A dramatic incident unfolded in Assin Dompim, Central Region, where three officers from the Ghana Immigration Service were implicated in the alleged theft of Gh¢200.00 from a local trader’s shop.

The officers, dispatched from a newly established pure water factory in Assin Fosu, were tasked with delivering sachet water.

On Tuesday evening, they visited the shop of Akos Tiwaa, who had previously reported missing money.

To verify her suspicions, Tiwaa set a trap with Gh¢200.00, which reportedly disappeared from her money box soon after the officers completed their delivery.

The disappearance sparked widespread anger among local youths, prompting a search that ultimately revealed the money under the doormat of the officers’ vehicle.

This discovery heightened tensions between the community and the immigration officers, leading to the arrival of additional Immigration Service personnel and police from the Central North Regional Police Command to quell potential unrest.

The accused officers, consisting of one official and two casual workers as reported, vehemently deny the allegations.

They were taken to the police station for their safety while investigations continue. Despite efforts to obtain an official statement from the Immigration Service proving futile, sources suggest that authorities are committed to launching an independent inquiry into the matter.

It is important to emphasize that the officers are presumed innocent until proven guilty, and no arrests have been made thus far in connection with the incident.
