Four Nigerians have been arrested in connection with the kidnapping of Canadian nationals.

The two Canadian nationals who were abducted last week have since been rescued and transported to Accra for health screening.

A team of top national security operatives rescued the duo from the kidnappers in a fierce gun battle at a hideout at slums in Kumasi.

They are believed to have had support from Ghanaians before perpetrating the crime.

Special Operations team from National Security took over operations to rescue the girls on the evening of Monday, June 10.
