Expelled Chinese illegal miner Aisha Huang made the news on Monday, September 5, 2022, after it emerged that she was in court for sneaking back into Ghana.
Aisha Huang was arrested and deported from Ghana in 2018 when security forces uncovered her destructive illegal mining activities, popularly called galamsey.
But she is reported to have returned to Ghana through Togo, strategically shuttling between the two countries.
According to a Citi News report, the notorious businesswoman would surreptitiously leave Ghana for Togo anytime she picked up intelligence that security forces were gaining in on her.
