A 'grandson' of Ghana's award-winning media personality, Gifty Anti, narrowly escaped being held in exchange for ransom earlier today in a foiled kidnapping attempt.
The seasoned journalist and TV show host took to social media to recount the whole incident and asked parents and guardians to stay alert.
According to Gifty Anti, the young man who is "one of her grandsons" was on his way to classes when the incident occurred.
She recounted that he was whisked off his bicycle by unknown men and thrown into a mini van.
But as fate would have it, the young man managed to run away from his captors and was found by a Good Samaritan in Kpone, a suburb of Accra.
