It has emerged that deprived parents and other single parents unable to fund the welfare of their family are selling their innocent children for as low as GH¢50.
According to a report by the a non-governmental organisation (NGO) by the name "Friends of the Nation", the price at which these children are sold are far cheaper than dogs or any other animal on sale on the market.
Advocacy officer of the Child Labour and Trafficking (CLaT) group, Kwesi Johnson wondered how human beings could be so callous and sell their own children for that low admonishing the parents not to think of the poverty situation they are living in and be engaging in such criminal acts.
Child labour and traficking remains one of the teething issues in Ghana today with families living on the coastal lanes of Ghana said to be prone to this illegal act.
YEN.com.gh had earlier reported of how arrests have been made on the Volta lake over the months as part of efforts to clamp down on human trafficking but more still seem to be done to eradicate the development once and for all.
