Return stolen bag on ‘humanitarian grounds’ – Quiz mistress
Dr Elsie Effah Kaufmann, the moderator of the National Science and Maths Quiz who had her bag stolen on the final day of the competition, is pleading with the individual who picked the bag to return it “on humanitarian grounds”, a family member has disclosed.
Belinda Yaa Dankwaa Effah, sister of the quiz mistress, took to her Facebook wall to announce this on Saturday July 1.
She posted: “Message from the NSMQ mistress, Dr Elsie Effah Kaufmann: ‘On humanitarian grounds, please bring back my bag.’”
Meanwhile the Ministries Police station is investigating the theft of the bag.
The black bag with red zipper was stolen at the National Theatre after the final of the 2017 edition of the quiz on Thursday, June 29.
As of July 1, the bag had still not been found. Dr Kaufmann is reported to have been disturbed following the theft as she was planning to do a quick return to her other engagements after the competition.
The bag contained her phone, ID card, car keys, and keys to her house, and other items.
She realised her bag was missing after she presented the trophy to contestants from Prempeh College, winners of this year’s competition.
