Unknown to them, the kidnappers were in the Toyota Corolla S and they had been following them for some time. They were just waiting for the right time to commit the crime
As soon as the girls stepped out of the Uber and attempted to enter their hotel where they were lodging, the kidnappers giving warning shots forced the girls into the Toyota Corolla S and sped off.
The incident occurred around 8:00 PM on Tuesday, 4th June 2019 at Silver Spring in Kumasi, the Regional Capital of Ashanti Region.
