That Ghana Immigration Service personnel at the Aflao border has arrested over 200 illegal immigrants who used unapproved routes into the country. The immigrants are largely from Mali, Niger and other West African countries.
The Immigration Service Sector Commander at Aflao, Assistant Commissioner Fredrick Badu Duodu applauded his personnel for engaging in this serious operation and also thanked the residents of Aflao for guiding them in this operation. He added that it was the residents who gave them information on some unapproved which these illegal immigrants use to enter the country.
The MCE for Ketu South, Hon Maxwell Lugudo congratulated the security agencies in the area who helped to the operation a success. He pleaded with the government that there are lots of equipment and amenities the Immigration service in Aflao needs to make their service to the country successful.
He added that there are lots of unapproved routes in the area and most of these areas are without street lights. It then becomes difficult for the officers to operate there, therefore street lights are needed. Again, there is no bus to convey officers to guard these areas, unless they use motorbikes.
With this, not many officers can go there and few officers working there poses lots of danger. He pleaded with the President and able minister to extend their support to security services in Aflao.
