Ho, July 23, GNA – The
Volta Regional branch of the Ghana Immigration Service has rescued 61 girls in
the second quarter of the year, who were being trafficked through borders in
the Region enroute to the Middle East.

Mr Isaac Owusu Mensah,
the Deputy Commander of Immigration (DCI), in charge of the Volta Region, said
the “innocent girls” wanted to use the borders of Honuta, Aflao and
Akanu to travel to neighboring countries, before heading to the Middle East and
South Africa to work as house helps.

He said this when the
Volta Regional Minister, Dr Archibald Yao Letsa, paid a working visit to
security agencies in the Region.

Mr Mensah said borders
in the Volta Region were now the routes for human traffickers following
restrictions at the Kotoka International Airport and called for logistical
support to ‘tighten’ those borders.

Dr Letsa commended
security personnel for their “dedicated” service to the country and
hinted of government’s plans to build affordable houses for workers and to
refurbish old ones.

All the security
services asked for decent staff accommodation.
