The Ghana Police Service in Takoradi has started investigations into the cause of death of the three children who were burnt to death at Bidifuom in Takoradi in the Western Region.

According to the Takoradi District Police commander Superintendent Peter Ofori Donkor, the initial priority is for the police to collaborate with the Ghana National Fire Service to ascertain the cause of the fire which killed the children on December 27 while other investigations are carried out.

Narrating the death of the children to Pulse.com.gh, Supt Ofori Donkor said “at about 2:30am, the police had reports that there was fire outbreak at the Takoradi Market Circle at a place called Bidifuom. Police moved to the scene and it was observed that a kiosk was totally destroyed by fire. Three children were burnt to death in the course. Their bodies have since been sent to the Effia Nkwanta Regional Hospital for autopsy”.

News of the death of the two girls and the boy aged between 1 and three years broke at the time when the Bidifoum part of the Takoradi Market Circle was full of merry makers in the heat of the West Side Carnival celebrations.

While some faction alleges that the mother of the children had locked the kiosk in which the three children were sleeping with candle to join the merry makers, other resident suspect arson by the father of one of the kids, who is alleged to have been at loggerheads with the mother.
