Background

According to the police, Joana Krah faked her kidnapping and demanded a ransom of GHS5,000 from her adopted father.

The suspect conspired with Susan Awortwe and Francis Eshun, to feign her kidnapping on Friday, October 22, 2021, after which a call was placed to her adopted father for a ransom.

When Joana became aware that her adopted father had reported to the police and an extensive search had commenced to find her, she showed up at the Takoradi Central Police station on Saturday, 23 October to confess to pranking her adopted father with the kidnapping hoax.

Further police investigations led to the arrest of her co-conspirators for their complicity.
