Ghanaian actor and entrepreneur, John Dumelo has cautioned Ghanaians to stop linking kidnapping cases to Nigerian nationals.
Replying to a tweet by a fan who was scared to let the child go to school because of the series of the kidnapped cases recorded recently, the maverick actor said, he thinks it’s a bit unfair to link kidnapping to Nigerians.
Kidnapping is kidnapping and the act shouldn’t be attributed to a particular group of people, he added.
“I agree with him but you can’t blame people for linking it certain nationals. Kidnapping cases have increased in recent times and almost all apprehended culprits are of that nationality a fan replied.
For some time now Ghana has recorded a series of kidnapping cases and almost all the cases had Nigerian nationals playing a major role in it. The recent case was the abduction of the two Canadian girls Tilley and Bailey Chitty, 19 and 20 years respectively in Kumasi who was rescued and flown out of Ghana.
Eight persons were arrested in connection with the kidnapping of the two Canadian girls at Kumasi in the Ashanti Region. The suspects include five Ghanaians and three Nigerians.
But According to John Dumelo, kidnapping is a despicable act and must not be linked to certain nationals.
