Pregnant woman, 11 other Nigerians missing from Ghana’s Police custody

Twelve individuals with Nigerian names, including a woman who is significantly pregnant, have vanished while in the care of the Ghana Police Service.

The Nigerian High Commission in Ghana is reportedly working feverishly to obtain further information on the case, including access to the suspects, according to a report from a local online publication called The Herald.

The suspects’ state of life is unknown.

The suspects were detained separately, according to a report in The Herald on September 11; however, they have since vanished after being taken to the National Operations Department (JOC) at Police Headquarters in Accra for what appears to be an interrogation.

The last heard of them was when they were handed to the police. It is not clear, whether the Police administration repatriated them to their country over what is suspected to be their criminal activities here in Ghana, the report said.

The names of the first suspects arrested in Kasoa, a suburb of Accra who are missing are Michael Eke, Chukwudi Moses, Prince John Akossey, Udoka Njoka, Nnaji Ekezie, Elachi and Nzete Chukunanu Best.

The Herald says it had cited a picture of their arrival at the National Operations Department (JOC) at Police Headquarters.

The second group of five Nigerians, including a pregnant woman were arrested over a robbery incident at Caprice, Accra.

Their names were Prince Anthony Chiobi, Izichuku Igwenagu, Emmanuella Chinwetalu (the pregnant lady), Ahamafula Onwukwa and Godfrey Chukuebuka, aka, Caleb.

They are also said to have gone missing, however, one Ikebana, said to be the husband of Emmanuella Chinwetalu, the pregnant lady, is at large.
