A 12-year-old boy, Solomon Kweku Wise, who was allegedly kidnapped by an okada rider in Awutu Botoku, Awutu Senya West District, has been found.

Solomon went missing on Monday after his mother hired a rider to take him to school. When he did not return from school, attempts to locate him proved futile.

The okada rider was arrested on Tuesday morning after being captured on a nearby CCTV camera but denied knowing Solomon’s whereabouts.

A good Samaritan, Peter Essel, found Solomon and brought him to the police station. Solomon told the police that the okada rider dropped him at the Awutu Bereku lorry station, where he was taken away in a white private car. He managed to escape when the occupants stopped to buy an item during their journey.

After sharing his story with Peter Essel, Peter brought Solomon back to his parents, who were overjoyed to be reunited with their son.

In an interview with Adom News, Tufuhene of the Awutu Traditional Council, Nai Adawu Dua-Quaye, confirmed that Solomon was back home but not in stable condition.
