This story is unfolding quite fast…
Hours after the government announced that the kidnapped Canadian girls have been rescued, it has also emerged that the ringleader of kidnappers has also been arrested.
Seidu Yakubu Mba, who is reportedly one of the kidnappers who have been airlifted from Kumasi to Accra, is said to be a popular fan of Kotoko football club.
A number of residents of Kumasi say he’s been terrorizing people in the city.
He allegedly once went to the Kotoko training ground and physically assaulted their foreign coach.
The kidnappers were airlifted to Accra on a military plane today following the rescue of the Canadian girls.
