President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has assured the country that his government will deal with the recent spate of kidnappings in Ghana.

Speaking to members of the Ghana Anti-Corruption Coalition (GACC) at the Jubilee House on Monday, 29 April 2019, Nana Akufo-Addo said: “We are all concerned about this phenomenon of kidnappings which we have not known. Our brothers and sisters in Nigeria have known it. But we have not known it in this country and we need to do something about it to make sure that it doesn’t become a feature of our society.”

“I am very determined on the issue and decisions are being taken, as we seek what will be a clear manifestation of the determination, I have to deal with this matter,” he added.

Last week, a 30-year-old Indian businessman Umpakan Chodri was abducted by gunmen in Kumasi in the Ashanti Region.

He managed somehow to escape and sought refuge in someone’s house until he was rescued by the police.

Before Umpakan’s abduction, a 61-year-old diplomat, Nabil Makram Basbous, the Consular-General and Head of Mission of Estonia to Ghana was also kidnapped during his morning walk in his neighbourhood in Accra. He was rescued later by the police.

The Criminal Investigations Department (CID) is currently under pressure to also rescue three girls who were kidnapped last year in Takoradi in the Western Region.
