‘Kidnapper’ remanded in custody

The Tamale Circuit Court yesterday remanded Adamu Asumah, who allegedly abducted Ishmael Hussein, a member of the Anas Tiger Eye investigative team into police custody until October 19.

The Northern Regional Police Public Relation (PRO), ASP Ebenezer Tetteh, who disclosed this to The Ghanaian Times said the suspect was charged with kidnapping and assault.

Hussein was rescued on Saturday by the police after being held hostage several minutes by Adamu Asuma and others.

ASP Tetteh said the police command was treating the Hussein kidnaping seriously and that efforts were being made to apprehend the others on the run.    

He hinted that police investigation revealed that the suspect was a relative of one of the judges implicated in the Anas expose.

According to him, five people abducted and confined Hussein in a room in Tamale, at a location popularly known as ‘Filling Point’ in Wurishe, a suburb of Tamale.

He said the police rescued him and managed to arrest Asumah while the other guys took to heels.
