The Ghana Immigration Service (GIS) has warned that it would prosecute landlords and property owners who rent out their facilities to foreigners without proper immigration documents.
The GIS said the practice of accommodating illegal immigrants over the years led to a high spate of criminal activities that was hard to monitor.
The Public Relations Officer of the GIS, Superintendent Michael Amoako Attah said the service would not relent on its effort to clamp down on illegal immigrants.
“If you are landlord and you want to give your property out to a non-Ghanaians, the law says that be very sure that, that person has proper residential status from the Ghana Immigration service.
If we come to your premises and such people are there [without documentation] then you have contravened the law,” he said.
Superintendent Amoako Attah said this after officers of the GIS were attacked by Nigerians, in Kasoa when they went to check their residential documents.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that some Nigerian nationals had been captured attacking personnel of the Ghana Immigration Service at Kasoa in the Central Region.
In the viral video, the Nigerians were seen heckling the immigration officers who were in a pick-up vehicle with registration number GI 220.
