Mother, son missing en route to Afram Plains

Family of missing mother and baby travelling from Accra to Eastern region are appealing for information on whereabouts of their loved ones six days after they disappeared.

28-year-old Vida Azia Bolo and her one-year-old son went missing last Monday while en route from the Kwame Nkrumah Circle in Accra to Afram Plains.

Her husband Asoma Yussif told Starr News he has reported the incident to the Kotobabi police in Accra.

It is unclear where exactly they got missing.

Meanwhile, the Ghana Bar Association has added its voice to calls for the security agencies to double down rescue efforts for the three kidnapped Takoradi girls.

Ruth Quayson, Priscilla Blessing Bentum and Priscilla Koranchie were kidnapped between August 2018 and January 2019.

The ringleader of the kidnapping gang in the case, Sam Udoetuk Wills, is currently being tried at court after he escaped jail in December 2018 when he was initially arrested and detained at Police Cells.

Families of the young ladies and sympathizers have staged protests to exert more pressure for their rescue. Again, the families have petitioned the President and the Western Regional Minister for the rescue of the young girls.

The President of GBA Anthony Forson Jnr. in a speech read on his behalf by Nana Gyankomah Djaba-Mensah, a State Attorney at the commemoration of the 37th Martyrs Day held at Koforidua High Court on Friday, reminded the security agencies anxiousness of Ghanaians in seeing the girls rescued back.

“While we commend the security agencies for apprehending the suspected kidnappers of the two Canadian women, the country waits with bated breath to hear similar good news relating to the three residents of Tarkoradi”.
