The Ghana Police Service has revealed that the “security agencies are working closely together” to rescue two female Canadians who were kidnapped at Ahodwo in the Ashanti Region.

The two, aged 19 and 20, are volunteers with a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) known as Youth Challenge International based in the region.

They were picked up around the Kumasi Royal Gulf Club at about 8:25 p.m. on 4 June 2019.

This was contained in a press statement issued by the Director-General of the Public Affairs unit of the Ghana Police Service, ACP David Eklu.

The release further cautioned journalists and the media to be circumspect in their reportage and asked the public to volunteer any relevant information via toll-free line 18555 or 191 (all networks) or 0299202240.

The police said any information can also be sent to any of their official social media handles or presented directly to the Public Affairs Officer of the Ashanti Regional Police, ASP Godwin Ahianyo on 0244288019.

In April this year, an Indian was also kidnapped in the Ashanti Region and later rescued.

Mr Om-Parkash Chudry was kidnapped on Thursday, 25 April 2019 by unidentified gunmen.

The kidnappers, numbering about three, assaulted him and pushed him into a car and sped off.

Mr Chudry, however, struggled with the kidnappers, overpowered them and took refuge at a nearby house and later called the police, who subsequently rescued him in the early hours of Friday, 26 April 2019.
