The Ghana Police Service has begun scanning the La Tawala Beach in Accra following an explosion at the beach, in which some four children got gravely injured.

Reports said the children found a grenade at the beach and were playing with when it went off and hurt them badly.

According to the Police, the scan is necessary to ensure there are no more explosives at the beach and its environs.

Meanwhile, residents of the area are alarmed by the incident and they are requesting the police to do everything to forestall a possible recurrence.

Public Relations Officer of the Greater-Accra Region Police Command, DSP Efia Tenge explained that “our experts are doing what is needed to find out whether there any more of such ammunitions could be found in any part of the community.”

She could, however not tell if the search would be extended to the wider community.

“Our shores have been very safe so if we have seen something like this, it calls for broader interrogation,’ she added.

As part of measure to further ensure public safety, DSP Efia Tenge also advised that guardians ensure children don’t touch unfamiliar objects.

A statement from the Police Command also indicated that “police should be notified of strange objects in any vicinity.

Meanwhile, the father of all four children injured in the blast, Oko Adams is grateful to God they survived.
