The Ghana Police Service have arrested the young men who were captured in a disturbing viral video.
These individuals, known as Kwame Sarpong and Ibrahim Mohammed, were seen brandishing scissors and knives while threatening to harm and even kill anyone who dared to resist their attempts to snatch items.
Acting swiftly, the police managed to locate and arrest the suspects at their hideout in Aputuogya on November 19, 2023.
The duo, who identified themselves as members of the Aputuogya gangsters, are now in police custody, where they are assisting with ongoing investigations.
Similarly, the police in Assin Fosu, in the Central Region of Ghana, have nabbed a 19-year-old lady named Comfort Aidoo for allegedly orchestrating her own kidnapping.
It is believed that Aidoo collaborated with her boyfriend in order to extort a huge ransom from her parents. Initially portrayed as a victim, Aidoo’s status has now shifted to that of a suspect.
According to her mother, Aidoo contacted a neighbour in Breman Adumanu, located in the Asikuma Odoben Brakwa District, to inform them of her supposed abduction.
In an attempt to secure their daughter’s release, the parents complied with the demands and paid the ransom through a mobile money number provided by the alleged kidnapper. However, as the kidnapper’s story and their daughter’s account did not align, the parents decided to involve the police in the matter.
