An old man believed to be in his early 70’s was on Monday night busted by the police after trying to kidnap a young girl believed to be 8 years. It took the intervention of passersby at the Kumasi VIP bus terminal to prevent a kidnapping case from occurring.

The culprit who gave his name as Kofi Amoah was severely beaten and was only saved by the intervention of the police.

The eight year girl disclosed she was approached by the man who lured her into boarding a vehicle with him. According to her, she knew the man from nowhere and was saved by the police when they tried boarding a vehicle to a destination.

Kofi Amoah, the old man however denied kidnapping the young girl but indicated he rather decided to assist the girl after hearing from her that she was not comfortable living with her mother.

He said, he picked her from Odineho Kwadaso, a suburb of Kumasi. It is however unclear what he was doing with the girl at the station after picking her from Kwadaso.

The police has however picked up the matter and commenced investigations into it.
