The latest kidnap case recorded in Mpohor in the Western Region of Ghana is a hoax after all.
This was confirmed by the Assembly Member for the Mpoho Electoral Area, Kofi Bentil. According to him, his checks at the Mpohor Police Station has revealed that no such report has been made to the police while he, as an Assembly Member, is not aware of such occurrence.
The lady’s boyfriend Stephen Kumi has also confirmed that his girlfriend, Stephanie, who was allegedly kidnapped, is back home.
As sighted on 3News, Connect FM reported days ago that another case of an alleged kidnap has hit the Western Region this time around in the small town Mpohor.
The alleged victim was named as Stephanie Kumiwaa, 26, whose lover claimed could not be traced since Sunday, October 17.
Kumi had told Connect FM’s Omanbapa morning show host Nhyiraba Paa Kwesi Simpson, “I didn’t hear from her again after the long chat on phone, only for me to be called the next day by some guys using my girlfriend’s phone that they had kidnapped her and that I should pay GH¢2,000, otherwise she would be raped and used for rituals.”
Reacting to the development on Connect FM’s Omanbapa morning show hosted by Nhyiraba Paa Kwesi on Tuesday, November 2, the Assembly Member for Mpohor said he is not aware such issue.
