Mother of 2 remanded over fake kidnap call


By:brightwebtv.com/bright Agyapong

The Takoradi Magistrate Court has remanded Lucy Awortwi, a mother of two who placed calls to falsely allege that her two children had been kidnapped.

Lucy who was on a police enquiry bail was rearrested Tuesday and put before court charged with deceit of a public officer. She will return to court on Valentine’s Day, February 14.

Her false kidnap claim sent the police in Takoradi on a wild goose chase when it later emerged that the wanted ‘kidnapper’ was her ex-husband who had her blessing to travel with the children.

The police said Lucy, in her late 20s, admitted placing the call to the police to arrest her ex-husband to teach him a lesson by capitalizing on her ex-husband’s request to send their two children to visit their grandmother at Beposo in the Shama District.

The police maintained that Lucy had called the police emergency line to complain that someone had kidnapped her two children. And with increasing reports of kidnapping in the country, particularly in Sekondi-Takoradi, the police quickly deployed personnel to the location Lucy had provided, only to realize she had misled them with a premeditated ploy to put her ex-husband in trouble.
