''Reunification was done at Ashaiman Social Welfare and Community Development Office. Facilitated by the Municipal head Mr. Archibald Mensah,'' she told YEN.com.gh.
Touching on how Dzifa's family brimmed with excitement after meeting their princess, Asamoah said:
''The family of Dzifa Dwumie was extremely happy to find her. The girl was happy as well but insisted she wants to live with her father who was not present during the reunification process.''
Meanwhile, Asamoah further mentioned that social welfare officers denied a self-proclaimed father from taking a boy who was missing but found home.
Kelvin Mawuli was reported missing on November 24, 2021, and also discovered in Ashaiman.
The 11-year-old said he did not know the family members who came to meet him even though the man insisted Kelvin was the son he lost seven years ago.
''Social welfare officers denied his family custody of the boy as they could not prove beyond a reasonable doubt,'' Asamoah said.
