The Ghana Immigration Service has announced that the about 64 jail breakers suspected to be Boko Haram inmates are likely to enter Ghana through both approved and unapproved routes.
A statement copied to all Regional and Sector Commanders of the Immigration Service indicated that “considering current migration trends of Nigeria within the sub region, it is likely most of the escapees will enter Ghana through both approved and unapproved routes”.
The statement thus directed all commanders to institute stringent measures at all points of entry and intensify patrols to deter and intercept all escapees who will attempt to enter the country.
Nigeria recorded another jail break at the Kuje Maximum Security Prison in Abuja on Wednesday night 6th July, 2022.
Reports say about 443 out of the 879 inmates that escaped as a result of the break are still on the run.
“It is believed that the Jihadist group Boko Haram is behind the attack which saw the use of high end explosives and guns, that freed all 64 Boko Haram linked inmates at the Prison and are among escapees who are still on the run”, the statement stressed.
