Police have arrested Mahamadu Fulani, a herdsman who allegedly took a 10-year-old boy from Kintampo and demanded a ransom of twenty Ghana Cedis (Ghc 20,000.00) before his release, in Yendi.
A police report said on January 6, 2020 at Kintampo in the Bono East Region, the suspect took the boy along with cattles belonging to his father to the grazing field for grazing and to return the same day.
However, later in the day, the suspect called the father of the boy on phone to inform him that he had kidnapped the boy and would release him only if the father paid the ransom.
The suspect failed to return the boy and left the grazing field with him.
Police investigation led to the arrest of the suspect two days later, on January 8, 2020 at Yendi in the Northern Region.
The victim has now been rescued to be reunited with his father.
