Some suspected Ivorien nationals said to have registered in the mass voter registration exercise at Banda Kabrono in the Bono Region have been arrested and sent to Sunyani, the capital of the Bono Region.
Graphic Online’s correspondent in the Bono Region, Emmanuel Adu-Gyamerah reports from Sunyani that officials of the Ghana Immigration Service (GIS) have arrested 52 foreign nationals who reportedly sneaked into the Banda District to take part in Ghana’s mass voters registration exercise.
They reportedly registered on August 6, 2020, the last day of the mass exercise at various registration centres in the Banda District.
They were picked up by the security officers on Friday, August 7, 2020 whilst they were trying to return to their base at Tambe in Cote d’Ivoire after obtaining their voters identity cards, reports Adu-Gyamerah.
They were on board a KIA truck with registration number, ER 4612- X and were arrested by the Immigration officers at Drobo in the Jaman North District at about 6.00 am.
They have since been transported to Sunyani to be screened by officials of the GIS.
