The Ministry of the Interior has taken note of media reportage claiming that an Immigration Officer who has been arraigned before the Koforidua Circuit Court ‘B’ for alleged involvement in an armed robbery at Akyem Akanteng, Lower West Akim Municipality of the Eastern Region stations at Ministry of the Interior.

The Ministry of the Interior wishes to inform the general public that the Immigration Officer in the media reportage is not stationed at the Ministry of the Interior as purported and as such the public should treat that reportage as false information.

The Ministry therefore, disassociates itself from the Officer and will conduct investigation to unravel the fact of the matter.

The Ministry of the Interior remains committed and will continue to ensure peace, security, law and order in the country for the benefit of the people living in the country.
