On Friday 24th January, 2019, Class F.M interviewed Mr. Kwaku Agyeman Duah, the father of Charity Agyeman (who at the time of the interview, had been reported missing).
In the interview, Mr. Duah made known steps he had taken to find his then missing daughter, descriptions that best suit his daughter’s features, the last time she was seen leaving home and how and where the public could channel relevant information to aid in finding her.
As a follow up to her father’s interview last week, Charity Agyeman has been interviewed today, Tuesday 29th January, 2019 on Class F.M’s morning show. Nearly a week after the earlier interview, Charity Agyeman returned home on the night of Monday 28th January, 2019. When asked by Benjamin Akakpo – the host of Class F.M’s morning show whether she was kidnapped, Charity Agyeman answered that she was not kidnapped.
As monitored by ghlinks.com.gh ,she was also asked where she went. To this, she gave a backstory of how she said she was sitting outside one day, when a male acquaintance (she calls DJ) approached and asked her what she was doing outside. According to Charity Agyeman, she narrated her ordeal of being allegedly maltreated by her mother and not feeling loved by her parents, to DJ. The stranger allegedly told her it isn’t at all abnormal that she would feel that way. The conversation then took a turn which allowed her to visit the man in his home (a kiosk) in Dzorwulu, Accra. She since paid her new found acquaintance, visits. After some time of visiting him, she felt that living with him would be a better option, as; living at home with her parents was no longer bearable. She then decided to leave home and stay with her acquaintance who lives in a kiosk, for a week. After a week of living with DJ, she went to Kasoa to stay with a guy (Mawuli) she met while staying with DJ. When asked how old the men who housed her are, Charity Agyeman said she doesn’t know the ages of the two men. However, she’s certain that he’s older than she is. Didn’t like her or have much.
Joining in the conversation in the studio, Hon. Cynthia Morrison, Minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection expressed her joy about Charity’s return and is hopeful of the return of some other kidnapped girls.
She also advised that Charity focuses on her education and limits such male acquaintances. She furthered mentioned that should there be a need to change schools for Charity, such change would be effected.
In relation to the surge in some Nigerians kidnapping some Ghanaian, the Hon. Minister appealed to the Ghanaian public not to write off all Nigerians because of some “bad nuts”. Finally, she reminded the Ghanaian public of the existence of many Ghanaians in Nigeria as well and how unfair it would be for all Ghanaians in Nigeria to be labeled as “bad” if one Ghanaian is to commit an offence.
