Abigail Oppong, who was known as ?sister,? happened to be the fianc? of the suspect, but along the line, the suspect travelled to South Africa with Abigail who was then eight months pregnant without the knowledge of the family members.

According to Oheneba Agyemang Saffei I, a brother of Abigail on arrival to Ghana told family members the hell she had gone through in a hotel in South Africa.

Narrating her ordeal, she disclosed that the suspect Benjamin Kweku Luckland placed her on a plane back to Ghana after he had told her she lost her baby after gaining consciousness.

According to her, the suspect took her to a hotel on arrival to South Africa where he and a colleague gave her something to drink and that was the only thing she could remember later found herself in a pool of blood after gaining consciousness only to be told by the suspect, Benjamin Kweku Luckland that her baby died on delivery.

Upon confronting Benjamin to know the hospital where she delivered since she could remember it was in that same hotel room they slept on their arrival, Benjamin got offended and locked her up in the room without food for days till she again fell unconscious.

After she gained consciousness for the second time, she was placed on a plane back to Ghana all alone in her sick condition by the suspect. On arrival to Ghana, she narrated her ordeal to her elder sister, one ?Nana Dufie? and other family members, including the Otumfuo?s Akyeamehene.

A week later, the suspect called one ?Baaba,? a taxi driver who happened to be a friend to Abigail and asked him to pick him up from the Kotoka International Airport but should not inform Abigail about his arrival.

But out of suspiscion, the taxi driver informed Abigail on Benjamin?s arrival to Ghana and she in her sick condition joined the taxi driver to the airport where to her surprise, they met Benjamin and a lady holding a newly born baby. According to Baaba, Benjamin could not say a word when Abigail confronted him about the baby and the lady beside him.

He said the suspect quickly organized another taxi to carry conscious Abigail home.? He then joined ?Baaba?s? cub with the other lady and the baby and ordered him to take them to Somanya in the Eastern Region.

Upon reaching Somanya, he drove them to the outskirt of the town and when they got to a narrow path into the bush, the suspect asked him [Baba] stop and after paying him, they made their way through the path into the bush.

According to the driver, he suspects the child was going to be used for a ritual.

On the other side, Abigail fell unconscious on arrival to the house out of shock and was admitted at the Korle Bu teaching hospital where she passed on.

Benjamin?s mother, one Madam Dee was informed about the death of Abigail, her daughter in law since her son was nowhere to be found, but none of their family members attended her funeral.

Meanwhile, before Benjamin and Abigail left the shores of Ghana to South Africa, the belongings of Abigail were packed to the suspect?s mother?s house and are still there at the time of filing this report.

However, for the past eight months, the suspect and the baby are nowhere to be found.

This paper has also gathered that before this incident, the suspect had earlier duped a business woman, one Adwoa Pokua of the sum of GH?35,000, and was arrested.

He was later bailed out by Oheneba Agyemang Saffei, Akyeamehene of Osie TuTu Ababio II.

He jumped bail and has since not been seen.

Chief inspector Boakye of the Asokwa police station in Kumasi confirmed the story, disclosing that the suspect has since been declared wanted.

The Chief is therefore appealing to general public to report the where about of the suspect to any nearby police station for a handsome reward.
