Their arrest came on Thursday, March 31, 2016 in the morning when they were moving from Assin Nyankomase to Assin Fosu in the Central Region.

Assin Fosu District Police Commander, DSP Samuel Lawson, said the foreigners are currently in the custody of the Ghana Immigration Service (GIS) while investigations continue.

DSP Samuel Lawson also said, the thirteen Pakistani nationals were arrested after a tip-off around 9:00am Thursday, but the police could not readily determine if they were in the country legally or not, but called on Ghana Immigration Service to check whether their status in the country.

Preliminary investigations indicate that there is no cause for alarm.

It however emerged that Ghana Immigration Service’s investigations confirm the claim by the Pakistanis that they are on a mission to preach Islam to communities across the country.

The Pakistani nationals have since been transferred to the Cape Coast Regional headquarters of the Immigration Service for further investigations.

The Republic of Ghana has been on high security alert after attacks on its neighbours, Burkina Faso and Cote DÍvoire as well as other West African countries.
