The Ghanaian immigration office has allegedly arrested over thirty different Nigerians who tried to illegally migrate to the neighbouring country.

According to a report gathered by Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NiDCOM), the affected citizens have been released.

The Commission revealed that the Nigerian mission in Ghana was able to plead with relevant authorities in the country not to press charges against the Nigerians arrested.

The Commission says: “There are in total about 50 Nigerians detained by the Ghanaian Immigration authorities because some were moved away from Aflao and kept somewhere else.

“The Consular team from the Nigerian mission have paid the detained Nigerians consular visits twice, and have secured their release. However, as instructed by the NCDC they need to do their COVID 19 tests before returning to Nigeria.

“As soon as this is done they will return with the next set of returnees. However, it should be noted that 11 of the detainees however escaped according to Ghanaian immigration.

“The Nigerians in Diaspora Commission will not relent in demanding fair treatment of Nigerians around the world.”

Here is the tweet of NIDCOM below confirming the arrest:
