Ghana arrests Nigerian Yahoo Boys, others residing illegally in a major ‘crackdown’ (photos)

Some Nigerians have been arrested by the Ghana Immigration Service (GIS), in a crackdown on foreigners residing in the country without proper documentation.

The crackdown by Immigrations in Ghana has also led to the arrest of landlords and property owners who have rented out to non-Ghanaians with no immigration status.

According to the GIS, these rented properties and residences have become the haven for cyber fraudsters and other criminals.

“The use of such properties by persons who are illegally residing in the country make such owners liable of the offence of harboring an illegal migrant, as stipulated in Section 52(1)(b) of the Immigration Act 2000 (Act 573),” said a release signed by Comptroller-General,Kwame Asuah Takyi.
