Seventeen of the 29 Nigerians arrested last month at Ho-Area 52 for their alleged complicity in cyber fraud activities have been deported by the Ghana Immigration Service (GIS).
This was disclosed to the Ghanaian Times by the Ho Municipal Police Commander, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Mr Anthony Danso, in Ho on Tuesday.
He said that soon after they were arrested, the Nigerians were handed over to the GIS for screening to determine their immigration status.
During the screening exercise by the GIS, he said, it emerged that the 17 were not of good immigration status.
Subsequently, they were escorted to the Aflao frontier by personnel of the GIS and then extradited, DSP Danso told the Ghanaian Times.
According to him, the others were identified as members of the Nigerian community in Ho and then released.
DSP Danso told the Ghanaian Times that the police were making vigorous efforts to trace the owners of the properties from which the suspects were arrested.
