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.
