It’s so sad to see these innocent girls soliciting for sex and are not bothered about sexually transmitted diseases. Anytime you confront these young girls their reasons for engaging in prostitution is that there are no jobs, as a parent I would also appeal to government to create more jobs in this community to put an end to this disheartening situation our children find themselves in,” a parent narrated to Ultimate FM.

Meanwhile the Dunkwa police commander, Dela Dzansi says his outfit is not aware of the new development, but will begin investigations into it.
