Mr Jackson in an interview on Accra-based Citi FM said "I would say roughly 100 have returned so far this year. More will be returning – it is a constant process. There will probably be a charter aircraft coming with some Ghanaians in the next few weeks. Almost every week we see a few leave voluntarily so it is a process that is ongoing."

He said "A few are in jail. Most of them are at liberty but they have been informed by the immigration service that they must leave the United States."
