The Ghana Immigration Service (GIS) has vowed to ruthlessly deal with Nigerian nationals who assaulted its officers. The border control agency has established a committee to probe the attack on its men by some Nigerian nationals at Budumburam, near a refugee camp in the Central region of the West African nation.
Some Nigerians in a video which has since gone viral are seen preventing officers of the Immigration Service on duty to check on the resident permits of the foreigners in the area.
The Nigerians are seen blocking the vehicle the officers are driving in with pieces of cement blocks and wooden objects to prevent the officers from leaving the scene.
The officers looked on helplessly as they could not move their vehicle from the scene as a result of the blockage.
The head of public affairs at the Ghana immigration service, Superintendent Michael Amoako Atta reacting to the incident said a committee has been set up to probe the matter.
He said the service will not “sit idle for this to go unanswered.”
