A video circulating on social media shows some Nigerian nationals believed to be residing in Kasoa in the Central Region, attacking some Ghana Immigration (GI) officers in their vehicle.
It is not immediately clear what the immigration officers who were in a pick-up vehicle with registration number GI 220 were in the area for.
But the attackers can be heard in the video shouting, “wetin, nobody dey move. Here na border?”
Some of the attackers are also seen attempting to mount pieces of blocks and wooden objects ostensibly to prevent the Immigration vehicle from either leaving or having access to the scene.
Unconfirmed reports, however, suggest the Immigration officers are said to have gone to check on the residence permit of the Nigerians.
The Immigration officers looked on helplessly in the video as they struggled to move their vehicle which had been impeded by blockade mounted by the Nigerian nationals.
The Spokesperson of the Ghana Immigration Service, Superintendent Michael Amoako-Atta who confirmed the incident to Graphic said: “they (the officers) were going on a normal operation to check on foreign nationals who don’t have legal stay and they met these Nigerians who were trying to resist.”
