The said deportees arrived in the Central Region and also got registered and processed by the National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO) and the Ghana Health Service (GHS) for easy reintegration with their families.

"We've been able to identify the communities where they live in Ghana. We are expecting a total number of 336. The only challenge we have is that, we don't actually know when they are coming. To be honest, we received the information last night, at 2am," Spokesperson of the NADMO, Eric Arthur revealed in an interview with the media.
