Canadian women kidnapped in Ghana rescued

Canadian women kidnapped in Ghana rescued”

The local news portal, Citi FM, reported the rescue citing confirmation from the Ministry of Information.

Police said the women were volunteers with Youth Challenge International, a Canadian international development organisation headquartered in Toronto. He was later rescued by police.

Global Affairs Canada spokesperson Guillaume Berube stated in an email that due to provisions of the Privacy Act, and "out of respect to these two Canadians who have been through harrowing experiences", no further information would be disclosed.

The women aged 19 and 20 have not been named but Ghana's minister of information Kojo Oppong Nkrumah said additional details of their rescue would be released later Wednesday. "Consular officials are providing assistance to the Canadians and their families".

Meanwhile, Ghanaians are protesting how it is that the police are yet to rescue three girls abducted in the Western Regional capital, Takoradi, months back.

The Ghana Police have been taking their sweet time solving that case but based on the expedited way they were able to find the Canadians with the help of foreign authorities, John Dumelo has offered to pay for the same Canadians to help find the Takoradi missing girls.

Ghana, a relatively peaceful nation, has recorded a spate of abductions in recent months, prompting President Nana Akufo-Addo to declare a crackdown on kidnapping.

Forson said "they were operating without a licence, and they shut that down, and they also issued a warning that they would be tougher with other hostels or hotels where foreigners are lodged".

The statement assured all Ghanaian citizens and foreigners that "Ghana remains safe".
