Juaso (Ash), May 10, GNA – Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Andrew Anyani, the Municipal Police Commander for Asante-Akim South, has asked parents to pay more attention to the security of their children.
He said the recent reported cases of murder of children in the Municipality under bizarre circumstances, indicated an emerging trend of child murder in the Municipality.
There was therefore, the need for adequate and strict security measures by parents to protect their children.
They should not leave the children unaccompanied especially in secluded areas in order not to expose them to danger.

DSP Anyani urged members of the Assembly to educate members in their communities to be conscious about the movement of their children and report any suspicious character in their localities to the police.
He said the police was working around the clock to unravel the two cases while putting in place measures to avert future occurrence and called on the public to volunteer information to enable them fight crime.
