Abducted Canadian women rescued - Government

National Security Operatives, on early Wednesday morning, successfully rescued the two Canadian women recently abducted in the Ashanti Region.

A statement issued and signed by Mr Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, the Information Minister, said details of the operation and the ongoing efforts to ensure that similar incidents were successfully resolved would be made available in a subsequent press briefing, scheduled for 15 hours today.

“Government continues to encourage the media and commentators to be circumspect in public commentary on security matters in order not to compromise other related operations," the statement said.

"Citizens and travelers are once again assured that Ghana remains safe”.

The women, who were doing voluntary service with a non-governmental organisation in the Ashanti Region, were abducted on June 5 at Ahodwo, a suburb of Kumasi.
