indicate that a group of angry youth who got leads about the development read through the Facebook conversations of the two individuals and concluded that the girl might be with the suspect.
They visited the Cape Coast University and the particular hostel. After meeting Cephas, the group indicated that he claimed no knowledge of the girl or her whereabouts.
The angry group went ahead to conduct a thorough search and found the girl in the washroom. In their own words:
“We moved from Sekondi to Cape Coast on Wednesday in the morning around 11am to UCC campus where upon our arrival, we were assisted by a lady alumnus of the University to the suspect’s hostel".
“Upon our search in the room, we found the girl in the bathroom and quickly arrested the guy and brought him down to Sekondi and handed him over to the police,” the group added.
The victim had reportedly become very pale and is currently undergoing treatment. The suspect, on the other hand, is in the custody of the Sekondi police assisting in the investigation.
According to Celebritiesbuzz.com who used the opportunity to send a strong signal that youths stop drug abuse, the lady consumed the popular drug to 'get high'.
It was clear from the video that she might have gone 'too high' as she was screaming her hearts out as though she was about having her brain explode out of her head.
