- Audio recordings have surfaced implicating the immigration service's Ashanti Region second-in-command
- The service has launched a probe into the conduct of the officer in question
Ghana Immigration Service (GIS) has launched an internal probe following the leaking of a tape that allegedly implicates one of the service's high ranking officers in the Ashanti Region.
Recent reports have it that the GIS has launched an internal probe into the conduct of Chief Supt Peter Adu Appiah, Head of Enforcement and Intelligence Bureau in the Ashanti Region. The probe follows the airing of a tape on local Accra radio stations which seems to implicate the service's Ashanti Region second-in-command.
According GIS Head of Public Relations, Superintendent Francis Palmdeti, the tape puts the officer involved in a precarious position, although he failed to any more elaboration towards its contents.
“Some recordings on some local FM stations in Accra have come to our attention and we have invited the officers to come to the head office," said the GIS Head of Public Affairs.

"I am not at this moment in the position to start commenting on something that is under investigation. Individuals mentioned in the tape will surely have the opportunity to also state their side of the story,” he said, speaking to Accra based Joy FM.
According to todaygh.com's report, the audio tape was recorded by two men who visited Aisha Huang purporting to have come Flagstaff House, in Accra. The duo visited Aisha when at the same time immigration service operatives were attempting to apprehend her.
Aisha Huang, along with four other Chinese nationals, was remanded to prison custody because the presiding judge did not believe that they'd be available should he grant them bail.
Meanwhile, several pressure groups have demanded that the charges leveled against the Chinese nationals be reviewed, saying that they're too light.
