Three Burkinabes arrested for entering Ghana illegally

The Ghana Immigration Service has arrested three Burkinabes for allegedly entering Ghana illegally.

The three West African nationals were picked up on Monday, April 27, 2020 at about 11:40hrs at Babile in Upper West region en route to Techiman to seek for jobs with other Ghanaian nationals.

Their ages range between 35 and 39 years, according to ICO Ibn Yussif Duranah Abdul-Mumin Seidu, Public Affairs Officer of the Upper West Regional office of the Ghana Immigration Service.

They are reported to have used unapproved routes to enter Ghana.

A few weeks ago, 20 Burkina Faso nationals were also arrested for entering the country without approval.

The 20 were busted at Tumo-Dakpla junction in the Lawra Municipality en route Wa in the early hours of Wednesday, April 15, 2020.

Ghana and Burkina Faso have both recorded Coronavirus cases. Both countries have thus rolled out strict immigration rules, including border closures, to contain the spread.

President Nana Akufo-Addo has already promised to deal with foreigners who enter Ghana illegally.

He warned that “not only will persons who enter our country illegally be strictly dealt with, but so will Ghanaians who facilitate their entry.”

“These are unpatriotic acts and must stop. We cannot continue to allow a few persons, who are motivated by their own selfish, money-making interests, to endanger the lives of the rest of the population.”

Ghana’s Covid-19 case count currently stands at 1,671 at the time of filing this report.
