The captors had ambushed the young women on a driveway at Ahodwo-Nhyiaeso near the Royal Gulf Club in Kumasi, whilst returning from a food joint in an Uber car.

They were bundled into a Toyota Camry saloon car and whisked away after stepping out of the car to go to their hostel at the Silver Spring Avenue.

That prompted the Canadian Government to swiftly issue a travel advice for its citizens travelling to Ghana, warning of “violent crimes” in the West African nation.
