The Domestic Violence and Victims Support Unit (DOVVSU) is sending parents of the three children who were kept indoors for eight years to see a Clinical Psychologist on Monday July 29.


Joy News' Beatrice Adu who has been to the house where the children were kept in Madina said the three were kept under serious insanitary conditions away from friends and family since their birth.


She said the children shared their space with livestock. The back of the house leading to the four-bedroom apartment has an animal farm filled with ducks, fowls, and sheep. The surroundings of the house is overgrown with weeds, Beatrice reported, adding that the corridor leading to their room is also filled with a strong stench. Meanwhile, the Madina DOVVSU is appealing to the public to help trace the family of the parents of the children.


Their mother, Jane Mensah Lartey, hails from Sempe in Accra while the father, Fledge Mensah Lartey is said to hail from James town, also in Accra.
