The day light robbery being perpetuated by Ghanaian immigration officers at the Kotoka International Airport (KIA) is gradually becoming a canker, despite the firm promise made by the authorities to investigate the issue.
The Ghana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) in a statement said the alleged acts are unethical and unprofessional and would, therefore, sanction any employer found guilty after the probe.
The statement added that the GCAA has directed the Ghana Airports Company Ltd to put measures in place to curb such practices.
However, an exclusive report available to www.Ghgossip.com made by disgruntled travellers reveals how the issue has gone from bad to worst as these indiscipline officers refused to allow fifteen passengers travel for refusing to pay bribe to them.
They consequently seized their passport and demanded that they either pay or miss their flights and unfortunately, the highly peeved travellers missed their flight upon several hours of demanding justice.
Our reliable informant adds that there’s this particular woman who is the head of the extortion team who always make sure first time travellers aka virgin passport holders are made to pay a whopping ₵190.00
Eventually, feeling frustrated 14 out of the 15 passengers parted away with ₵50.00 so they would not miss their flights the second time.
