Recent kidnappings in Ghana have raised serious concerns as to how to go about a normal life without being taken away by some unknown persons. Media personalities Johnnie Hughes and Berla Mundi have shared a chilling story of what to do as soon as you board a vehicle or public transport like taxi.
For Johnnie Hughes, he got scared after boarding a taxi he had placed an order for. But he was quick to save himself from any ordeal.
“I ordered for this taxi from one of the companies. The driver came and I realized he was moody. He won’t talk to you or any other thing. So I decided to stop him and order another one. I have to save myself. I could have defended myself in case of anything but I decided to change the taxi. So people have to be careful these days.” He told TV3.
Berla Mundi, on her part, put forth some precautionary measures Ghanaians must adopt while going for public transport.
“These days I think when you are boarding a taxi, inform a friend, take the number plate and send to a friend. You can also send a live location to the friend so in case anything happens, someone can find you.”
People of different age categories have gone missing in recent weeks. Various strategies are being adopted as to how to avoid being kidnapped.
