In its bid to improve upon its tactics in combating smuggling and human trafficking at the borders, the Ghana Immigration Service, in partnership with the Thematic Programme on Migration and Asylum, has trained 61 Immigration Officers on specific combat areas.
The programme on migration and asylum is European Union sponsored and aims at combating the menace of smuggling of migrants and other forms of irregular migration.
The six-day training programme took place in Bolgatanga, in Upper East Region.
Most the officers who benefited from the programme were those at the borders in the Upper East, Upper West and Northern regions, including an international trainee from Burkina Faso.
