Nursing student goes missing

A 24-year old student of Offinso Midwifery Training College in the Ashanti region has gone missing for five months now.

Eva Boahemaa disappeared after a man believed to be her Italy- based suitor picked her up from school on November 4, 2016.

According to her father, Yaw Manu, one Okyere Baffour in 2015 proposed to marry the nursing student via video call but she turned him down to concentrate on schooling.

Later in the same year, Okyere Baffour who claims to be a native of Essumenya visited Ghana but moved to stay with them at Bekwai for two months.

A marriage deal was then sealed and traditional knocking rites were performed.

Okyere Baffour promised to come back to Ghana in December the following year to perform the marriage rites.

But surprisingly, he showed up a month earlier in school on a day the school was going on break and picked and picked Eva ostensibly to take her home.

Information available suggests Eva was suspicious and questioned Baffour about the timing of his visit.

Nonetheless, she joined the man and since then she has not been seen since.
Though a complaint has been lodged with the Offinso police, efforts to trace her whereabouts have proved futile.
