The Ghana Police Service (GPS) has announced that its Takoradi Divisional Command has arrested three persons for faking a kidnapping and demanding a ransom of GHS5,000.

The suspects as announced by the Police include Joana Krah age 29; Susana Awortwe age 27 and Francis Eshun age 27.

Reports indicate that the main suspect in the matter, Joana Krah conspired with the other two suspects, Susan Awortwe and Francis Eshun, to feign her kidnapping on Friday, October 22, 2021, after which a call was placed to her adopted father in demand for the ransom.

When Joana became aware that her adopted father had reported to the Police and an extensive search had commenced to find her, she showed up at the Takoradi Central Police Station, Saturday, October 23, to confess of only joking with her adopted father.

Not taking her actions likely, the Police has arrested her and the two accomplices.
