YEN.com.gh understands that the Ghana Immigration Service (GIS) has impounded a caravan with registration number AS 4077 U, which was loaded with 150 ‘Kufuor gallons’ of diesel.
Information available suggests that the diesel, suspected to be stolen from Libya, was being transported via the high seas to some parts of West Africa.
According to the Akanu sector commander, Chief Superintendent Attoprah Godson, the vehicle carrying the products was intercepted around 4:30 am of Saturday July 6, 2019.
The operation was carried out by a three-member patrol team between Zukpe and Gali Dzafe within the Ketu North District of the Volta region.
Per a report by Starrfm.com.gh, the products, upon arrival in Togo, were smuggled into Ghana through unapproved routes, avoiding security checkpoints and joined the main urban road.
The leader of the three-member team, Inspector Samuel Ampofo, revealed that the team spotted the vehicle being led by a man on a motorcycle, but both the driver and the motor rider fled when they sensed the presence of the team.
