The Central Region Police Command has arrested a 265-year old boy at Gomoa Dunkwa for allegedly trafficking 21 children.

In an interview with Accra-based Citi FM, the Central Regional Public Affairs Director of the Ghana Police, ASP Irene Serwah Oppong said Daniel Essel was transporting the children in a Hyundai Grace with registration number GW 6076-17 from Ekumfi Arkrah.

She narrated that “they (the patrol team) stopped the car and they interviewed the driver but then they were not convinced with the answers coming from the driver, so they referred the driver, the car and the children to the Anti-Human Trafficking Unit of the Ghana Police Service in the Central Region.”
