Four women have been arrested for depriving their children of an education and putting them to work.



The Ajumako Police Command in the Central Region's Ajumako Enyan Essiam District has detained four women for depriving their children of an education and forcing them to work as children. 

The children are all under the age of twelve. 

The women and children were seen riding in a tricycle from Ajumako Kokoben to Ajumako Essaman before being apprehended in front of the District Police station in Ajumako. 

The youngsters were transferred to the farm instead of going to school on Thursday, March 24 at about 5:30 a.m., according to an investigation done by EIB Network Central Regional Correspondent Yaw Boagyan.
Speaking to the Parents of the Children, they stated, they were going to farm with the children who have never walked in the school since they don’t have money to provide for their education. 

They claimed that if they left them in the house, no one would look after them, therefore they needed to send them to the farm. 

As a result, they begged the police to forgive them. 

ASP Stephen Tetteh, the Ajumako Enyan Essiam District Police Commander, explained that he arrested them because they were violating the children's right to education, and advised parents not to deprive their children this right. 

He stated that the parents who were arrested would be processed and taken to court.

Mr. Nana Ato Dadzie, the District Examination Coordinator, and Mr. Alli Mensah, the inchage of Information Communication Technology in the District Education Office, on behalf of the Ajumako Enyan Essiam District Education Director, Mr. Nana Ato Dadzie, the District Examination Coordinator, and Mr.Alli Mensah, the inchage of Information Communication Technology in the District Education Office, advised parents to refrain from involving their children in hard labor and send them to school. 

They will educate parents on the need of enrolling their children in school, according to Mr. Nana Ato Dadzie.
