The Ghana Immigration Service’s (GIS) Western Regional Command successfully apprehended sixty-six migrants on Wednesday, March 27, 2024, at various hideouts in Sekondi-Takoradi.

According to a statement from the GIS, the suspects, comprising 45 men and 21 women aged between 19 and 54, were recruited from towns like Tanda, Agnibilekro, Bondougkou, Nindo, and Aboisso Abidjan for cybercrimes and other illegal activities.

Investigations revealed that Ghanaians Romio and Akwesi Daniel were part of the syndicate recruiting Ivorians under the guise of an online business (QNET). While two suspects, Bamba Ladja (26) and Troare Yssouf (21), remain detained for further investigation, the rest have been repatriated.
