They were charged for engaging in offences ranging from trafficking of banned substances, assault, vehicle theft, burglary, fraud, domestic violence and immigration-related issues, the GIS said in a statement on Monday, 19 August 2019.

The GIS said the deportees were taken through a vigorous screening exercise to ascertain whether or not they were Ghanaians.

The statement said: “The KIA Regional Command of the Ghana Immigration Service, has received forty (40) deportees from the United States of America on board a chartered flight, Omni Air International Boeing 777-OAE328.

“Thirty-eight (38) of them arrived on a travel certificate issued by the Ghana Mission in Washington DC, USA, while two (2) of them [arrived] on Ghana passports.”

The statement added: “The deportees are coming from the various regions in the country with sixteen (16) of them from Greater Accra, ten (10) from the Ashanti Region, two (2) from Bono, two (2) from Western, two (2) from Central; 3, Eastern and 3 from the Volta Region.
