21 Suspected Illegal Immigrants Busted in Ejisu

Twenty-one foreigners suspected to be illegal immigrants have been arrested in a 5-bedroom house that accommodated them at Akokoamong in the Ejisu Municipality of the Ashanti Region.

The suspects were picked up by residents of the area and handed over to the police on Thursday, September 22, 2022.

The suspected illegal immigrants, according to reports, have been housed in the building for the past three months.

“Every week, you will see a car come here in the evening and drop off some of them. None of us knows what is happening in the house, but you will always see them making calls for hours in the evening. Out of curiosity, I entered the house one day and asked them what their mission here was, but they claimed they were learning because the place is a school,” a resident said.

The resident massed up and reported the issue to the assemblyman for the area, who mobilised the unit committee members and stormed the house to detain the 21 persons.

Subsequently, they called the police to pick them up.

The assemblyman, Daniel Owusu, alluded to reports made to him that the immigrants have been defrauding people.

“Our suspicion is that they have been defrauding people because nothing here shows this place is a school, and they can’t tell us the job they’re doing. We have informed residents that they should report anyone or anything suspicious,” he narrated.

Some laptops and desktop computers were also retrieved from the house.

Ghana has been on wide alert as extremism widens in the West African sub-region.

Questions have been raised about the country’s porous border, especially with the re-entry of ‘Galamsey Queen’ Aisha Huang after being deported some few years back.

The Ghana Immigration Service has come under fire over its capacity to keep our borders safe from terrorist attacks.

For example, the Center for Democratic Development (CDD) Ghana, on September 15, said (GIS) should be invited by the Accra High Court to answer questions regarding the many loopholes leading to the re-entry of ‘Galamsey Queen’ Aisha Huang into Ghana.
