Ghana police rescue kidnapped Canadian girls

Police in Ghana have rescued two Canadian women who were kidnapped in Ghana’s second city, Kumasi, last week.

The two were found on Wednesday morning, according to a statement signed by Information Minister Kojo Oppong Nkrumah.

The rescue follows combined efforts by Ghanaian and Canadian authorities after the two students, aged 19 and 20, were kidnapped at gunpoint. 

They were seized a week ago outside their apartment in the Ahodwo district and bundled into a car.

Kidnappings have been a rare occurrence in Ghana until recent times where abductions of locals and foreigners have dominated the news.
