After the Special Operations team from National Security in a joint operation with Canadian security team rescued the two kidnapped Canadian girls, it turned out the kidnappers were Nigerians.

This revelation has worried a lot of Ghanaians and they have taken to the media to cry out on how some Nigerian are trying to turn Ghana into an unsafe place with their series of kidnapping.

We have so far counted 4 popular kidnappings which turned the country into a frenzy from January to 12th June 2019 and all had Nigerian as the culprits.

1. It has now been confirmed that it was indeed Nigerians who masterminded the kidnapping of the two Canadians girls. The security operatives first arrested two of the kidnappers. The two led the police to the other 6 Nigerians who are behind the kidnapping.

The two Canadian ladies were in Ghana on International Volunteer activities and they were kidnapped in Kumasi in the Ashanti Region after they stepped out of their hotel room where they were lodging as they perform their activities on the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology.

2. One of the famous kidnapping news in Ghana is the kidnapping of the 3 Takoradi girls. Priscilla Mantebea, 18 years, Priscilla Blessing Bentum, 21 years and Ruth Love Quayson, 18 years have been missing for close to one year now.

Early this a Nigerian, Samuel Udoetuk Wills was arrested in connection with the kidnapping. He has confessed to luring the girls but he is refusing to speak on the whereabouts of the missing girls up till now.

3. In April 2019, 3 Nigerian were arrested in connection with the kidnapping of the Consular-General and Head of Mission of Estonia to Ghana, Nabil Makram Basbous.

Luckily, the diplomat was rescued by the security. It has also been confirmed that Nigerians are behind that particular high-profile kidnapping.

4. Again in May April 2019, the Kasoa Police in the central region of Ghan arrested 3 Nigerian in connection with the kidnapped and murder of a two-year-old boy. The police are still investigating the kidnapping and murder.

In as much as Nigerians are mostly behind kidnappings in Ghana, it worthy to note that there are very good Nigerians in Ghana who are going about their life within the boundaries of the law.

The former star midfielder for France and Juventus who was all smiles as he left the Anti-Corruption Office of the Judicial Police (OCLCIFF) in France said he was asked several questions about tournaments, including the 2016 European Championship, the World Cups in Russia in 2018 and in Qatar in 2022.

‘It hurts. It hurts for everything I can think of, everything I’ve done. It hurts, it hurts. But after all, they did their job and then we tried to answer all the questions,’ he said.

The investigators also asked about French club Paris Saint-Germain, which was bought by Qatar in 2011.

Investigators are thought to be particularly interested in a lunch that Platini attended in 2010 with then-President Nicolas Sarkozy, the Emir of Qatar and his foreign minister shortly before the 2022 World Cup was awarded.

According to Daily Mail,  Platini had a hand in deciding where these tournaments would be played as the president of UEFA and as a vice-president at world soccer governing body FIFA.

Platini had denied any wrongdoing and French authorities did not announce any charges against the former France and Juventus player.

‘It was long, but given the number of questions it could not be different,’ Platini said after his release.

‘I feel totally foreign to any of these matters. This is an old affair, you know it, we explained it. I have always expressed myself with full transparency in all the newspapers. That’s it, it goes on, they investigate, they search.’

William Bourdon, Platini’s lawyer, said his client was innocent of all charges and that he had been questioned on ‘technical grounds.’
