A 13-year-old boy who was reported missing has been found tied to a tree on a plantation by the Ghana Police Service at Drobo in the Bono Region.
The boy was rescued on Sunday, May 28.
He is currently receiving medical attention at St. Mary’s Hospital at Drobo.
Information indicates that the boy was kidnapped by some unknown persons.
In the interim, the Police have launched a manhunt for the suspects.
Also on kidnappings, it was reported on March 26 that sixteen kidnapped persons aged between 12 and 20 years were found in a single room at Ankaful Zongo in the Cape Coast Metropolitan Assembly in the Central Region.
The victims are believed to be foreigners as they are unable to speak any local language.
They are suspected to be nationals of Burkina Faso, Togo, Mali, and Niger as they speak different languages including French.
The victims were reportedly kept in the room for about one month and without enough food and water, they had emaciated.
Upon picking up information, the Chief and Opinion Leaders of the Ankaful Community together with the media went to the house to verify but the main door had been locked.
Also, the security man guarding the house was nowhere to be found.
The Chief of Ankaful, Nana Abura Asankoma III, is appealing to the security agencies to launch an investigation and arrest the suspected kidnappers.
The Assembly Member of Cape Coast Ankaful Hon. George Anarful in an interview said, the matter has been reported to the Ankaful Police for a long time but the Police have failed to act.
According to him, the kidnapped victims have been signed to play football for some teams in Ghana but had since been caged and left to fend for themselves.
