Ghana Deports 8 Nigerians Over Illegal Sea Activities- Photos

Eight Nigerian pirates have been deported by the Ghanaian authorities upon the directive of the Minister of the Interior. They were handed over to Niger­ian authorities by a team of officials represented by the Ghana Police Serv­ice and the Ghana Immigration Serv­ice to officials of the National Criminal Bureau/Lagos (Interpol/Lagos) at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Ikeja, Lagos, on Janu­ary 7, 2016 after an exhaustive legal process in Accra.  The suspects are Molih William, Molilh, Klinsman, David Jacob, Amos Ebiyaibo, Aki Peggy John Picolo, Ayetimili Oyinle and Pinano Saniyu.

The suspects had earlier made appearances before an Accra Magis­trate Court 3, Adjabeng. The arrest of the pirates followed a complaint lodged by the Nigerian owner of a vessel, Sunday Nakase who said the men had stolen the ves­sel – MT Mariam – together with its crude oil contents and directed the crew to steer to an undisclosed desti­nation. They were arrested by personnel of the Ghana Navy and handed over to the police. A search revealed three AK 47s, IG3 rifle, a pump-action gun and 256 rounds of ammunition. Other items found on board the vessel were tablets, monies, walkie talkies, speed boats and two Yamaha outboard motorseight-nigerians-deported-from-ghana
