Boy, 4, Kidnap …Nigerian Grabbed At Maamobi
A Nigerian is in the grips of the law for attempting to kidnap a four-year-old at the Maamobi Polyclinic in Accra.
The suspect, yet to be identified, was arrested after an eyewitness raised an alarm while he was luring the 4-year-old boy into a waiting vehicle with three other suspects in it, Sunday morning.
The suspect reportedly run into a nearby house and changed his cloths but his cover was blown after residents of the house gave him up.
The arresting mob then took him to the Kotobabi police station and was rushed to the Police Hospital for treatment following the attack on him by the mob.
The boy is safe with the police while the others in the car sped off. The boy was saved by the watchful eye of an eyewitness.
The latest news of kidnap adds to the tall list of kidnap cases to have hit the country in recent times.
Already, the country is reeling over the inability of the police in making any headway in the search of the three Takotradi girls.
So far Ruth Quayson, 18; Priscilla Mantsebea Koranchie, 15; and Priscilla Blessing Bentum 21, have gone missing six months, five months and one year ago respectively raising doubts over the police persistent assurance in finding the kidnapped girls.
So far one person, Samuel Oudotek Wills suspected to have kidnapped the three girls in Takoradi is standing trial for the offence.
What remains a mystery is the insolvent of Nigerian nationals in all the kidnapped cases so far reported in the country.
This comes on the back of last week’s arrest of the alleged kidnappers of the two Canadians which included three Nigerians.
Currently, two other Nigerians are being held over the kidnapping of the three Takoradi girls in the Western Region.
On Friday, two other Nigerians were shot dead in the Upper West region for robbery.
