Accra Wesley Girls sensitised on kidnapping

pA day’s forum aimed at educating the students of the Accra Wesley Girls High School at the Awudome Estates in Accra, on how to identify potential kidnappers was held on Thursday.

It was organised by the Accra Regional Police Command Public Affairs Unit in collaboration with Lexta Ghana Limited, producers of Yazz range of products.

The Public Relations Officer of the Command, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), Effia Tenge, said the education drive was to create awareness in the wake of the recent kidnapping in some parts of the country.

She said the situation had become a concern to the Police administration hence the need to create awareness on the issue to help prevent such crimes in the society.

DSP Tenge said the education drive would be replicated in other schools in Accra.

The Police PRO urged the students to be mindful of personal information posted on social media, to avoid falling prey to criminal activities, adding, “Let your parents or guardian know who your friends are, decline odd job offer from people you hardly know’’.

DSP Tenge said the Police emergency lines 191 and 18555werealways availableto contact for redress.

The Head of Academics of the school, Mr Eric Sey, commended the personnel from the Police command for their initiative, stating that it would go a long way to create awareness on kidnapping.

Mr Sey called for more of such collaboration between the police and school to help fight crime in the country.

As part of the occasion personnel from the command organised a sketch on kidnapping.
