Immigration Service Moves To Remove Foreign Beggars Off Kumasi Streets

The Immigration Service in Ashanti Region is raising security concern about the activities of foreign beggars on Kumasi streets.
The Ashanti Regional Immigration Commander, ACI Charles Yaw Bediako, noted that some of them hold sharp objects and weapons to threaten commuters.
He disclosed that, “Others also hold cutlasses and hoes as if they are looking for jobs. These things are weapons and can be used to harm innocent Ghanaians.
“We think that those people should stay away from the streets,” ACI Bediako added.
He assured the public that his outfit was working to ensure the removal of foreign beggars from the streets.
“If you are dealing with foreigners, you are not just dealing with the individual. You are dealing with the country where they come from as well. There should be a holistic and strategic plan to be able to get them off the streets,” he said.
In recent times, many residents in the Region have raised concerns over the presence of foreigners begging for alms.
