Ghana police search for kidnapped Canadians

Police in Ghana are searching for an unspecified number of gunmen who they say abducted two Canadian nationals on Tuesday.

The two Canadian women were abducted at gunpoint and bundled into a vehicle outside their apartment in Kumasi, Ghana’s second largest city.

The Canadians, aged 19 and 20, were volunteers for Young Challenge International – a non-governmental organisation in Ghana.

The Canadian embassy in the country is collaborating with Ghanaian authorities to find the victims.

This isn’t the first time a foreign national has been abducted in Kumasi.

Two months ago a 30-year-old Indian man was abducted in a similar fashion. He was later rescued by the police.
