The Ghana Immigration Service has dispelled reports that the thirteen Pakistani nationals who were arrested in the Central region are terrorists.

Raymond Bahey, who speaks for the Ghana Immigration Service Training School in the Central Region told Joy News that investigations indicate that the foreigners are missionaries who are in Ghana to preach to the Muslim community.

He added that the thirteen have been transferred to the Cape Coast Regional headquarters of the Immigration Service for further investigations.

“Preliminary investigation indicates that they are missionaries. However, investigation is ongoing so the public shouldn’t panic. They are being forwarded to the regional command,” he noted.
