The Anti-Human Trafficking Unit of the Ghana Police Service has commended the traditional authority and people of Akpoklikope, an Island on the Volta Lake for their vigilance which contributed to the rescuing of nine children from child trafficking on the Volta Lake.

It also led to the arrest of perpetrators of the crime, Aku Kedevi, a fishmonger, and Michael Boti, a fisherman. The couple has since been sentenced to a total of 34 years in prison for conspiracy to commit crime.

Chief Superintendent Mike Baah who heads the Anti-Human Trafficking Unit of the Ghana Police Service, told GBC’s Rebecca Ekpe in an interview that the sentence is meant to be a deterrent to other people engaged in the heinous crime.

He threw more light on the case explaining that Kedevi deceived the parents of the victims that she was sending them to school, only to hand them over to Boti for fishing activities for a fee.
