He said on Thursday, June 04, he received a distress call from the Police about the kidnapping of two children at Komenda.

According to him, the Police implored the community leaders to make announcements at their information centres and also help apprehend the perpetrators.

Mr Arkorful said with the help of the Queen Mother of Kissi, Nana Efua Badu II, the Police CID and the community leaders, Daniel was arrested but he refused to mention the names or his two accomplices.

On how Daniel was apprehended, he said a Police Woman posed as mother of one of the kidnapped children and bargained for the amount to be reduced on phone.

According to him, she bargained with the kidnappers until the amount was reduced to GHC 500 and the kidnappers provided a mobile money number for the money to be paid into.

He said the Police contacted MTN for that number to be blocked after the money had been paid and subsequently traced the owner of number to Kissi where Daniel was arrested on Sunday, June 06.

The Assemblymember expressed worry about the increasing level of crimes in the community and called for police patrols in the Area.

The Central Region Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Irene Oppong confirmed the arrest of the suspect, saying further investigations were ongoing.
