The Nima Divisional Command of the Ghana Police Service has begun investigations into circumstances that led to the death of two children at a mechanic shop at Alajo, in a suburb of Accra.
The fatal incident happened on Friday, October 15, when bodies of the two – both 3 years old – were found at the back of a broken-down Mercedes Benz saloon car parked at the shop.
A press release issued by the police over the weekend noted that crime scene experts were deployed to the scene for examination, after which the bodies were conveyed to the Police Hospital morgue for preservation and autopsy.
“We wish to advise parents and guardians to take the safety of their children seriously and to always keep an eye on them whenever they are out to play,” the press release signed by Director of Public Affairs Superintendent Alexander Kwaku Obeng said.
“Automobile mechanics are also entreated to enclose their shops to control access to unauthorised persons including children.
“They must also ensure that children and suspicious people found loitering around their premises are reported to the police for immediate action.”
