“Ghana is a nation of laws. We have various laws regulating how children are to be treated. We are not passing judgment at this stage. What we are seeking to do is to involve the law enforcement agencies, the Ghana Police Service especially, in investigating the matter and if at the end of the day, there is evidence that someone can be charged for an offence under our law, we will go after that person and charge that person.

“But for now, we are also seeking and depending on the things that we are able to conduct, and get evidence, then we can take a step further.”
