The families of the three kidnapped Takoradi girls are urging the Ghana government to show and apply the same energy and urgency used in finding the two Canadian women in rescuing their children as well.

The organization said the parents of both women have been in contact with their daughters and are grateful to Ghanaian police and government, and the Canadian government for their actions.

Two young Canadian women who were kidnapped while volunteering in Ghana have begun their journey home after being rescued by authorities in the West African country on Wednesday.

YCI named the two volunteers as Lauren Tilley and Bailey Chitty.

Nkrumah said, "At 1900 hours, a first arrest was made, by 21:15 hours, one of the persons who is an accomplice directly involved in this incident was also arrested by the joint team running this operation".

Canadian officials thanked the Ghana government for its cooperation "in the resolution of this case".


Kidnappings were rare in Ghana until a spate of abductions late a year ago, most for ransom.

Ghana has seen a rise in kidnappings recently, but President Nana Akufo-Addo has vowed to crack down on the perpetrators amid fears that tourism could be harmed.

Mr Ofosu-Ampofo has not commented on the allegations, but NDC general secretary Aseidu Nketia said his arrest was an attempt to "intimidate us and frustrate our activities".

Two Nigerians have already been linked to the kidnappings of the three Takoradi girls who are still in captivity.
