The Executive Director of Citizens Watch Ghana, Simon Asore has urged the youth in border communities in Bono Region to fight child trafficking.
Mr Asore made the call during a community forum on Awareness Creation and Sensitization on border Security Management in Berekum in the Bono region.
The project dubbed; Enhancing Citizens Participation in Border Security Management was sponsored by the Center for Democratic Development Ghana (CDD-Ghana) with funding from the US Embassy in Ghana.
Mr Asore said the location of Berekum in the region is a fertile ground for activities suck as child trafficking, drugs and terrorist activities.
He observed that foreigners from Ivory Coast coming into Ghana from either Dormaa or the Sampa border will pass through Berekum to other parts of the country.
He, therefore, charged the Citizens, especially the youth to play a critical role to fight child trafficking and terrorism which is fast gaining ground in the West Africa sub-region.
The Berekum Municipal Crime officer, DSP Naa-kologo Agbegne advised the public to volunteer in sharing information to enable the police to fight crime and protect lives in the Municipality.
