A 21-year old student of Tarkwa Senior High School has reportedly been kidnapped in the Western Regional capital of Takoradi.
Augustina Ndaago, a first-year student studying Home Economics took an exeat from her Deputy Senior Housemistress to her mother who lives at Prestea.
But, the Housemistress was later called and told that Ndaago has not reached home.
The following day, her brother is said to have received a message that Ndaago has been kidnapped.
Ndaago has become the fourth girl to be kidnapped in Takoradi in less than a month.
Though the police have informed the general public that they are doing everything they can to find the girls, the public believes the police are not doing enough.

On Wednesday 23rd January, 2019, a Form One female student by name Augustina Ndaago, took an exeat from the Deputy Senior Housemistress to go to Prestea where her mother is.
According to the Housemistress, in the evening of that same Wednesday 23rd January, 2019, Augustina’s mother called to report that her daughter had not arrived home.
Unfortunately, on Thursday 24th January, 2019, around 12:30noon, Augustina’s brother called the housemistress to inform her that a “supposed” kidnapper had sent him a text message that Augustina together with two others had been kidnapped and was in their custody.
Upon hearing this, a report was made at the Tarkwa Police Station for investigations to be conducted.
As at today, 25th January, 2019, no news about Augustina has been received.
Augustina is twenty-one (21) years old and a Home Economics student.
The last few weeks has seen reports of kidnapping in the country mostly involving young girls.
Three earlier reported kidnapping incidents in the Western Region have triggered a social media campaign by Ghanaians urging the police to be more aggressive in finding the missing girls.
Another report was made in the Volta Region this week involving a 17-year-old girl.
An aunt of the 17-year old student Sonrise Christian High School, Ms. Beatrice Dzorvakpor, reported to the Ho Police command the case of her missing niece on Monday January 21, and presented evidence of a Whatsapp conversation between her and someone else using her niece’s phone who did not demand a ransom.
The victim was later found after the kidnapper dropped her off at Aflao, from where she could locate a friend.
