GPS and the Immigration dismiss reports on arrested ‘terrorists’

The Ghana Police Service and the Ghana Immigration Service issued a joint statement in response to reports published on Thursday by the state-owned Ghanaian Times about 48 foreign nationals held as terrorists but now missing.

The statement, signed by ACP Grace Ansah-Akrofi of the Police Service and CSI Michael Amoako-Atta of the Immigration Service, states that there is no blame game between the two security agencies, as claimed in the report.

“For the avoidance of doubt, we would like to state that in September 2022, 48 foreign nationals were arrested by the police and Immigration in two separate operations at Ekyem, Achiase, and Akokoamong near Ejisu in the Ashanti Region for engaging in illegal Network Marketing” (QNET).

“All 48 suspects were profiled in accordance with our two institutions’ standard operating procedures and were repatriated to their respective home countries between September 26th and September 29th, 2022.”

As a result, the agencies urged the public to disregard the publication, advising the media to “be circumspect in their use of the term ‘terrorists,’ and avoid using the word loosely and irresponsibly, creating unwarranted fear and panic in a peaceful society such as ours.”

They assured that they will continue to partner and collaborate in carrying out their responsibilities to the state.

“Our two state security institutions continue to collaborate and partner with one another in carrying out our respective mandates for the benefit of our beloved country.”
