"They See Ghana As Fertile Ground For Cyber Fraud"—Ghana Immigration Arrests 70 Nigerians For Entering Country Through Illegal Route
The Volta Regional Command of the Ghana Immigration Service has intercepted 70 Nigerian migrants who have entered Ghana through unapproved routes.
Fifty-one of them were intercepted at the Asikuma border post on February 3, while the other 19 were spotted at the Ho Main Lorry Station on February 9, as they were preparing to travel into the capital, Accra.
The Regional Commander revealed that transport syndicates were responsible for carrying Nigerians across the Benin and Togo borders to dump them at the Ghana-Togo border.
The syndicates left them to find their ways and means to enter the country, according to a report by Myjoyonline.com.
"What is happening is that our brothers, especially from Nigeria, use transport syndicates. They will carry Nigerians across Benin, Togo and dump them at the Ghana-Togo border and ask them to find their ways and means to enter Ghana," he stated.
"Be that as it may, that is how the okada (motorcycle) boys find business. They are transported through these unapproved routes into Ghana."
