A 24-year-old suspect, Kwaku Asare, and and his 28-year-old friend, Kwame Asante, are in police grips for conspiracy and attempted human trafficking at Oda in the Eastern Region.
The 16-year-old victim is a nephew to Kwaku Asare.
The two suspects’ plan was reported to the police by the Unit Committee Chairman for Akyem Etwereso, Kofi Appiah.

The suspect after a thorough interrogation admitted having conspired to sell the victim.
They are in police custody for further investigation and prosecution.
