The National Security is on the heels of persons and close associates of the two Nigerians who were part of the gang that kidnapped two Canadians in Kumasi.

Minister of state in charge of National Security, Bryan Acheampong said the National Security that undertook the operation will not rest till they bring all culprits to book.

Of the 14 persons arrested, three are Nigerians, three Fulanis and some Ghanaians, including Seidu, aka Mba, a staunch supporter of Kumasi Asante Kotoko.

Eleven of the suspects were picked up in a building located in a thick bush at Antoa Krobokrom at 11:00pm on Tuesday, where the two Canadian girls were also rescued.

Commenting on the operation on Accra-based Oman FM as monitored by, the Abetifi MP said the security agencies are going to the bottom of the kidnapping case and will investigate everyone including persons that the Nigerians contacted when they arrived in Ghana.

“This is a case that we intended to bring to an end and hence anyone that came into contact with the Nigerians from the day that they entered Ghana on 28th through the Aflao border, contacts that they made in Ashaiman, contacts they made in Tema, contacts they made in Accra, contacts they made in Kumasi Sawaba, contact they made in Abrepo, everybody, everybody that they had made contact with for the period that they were here, we are going to make sure that we pick them up to wrap up the conversations, as we speak, it is still ongoing…,” he said in the interview.

Mr Acheampong added that the National Security wouldn’t want to make more statements about this because of how extensive the investigations are on the subject matter.

He added that the security services have started profiling all the arrested suspects ‘to make sure that we get all the information needed, they are collaborating and there are no gaps in the information that we receive, so it’s still ongoing.’
