Takoradi: Wife blows false ‘kidnap’ alarm on husband

The unfolding drama of the tragic tale of kidnapping that has bedeviled the people of Takoradi appears to present fresh scenes with each passing day as a supposed wife accused her husband of kidnapping his own children..

George Aduful, a driver was nearly lynched Wednesday following the false alarm.

According to an eye witness, while at her shop she “saw this private car passing by but it was speeding, and I heard this noise help me help me…”

But for the timely intervention of the police, a mob that accosted the car would have lynched the suspect. This development has led to the mob besieging the Effiakuma Police Station with clubs.

This development is happening at a time pressure seems to be mounting on the police to find three girls who have been kidnapped in the Western Region town of Takoradi.

The girls – from separate families – were taken from various locations in the town since last year and nothing has been heard about their whereabouts.

Narrating his own version of what happened, the Municipal Chief Executive of Effia-Kwesimintsim, Kojo Acqua, said “They chased the car and brought the car to the [police] station. The interrogation they had with the people in the car revealed that these are husband, wife and children.”

Explaining further the Police in Effiakuma, said Kahdija, a Sierra Leonean and supposed wife of Mr. Aduful, accused his husband of kidnapping his own children.

But Mr. Aduful denies the accusation, stating that his wife’s reactions follow his threat to divorce her and elope with his two daughters.

While thanking the people of Sekondi-Takoradi for the “love they have shown and what they are doing,  Kojo Acqua, the MCE conceded that but for the timely intervention of the police the suspect would have been lynched”.

“The crowd is so big. They are afraid they may take the law into their own hands. So they have transferred the case to the Police Regional headquarters,“ he said.

In the latest development, the Western Regional police P. R.O DSP Olivia Ewurabena Adiku has confirmed to Joy News that indeed George Eduful is the husband to Khadija. 

She explained that after initial investigation they have realized that the man and the woman had issues hence she prevented the man from taking their daughters to school but the man forcefully took them in his Nissan pickup and later the wife joined but continued to struggle with the man.

The woman according to DSP Olivia will be charged for raising the false alarm and causing scare in the Metropolis.
