Doris Agyei, a resident of Asonomaso at Abuakwa and accountant at Mpasatia Senior High School has been rescued after being allegedly kidnapped Wednesday dawn.
According to Akoma FM’s Ibrahim Abubakar, just when he, together with his team were about leaving the house of Doris, her mother received a call from someone saying Doris is lying in a bush at Mmetiam.
She was abandoned in a bush at by her abductors who are yet to be arrested.
Found conscious but traumatized, she has been sent to the Abuakwa Polyclinic for medical attention.
The Ashanti Regional Police Command is still on a manhunt for the unknown gunmen who robbed the residents and kidnapped Doris in addition.
The incident which happened, around 1am Wednesday, August 17, has put fear in the residents.
Family sources told Mizzyblog the abductors contacted them and demanded a ransom of GH₵20,000.00 for her release.
According to reports, the robbers couldn’t enter the apartment through the gate but broke through a window.
The apartment is a twin two bedroom edifice that houses two families. Report says both families were robbed before Doris was taken away, after the husband and children had been dragged outside by the robbers.
Speaking to TV3’s Ibrahim Abubakar Wednesday on Midday Live, residents of the area noted because the enclave is a new community, they’ve been battling robbers without any response to their call for security improvement.
“This is not the first time. It has happened before. But this one is so serious. We’ve been complaining but they (police) have not been listening to us. They should come to our rescue in dealing with these people,” a resident told Ibrahim.
According to an eyewitness who is also a tenant of the house, they heard the robbers had fled with Doris the time they heard the noise and got to the scene.
The perpetrators, who were two, according to the husband of Doris, were young guys who are between their mid 20s to early 30s.
The police are currently working tirelessly to get the robbers to face the full rigors of the law.
