Some Nigerian nationals have been captured attacking personnel of the Ghana Immigration Service at Kasoa in the Central Region.
In a viral video, the Nigerians are seen heckling the immigration officers who were in a pick-up vehicle with registration number GI 220.
Some of the attackers blocked the road using wood, pieces of blocks to ensure the immigration vehicle did not leave the scene.
Meanwhile, others were in the background hurling invectives at the nmmigration officers, with one heard saying “wetin, nobody dey move. Here na border?”
Reports suggest the immigration officers were subjected to the attack when they went to inspect the residence permit of the Nigerians.
Spokesperson of the Ghana Immigration Service, Superintendent Michael Amoako-Atta said the officers were just doing their check duties but the Nigerians tried to resist.
"They (the officers) were going on normal operation to check on foreign nationals who don't have legal stay and they met these Nigerians who were trying to resist,” he told the Graphic Online.
This comes after another Nigerian national was arrested in connection with the kidnapping of three girls in Takoradi in the Western Region.
The suspect, Samuel Wils, has however, refused to disclose the location of the victims, according to the police.
