Two people have been apprehended in Yendi by police in connection with child trafficking.
The police rescued six children from the suspects when they were being taken from Togo to Jaman in the Savannah Region.
According to the police, the arrested suspects will appear in court on Wednesday.
The Yendi Divisional Commander, Superintendent Richardson Kumeko told journalists the father of the children is complicit because he confessed to consenting that the children be taken away.
Following their arrest, the suspects reportedly told the Police they had the blessing of the parents to traffic their children.
When journalists interacted with the 70-year-old man, he confirmed that the suspects stayed with them for seven days and that they agreed to the conditions before the children were given to them.
He said he was compelled to do that due to poverty.All the children are of school-going age, but none is in school.
