Four Ghanaian gold smugglers arrested at Aflao border

Four Ghanaians with Malian origins, were on Tuesday dawn busted at the Aflao border in an attempt to smuggle gold to neighboring Togo.

The 15kg gold with an estimated street value of about $1 million was being transported to Togo by road in an attempt to evade tax and also go through customs procedures.

The dawn operation, according to a source at Aflao, was undertaken by a crack unit at the National Security.

“They have been monitoring these people for sometime new and it seems modus operandi of this syndicate, is to use the beaches before getting to the Aflao. border”, the source said.

What is intriguing, according to the source is that “land borders remain closed so why are people still able to move to and fro freely?”

Gold smuggling syndicates embark on such illicit operations in order to also avoid repatriation of a percentage of proceeds of sales of gold abroad thereby denying the State billions of dollars annually. The four suspects, yet to be named are said to be in the custody of the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) to assist in investigations.
