Police in the Northern Region of Ghana have arrested 13 Nigerian commercial sex workers after a Wednesday dawn swoop.
The suspects have been handed over to the Immigration Service.
The police operation forms part of a general action by the Tamale metropolis to clamp down on activities of commercial sex workers which the assembly says has become a menace.
This is the third time such an operation has been conducted in the area with many of the suspects repatriated after investigations.
The Northern Regional Commander of the Immigration Service, Mr. Edward Kofi Owusu told Citi News that the Service is currently investigating which routes the sex workers entered the country through. “Investigations are ongoing to establish their immigration status. We are very much interested in finding the trends the routs they used, the documents they used to enter the country, how they are living in the country and all that.”
