Miss Krah pleaded guilty to all the charges levelled against her by the prosecution.

Presiding judge Michael Ampadu passed the judgment after she allegedly faked her kidnapping to demand GHS 5,000 from her adopted father.

Joana allegedly had collaborated with two others – Susanna Awortwe and Francis Eshun – to allege kidnapping to extort monies from her adopted father.

But after her adopted father reported the matter to the police and an extensive search commenced, she showed up at the Takoradi Central Police Station on Saturday, October 23.

She then confessed joking with her adopted father, the police narrated in a statement on Monday, October 25.
