Operatives of the National Security’s ITF Unit, have rounded up a gold smuggling syndicate at the border town of Aflao.
They have been sending out large amounts of gold bars out of Ghana through the Aflao border, in what appeared to be a long-running illegal business.
The cartel, includes Ghanaians and foreigners from neighbouring countries in partnership with their Indian financiers, have been behind smuggling of Ghana’s precious mineral resources in huge volumes using Togo
The Herald’s information is that, they have some political and security backing in their illegal business, which is making Ghana lose millions of US dollars by way of revenue.
But on Wednesday, luck eluded some of them, when the National Security’s ITF Unit upon a tipoff, stormed the Aflao border town and arrested them while in the act, smuggling yet another 15 kilogrammes of gold out of the country.
