The Ghana Police say they have rescued one Nana Ottupre Kwagyan, the chief of Kubease, a suburb of Kwahu Abetifi in the Eastern Region, who was allegedly kidnapped by some unknown men.
The law-enforcing agency said this in a statement shared via its Facebook page today, October 16.
“Preliminary preliminary police report has indicated that the alleged victim, in the early morning of today, Monday, October 16, 2023, was forcefully taken from his house by some six (6) persons to an unknown location.
“The swift intervention of the police following a report of the incident led to the rescue of the victim at Abene. The victim is currently in safe custody while the investigation continues to get the perpetrators arrested,” the statement said.
Earlier today, musician-cum-politician Kwame Asare Obeng, popularly known as A Plus, shared a post on his Facebook page that seemed to indicate he received a distressed call from some relatives of Nana Ottupre Kwagyan calling on the police for help.
“Good morning. A plus. Please help post this and help in any way you can. This is Kubeasihene at Kwahu Abetifi, Eastern Region. Early this morning, he was taking [sic] by thugs from his home with machetes and sticks. We reported [it] to the Abetifi Police, but they said they can’t help. Please help get our father back.”
