Accra-based Joy News is reporting the mysterious disappearance of the Gyaasehene of Tarkwa Dr. Nana Adarkwa Bediako III.
The disappearance apparently happened on Wednesday and appears to be the result of a kidnapping.
According to JoyNews, the Akeamehene of the Apinto Divisional Council in Tarkwa, Nana Kwabena Obo II, confirmed the disappearance.
He told Joy News the driver of the Gyaasehene, Paapa Kwesi, told him on Wednesday around 7 pm, he received a call from someone who said he saw the car of the chief parked in front of Abii National financial services, but he was nowhere to be found.
“He saw the car of Gyaasehene parked in front of Abii national with his two phones in it, his car key in the ignition but nowhere to be found,” Joy News reported.
Nana Kwabena Obo II is said to have added that he quickly went to the residence of the Gyaasehene to confirm, but he was indeed not at home.
The case has since been reported to the Tarkwa Police.
According to Joy News, Nana Kwabena Obo II added that he had a call from one Kakra on Sunday, a nephew of the chief threatening to eliminate within five days.
“He said he is giving me five days to eliminate the Gyaasehene because he is a threat to his work. He assured me that he will eliminate him, and if that happens, he is responsible,” the Akeamehene is reported to have said.
