24 Nigerians Arrested For Entering Ghana Illegally


Customs Excise and Preventive Service (CEPS), Division of the Ghana Revenue Authority, in the early hours of Tuesday, arrested 24 Nigerians for allegedly entering the country illegally.

It was revealed that the immigrants admitted entering the jurisdiction but refused to give reasons for their entry.

Chief Superintendent, Mr Shradrach Azangweo, South Tongu District Commander of the Ghana Immigration Service, told the Ghana News Agency that the Nigerians would be moved to Aflao to assist in further investigations.

He added that the immigration service would not allow them to continue their journey and they would all be repatriated after their COVID-19 status so that they do not endanger the lives of other people.

He further said the culprits were assisted by 'Okada' riders and public transport drivers to the point of arrest.

He later warned the drivers and Okada riders, as they continued to facilitate the movement of the West African nationals into the country as it can endanger their lifes and other members of the public.
