“What is happening is that our brothers, especially from , use transport syndicates. They will Nigerians across Benin, Togo and dump them at the Ghana-Togo border and 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.”

According to Nantuo, the illegal immigrants hire a large bus that transports them at dawn to bring them into the capital. However, he assured the general public that the Regional Command were on high alert and would ensure that all illegal immigrants are intercepted.

 

Nantuo believes that this is because “they are beginning to see Ghana as a fertile ground for cyber fraud” and vowed that the government will not tolerate them.

“The question is the influx of late? It is because they are begginning to see Ghana as a fertile ground for cyber fraud. We will not tolerate that. We will send them back to Aflao for them to be quarantined for the 14 days. Within that time, investigations would have been done as to whether they would be deported or prosecuted.”he said.
