33 Children Saved From Being Trafficked, One Arrested

The Ghana Immigration Service has rescued 33 children from being trafficked to Nigeria from Tatale and its surrounding communities in the Northern region.

The Northern Regional Commander of the Ghana Immigration Service, Mr. Eric Afari, said the children were aged between 10 and 17 years adding that the rescue was made possible through the collaboration and cooperation of their Togolese counterparts.

Meanwhile, one person has been arrested in connection with the child trafficking and is in police custody while investigations are still ongoing.

“This case is under investigation, and all found culpable will be dealt with according to the law…the incidence of child trafficking is on the increase along the Eastern Corridor, especially at Zabzugu, Tatale, Nkwanta North and South Districts,” Mr. Afari explained to the Ghanaian Times.

He cautioned parents who give their children to foreigners to be sent away for monetary gains, to desist from such acts warning that anyone caught would be severely dealt with.
