VIDEO: Heated confrontation between Ghana Ports and Harbour Authority security and GIS personnel


A video capturing a heated confrontation between Ghana Ports and Harbour Authority security personnel and Ghana Immigration Service (GIS) officers at an Immigration office has surfaced on social media.

Reports indicate that a group of approximately 12 security personnel from the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority (GPHA), stationed at Meridian Port Services (MPS), allegedly forcibly entered the Ghana Immigration Service (GIS) office at MPS.

This incident reportedly occurred following a disagreement during standard vessel checks on the MSC DYMPHNA.

Allegedly, the GPHA security insisted on searching the GIS officers after they had completed their inspection duties.

However, one GIS Inspector objected, stating that while they could search their bags, the individual officers could not be searched by males.

This refusal reportedly led to verbal altercations and physical harassment between the two groups. Subsequently, more GPHA security officers arrived at the scene to apprehend the GIS officers involved in the disagreement.

The situation escalated into a chaotic confrontation between the GPHA security officers and the GIS officers, resulting in the tearing of the uniform of a GIS officer identified as AICO II Boadu.

The video, which has since gone viral, has raised questions about the relationship between the two agencies and the need for better communication and conflict resolution mechanisms.

Authorities from both the Ghana Ports and Harbour Security and Ghana Immigration are yet to comment on the incident. However, the video has sparked discussions among Ghanaians about the need for professionalism and cooperation among security agencies to maintain peace and security in the country.
