A senior lecturer at the University of Ghana Business School, Thomas Buabeng has suggested a research by people in academia to provide possible solutions to end the spate of kidnappings in Ghana.

According to him, “a research into the recent kidnappings in Ghana can expose the trends in the cases, the remote causes, the people mainly involved whether Ghanaian nationals or foreigners and the targets of these kidnappers.”

Dr Buabeng’s proposal follows the rescue of two Canadian girls in Ghana by a joint police and National Security Team.

Speaking on Adom FM‘s Dwaso Nsem show, Dr Buabeng said “the research will give us a fair idea of how best we can deal with the phenomena by considering the possible rescue strategies adopted by the security agencies so far.”

“We all as Ghanaians need to be careful about the publicity of these kidnappings in Ghana because it does not make the country look good and safe in the eyes of the world. The best we can do is to assist the security agencies with information,” he admonished.
