The Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) has stormed the streets of the Nation’s capital, Accra, to seize some cars they say did not go through the necessary custom clearance.

According to him, most of the cars were brought through unapproved routes thereby evading the necessary duties hence the move to impound them.

Mr. Nti in media interview revealed that same exercise was carried out last year by the GRA, leading to the confiscation of 754 vehicles.

The GRA boss added that some owners came to pay the required duties with penalties while owners who failed to do so, had their cars auctioned subsequently.

Mr Yankey added that the said vehicles will be auctioned on May 1, – May 2, 2018 as required by law for interested persons to bid for them.
