The city of Takoradi in the Western Region have been threatened with another kidnapping saga. A thirteen (13) year old girl and student of Queen of Peace Academy in Anaji has been kidnapped by unknown persons. The name of the victim, as well as the guardian or parents have been withheld for good reasons.
The 13-year old girl is said to have packed off from school and had headed for the house today after closing hours around 3pm. Relatives were alarmed by an anonymous call from the kidnappers who demanded a ransom of Five Thousand Ghana Cedis (GHC5,000.00) before her release.
The news as confirmed by a local broadcast journalist, Nhyiraba Paa Kwesi Simpson on Facebook, had sent fears throughout the city, as they are reminded of the missing Takoradi girls some three years ago. Family of the victim have reported the incident to the police and investigations underway.
Sources say a lady who gave her name as Josephine called a grandparent under whose care the victim is, demanding the payment of the ransom. She allowed for a brief chat with the victim just to confirm they had the girl in their custody.
So far no arrangement has been made by the police or relatives to negotiate with the kidnappers. It is worthy to note that the stretch from the school to Kansaworodo were the four kidnapped girls from last three years were recorded are within the same municipality and a few distance apart.
The lessons from the past events should be an advice to the Police and relatives on how they handle the matter. The Police have not made any comment on the matter yet.
