Here's an AFP telling of the tale:

"Accra (AFP) - Two Canadian women have been abducted at a golf club in Ghana, police said Thursday, a rare attack in a country seen as one of the safest in West Africa.

The Canadians, charity volunteers aged 19 and 20, were taken on Tuesday evening in Kumasi, Ghana's second city, some 200 kilometres (125 miles) northwest of the capital Accra, David Eklu, the assistant commissioner of police said in a statement.

"Police Command is investigating a complaint of kidnapping at Ahodwo, Kumasi Royal Golf Club, at 8:25 pm on 4 June, 2019, where two women of Canadian nationality were kidnapped," Eklu said.

"Investigation started immediately upon receipt of the complaint, and the security agencies are working closely together to get them rescued, and the perpetrators arrested," the statement added.

Eklu told AFP the two kidnapped women had been travelling in an Uber with a third Canadian woman.

When they reached their destination, the pair got out of the taxi first and were taken, he said.

The third woman then went to alert the police with the Uber driver.

"When the Uber driver saw the action, he drove off with the third lady" to inform the police, he said.

The police did not release the names of the women and said it was working closely with the Canadian embassy to try to locate them.

They described the pair as volunteers with a group called Youth Challenge International, a Canadian international development organisation headquartered in Toronto."

And from the CTV story:

"When asked about the Canadians' abduction by CTV News Chief Anchor and Senior Editor Lisa LaFlamme on Thursday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he was unable to comment on specific cases. Instead, he spoke more generally about his government's work to help Canadians in trouble abroad.

"We have really made sure that everything is being done to support Canadians who get into situations of difficulty around the world," he said during an interview following a D-Day ceremony in France.

Police are withholding the names of the two Canadian women.

Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, Ghana's president, vowed to crack down on kidnapping after an Indian man was abducted and rescued in Kumasi in April."

I tremble with both concern and rage at what could be happening to those two young ladies.
