Freed Canadian women return home

The two Canadian women who were rescued from their kidnappers by the security agencies in Kumasi last Wednesday have arrived home safely in Canada.

The two women, Lauren Patricia Catherine Tilley, 19, and Bailey Jordan Chitty, 20, left Ghana last Wednesday evening aboard British Airways flight BA78 to Heathrow Airport in London, the United Kingdom.

They arrived at Heathrow to a waiting private jet arranged by the Canadian government to fly the two to their home country.

They were met on arrival in Canada by government officials and family members.

The two ladies were abducted by their captors from the Royal Gulf Club in Kumasi in the Ashanti region on June 4, 2019, but were rescued by a National Security operation on Wednesday dawn.
