Commercial motor riders have rescued six children from the hands of an alleged kidnapper at Omandjor near Sowutum in Accra, Joy News reports.
The suspect, George Oyan, a 37-year-old mechanic and the owner of a drinking spot at Amamole, a nearby community, was arrested on Monday over allegations that he had picked up the children who were playing football into the bucket of his pick-up after he asked them for directions.
According to the Ga West Divisional Police Command, some Okada riders came to their rescue after the children started shouting for help.
“According to the children, on their way going, they got to the place and signalled him to stop. According to the children, this man refused to stop and was still driving. The children became alarmed and some of them actually jumped out of the moving pickup.
“It was the jumping out of the pickup which attracted some Okada men, who saw what was happening. They tried to block the vehicle, called the police and the man was arrested,” Amasaman Divisional Police Commander, Chief Superintendent, Chris Klomegah confirmed the incident.
He said, “all six children are all safe and are with the families.”
