Kidnapping

Police arrests three in connection with robbery attacks on the Buipe - Kintampo road

Three persons belonging to a robbery gang, which has been linked to series of highway robbery attacks on the Kintampo-Buipe road have been arrested and detained by the police.

Their names have been given as Sule Adama and Mahamadu Jabi.

The third person is a juvenile and cannot therefore be named. The suspects have already been identified by some of their victims – people they attacked and robbed of their cash and other valuables.

The police in Buipe say the three suspected armed robbers were captured following surveillance on the activities of the gang and with the active support of the people in the community.

The police added that they have launched a massive manhunt to arrest the other members of the robbery gang, which has been behind series of robbery attacks on the Kintampo-Buipe highway.

Separately, four months into the disappearance of Rhodaline Amoah-Darko, an employee of the Lands Commission, in the Ashanti Region, members of her extended family have not given up hope of finding her alive.

Charlottee Acquah, her aunt, says the last four months have been most tormenting and traumatic.

It has not been easy, it has been very difficult.

This was the first time her children are not seeing their mother during Christmas.

The husband of Rhodaline, Dr. Wilberforce Aggrey, a lecturer at the petroleum department of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) is standing trial over her disappearance.

He has been slapped with a criminal charge of kidnapping. The police are linking Dr Aggrey to the disappearance of his wife.

They are accusing him of being behind his wife’s kidnap.

This came after police investigators reportedly unraveled mobile phone communications that they are convinced implicate the lecturer.

After Rhodaline had gone missing, communication from her mobile phone by her suspected abductors, demanding ransom payment, came from a location, close to her residence.  

Communication from Dr. Aggrey’s mobile phone, reporting the incident to some relatives, is also said to have come from the same location (cell tower).

Dr Aggrey is alleged to have admitted making the phone calls and told police investigators that, the suspected kidnappers of Rhodaline, forced him to do that as they threatened to harm his family if he did not do as told. Added to the mobile phone communication, has been the inconsistency in the lecturer’s responses – what he has been telling the police investigators.

He is alleged to have told police investigators that he sent Rhodaline to somewhere near the Volta Lake.

The husband has however been unable to tell where exactly he sent the wife to. He has also not been able to explain why Rhodaline has not returned.
