The Ghana Police Service is currently on a manhunt for two Chinese expats for allegedly importing tilapias that are not healthy for consumption into the country.
The two, identified as Zhang Ming and Chu Yong Shuai, imported large quantities of tilapia into the country without the necessary permit.
This, the police say, was a breach of section 130 (1) and (3) of Fisheries Act 2002 (Act 625).
A statement signed by the Public Relations Officer of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID), Olivia Turkson, said the police, upon finding out that the fishes were imported into the country without permit, ordered the Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) to test whether they were good for consumption.
However, the FDA's tests proved that the tilapias could pose health risks if consumed by the public.
A bench warrant has since been issued for the arrest of the two Chinese expats, but according to the police, they are both currently on the run.
The Police is therefore counting on the support of the public to help bring both men to book.
