Fear has gripped parents in the Sekondi-Takoradi metropolis of the Western Region following the kidnapping of two young girls within three days. One of them was returned near her home a day after as a dumb person.
The first incident happened on Wednesday, August 15, when a 16-year-old senior high school student was kidnapped about a hundred meters from her house at New Site in Takoradi.
The girl who was abandoned the next day, Thursday dawn, close to her house, has been rendered dumb, perhaps traumatized by her ordeal.
She can only communicate by writing or texting on her phone. She drew a snake with two heads, wrote “two headed snake, rituals, waist beads, mute and juju” repeatedly on a paper handed her by the parent.
Her mother narrated the incident on Takoradi-based Connect FM’s Omanbapa morning show host, Paa Kwesi Simpson.
