Twelve people with Nigerian names including a heavily pregnant woman have gone missing from the custody of the Ghana Police Service.
The report from a local online platform, The Herald indicates that the Nigerian High Commission in Ghana is currently making frantic efforts to get more details on the matter including access to the suspects.
It’s unclear if the suspects are alive or not.
The Herald in its report on Monday, September 11 said the suspects were arrested separately, but have since gone missing after they were sent to the National Operations Department (JOC) at Police Headquarters in Accra for what appears to be an interrogation.
The last heard of them was when they were handed to the police. It is not clear, whether the Police administration repatriated them to their country over what is suspected to be their criminal activities here in Ghana, the report said.
The names of the first suspects arrested in Kasoa, a suburb of Accra who are missing are Michael Eke, Chukwudi Moses, Prince John Akossey, Udoka Njoka, Nnaji Ekezie, Elachi and Nzete Chukunanu Best.
The Herald says it had cited a picture of their arrival at the National Operations Department (JOC) at Police Headquarters.
The second group of five Nigerians, including a pregnant woman were arrested over a robbery incident at Caprice, Accra.
Their names were Prince Anthony Chiobi, Izichuku Igwenagu, Emmanuella Chinwetalu (the pregnant lady), Ahamafula Onwukwa and Godfrey Chukuebuka, aka, Caleb.
They are also said to have gone missing, however, one Ikebana, said to be the husband of Emmanuella Chinwetalu, the pregnant lady, is at large.
