Revenue collection reduces at New Town border

Mr Anohomah said throughout last year over 13 vehicles could be loaded to Accra, Takoradi and Kumasi daily but this had come down to one vehicle to each of the three destinations.

He said the security officers in four groups were heavily armed and had mounted tents on the 25-kilometre road and collect 1,000 CFA from every non-Ivorian citizen at each point before allowing them to cross to Ghana.

Mr Anohomah said those unable to pay were made to return to where they were coming from and this had compelled most travelers to resort to using other routes to Ghana. — GNA
