Global Affairs Canada (GAC), the managers of Canada's diplomatic and consular relations have confirmed reports that Canadian citizens have been kidnapped in Ghana.

According to local media reports, the two women were abducted in Kumasi, the capital city of the Ashanti Region.

GAC did not confirm specifics or offer information about the number of people abducted, citing security concerns.

Canadian officials are working with local authorities, and are in touch with the families of the individuals who were abducted, Global Affairs said.

“The Government of Canada’s first priority is always the safety and security of its citizens,” said an email from Global Affairs spokesman Guillaume Bérubé.

“For this reason, we will not comment on or release any information which may compromise ongoing efforts or endanger the safety of Canadians.”

He said in a follow-up email that no further information could be given because of Privacy Act provisions.

In a statement to the National Post Wednesday evening, Ghanaian high commissioner Joseph Ayikoi Otoo said he had spoken with the Inspector General of Police in Ghana and officers are working to find the vehicle the Canadians were taken in.
