The old man, feeling no pain or fear, dragged the innocent girl to Accra where he had been promised of a good trade should he sell his daughter.
The price his daughter was going for was a whopping GH¢100,000. It remains unknown the reason he chose to charge this amount but from all indications, he could have had plans of taking care of his personal means.
Director-general of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID), DCOP Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo Danquah, has revealed that the CID has released secret agents to act out as persons interested in buying the young girl.
Speaking to the media about the matter, DCOP Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo Danquah revealed that the suspect had actually contacted some people to help him to get a buyer.
