A video circulating on social media shows some Nigerian nationals believed to be residing in Kasoa in the Central Region, attacking some Ghana Immigration (GI) officers in their vehicle.
In a viral video, the Nigerians are seen heckling the immigration officers who were in a pick-up vehicle with registration number GI 220.
Some of the attackers blocked the road using wood, pieces of blocks to ensure the immigration vehicle did not leave the scene.
The Immigration officers are said to have gone to check on the residence permit of the Nigerians.
The Immigration officers looked on helplessly in the video as they struggled to move their vehicle impeded by several objects placed in front of them by the Nigerian nationals.
Spokesperson of the Ghana Immigration Service, Superintendent Michael Amoako-Atta said the officers were just doing their check duties but the Nigerians tried to resist.
“They (the officers) were going on normal operation to check on foreign nationals who don’t have legal stay and they met these Nigerians who were trying to resist,” he told the Graphic Online.
