A 20-year-old student of the National Vocational Training Institute(NVTI) at Bole in the Savannah Region escaped a kidnap attempt.
The suspects, according to him, kidnapped him from his school premises during supper on Sunday.
Narrating this in an interview, the victim said the suspects hit him on his neck, making him go unconscious. He woke up and found himself at the Bole Royal Cemetery.
The two men asked for a number they could call to demand ransom. However, he called his schoolmates to tell them about the incident.
Upon suspicion that he [the victim] might have called for help, one of the suspects went to check who it may be.
He saw an opportunity to run for his life, leading to a struggle between him and the second suspect. He managed to overpower and run back to his school.
The principal of Bole NVTI, Alhassan Salifu, speaking about the incident, said students are now living in fear as they sometimes go out of the school’s premises in search of water.
He has appealed to the government to strengthen security and police patrol around the school.
