The Ghana Immigration Service has repatriated the 20 Burkina Faso nationals who were arrested at the Babile inland post near Lawra in the Upper West Region following their illegally entry into the country.

The Public Affairs Director of the Upper West Regional Immigration Service, ICO Ibn Yussif Duranah Abdul-Mumin told Kasapa 102.5 FM that the illegal immigrants were quickly sent back into their home country after being detained momentarily and screened thoroughly by health professionals.

They were onboard an O.A branded bus with registration number AS 699- 09 from their home country en route to Sampa, Techiman and Kumasi on Tuesday, April 28, 2020, GIS officials stated.

The ECOWAS nationals were, however, intercepted at about 19:00hrs by personnel at the Babile checkpoint, according to the Public Affairs Director of the Upper West Regional Immigration Service, ICO Ibn Yussif Duranah Abdul-Mumin.

“Their migration into Ghana is an economic-related issue. They entered into the country through unapproved routes”, the Public Affairs Director explained.

The suspects comprise 18 males and two females aged between 15 and 28 years.

The command, however, warned that it will deal ruthlessly with any Ghanaian aiding foreigners into the country.
