Ghanaians have been made to believe that the Western Regional Minister, Kwabena Okyere Darko Mensah, paid a ransom in exchange for the release of the captured and kidnapped Josephine Panyin Mensah. This information was released by an aide to the regional minister, Justice Acquah on Facebook yesterday. According to the aide, the minister paid three thousand cedis, money worth investing into other ventures.
In an interview, the Director-General of the Public Affairs of the police, Kwesi Ofori, disclosed that he has no information about the ransom which was paid. According to him, based on their underground works, no such payment was made.
"We are strictly guided by the release we put out. We cannot declare boldly that the kidnappers were paid that money", he explained.
This new development raises a different level of suspicion. Although the minister has been vindicated, he has to answer other questions provided that there were no payments.
