Is this another kidnapping or just a coincidence? A 14-year-old Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) applicant is accounted for missing in Koforidua in the Eastern Region, missing four papers.
Valerian Osei-Nyarko who visited his dad in Koforidua was placed in a public bus last Saturday to return back to Kumasi where he has been staying with the auntie, to start the BECE yet was said to have got down from the public bus at the Koforidua station.
His father, Joseph Osei-Nyarko told the host of Takoradi-based Connect FM morning show, Nhyiraba Paa Kwesi Simpson that the boy has been living with his aunt in Kumasi since the death of the wife.
According to the father, the boy, a pupil of Unique Standard Preparatory School in Atonsu, only visited him in Koforidua during vacations and went back to Kumasi whenever school reopens.
“He came to visit me on Thursday, May 30. On Saturday, I personally accompanied him to the co-operative station at about 1:30 pm and bought a ticket of a Kumasi bound bus for him and I left,” Mr Osei-Nyarko recounted.
He said he called the boy’s aunt in the evening to find out if he arrived home safely only to be told he had not come home.
Alarmed by the development, the father said he started looking for his son but to no avail.
According to him, he went to the lorry station in Koforidua to check whether the vehicle got to Kumasi.
“We were told at the lorry station at Koforidua that the boy got down from the bus but when it became full and was taking off, they waited but he didn’t show up,” he said.
He said the station managers then refunded his money to him.
Mr Osei-Nyarko said he reported the matter to the Police in Koforidua, and also caused announcement of a missing person to be made on various radio stations in Koforidua but yet to get positive feedback.
