Kwaku Asiedu Manfo, son of Ghana's deputy inspector general of police K.K. Manfo, is not in the four people arrested over the abortive July 21 London blasts, Ghana's Foreign Ministry announced on Tuesday.

    This has been confirmed by the British Metropolitan Police, reports reaching here quoted a Foreign Ministry's statement as saying.

    One of the four arrested, who bares the same name as Manfo's son, used a "stolen identity" and the Ghana's High Commission in Britain has not yet meet him, the statement said.

    Meanwhile, Manfo's real son, who is said to be mentally handicapped, has been traced to a hotel at Watford, northwest of London, it said, adding the British Metropolitan Police would issue a press statement on the matter in due course.

    The man in question and three others on murder charges are on remand in police custody for conspiracy to murder people in the failed attacks in London, the second in a fortnight after the July7 bombs that killed more than 50 people.

    They are expected to appear in court on November 14.

    On July 7, four suicide bombers killed 52 people in attacks on London's transit system. Two weeks later, another attack failed when bombs carried by four men failed to fully detonate. Four suspects were arrested in Britain and Italy.
