The Tema Regional Immigration Command has caught a Nigerian national for endeavoring to get a Ghanaian visa at the Passport Application Center (PAC), Tema.
The Nigerian, 29-year-old Obina Ukah, was captured during the reviewing of his application by Immigration Officers and was in this way alluded to the Tema Regional Command for additional examinations.
This was made known to the Ghana News Agency (GNA) on Friday in an official statement marked by DSI Mercy Budu, Regional Public Affairs Officer, Tema Regional Command.
As indicated by the discharge, Mr. Ukah had entered Ghana illicitly through the Aflao outskirt and had been working at the Volta Hotel in Akosombo, for a half year as a designer without a legitimate work/living arrangement grant.
Mr. Ukah then chose to gain a Ghanaian identification and was helped by a 53-year-old Ghanaian national, whose name has been retained for security reasons. His Ghanaian associate was to help him procure a Ghanaian birth testament with bogus individual data at an expense of 200 Ghana cedis to help in the preparing of the identification.
The two suspects had been alluded to the Ghana Immigration Service (GIS) National Headquarters for additional examinations.
The GIS advised every single outside national in Ghana, particularly those from the ECOWAS sub-locale, to cease from endeavoring to obtain a Ghanaian visa by misrepresentation, which was a genuine offense under the laws of the nation.
