There was a standoff between 108 Ghanaians, Liberians and officials of the United States of America (USA) at the Kotoka International Airport  (KIA) after the Ghanaians and the Liberians had been deported from the US to Ghana yesterday. After the deportees had arrived at the KIA at 10 a.m. on a chartered flight, they refused to disembark and accused the US officials of manhandling them.

The individuals were deported on account of serving various jail terms for drug-related offences. Others were deported for staying illegally, over staying their permits and other crimes.Personnel of the Ghana Police Service, the Ghana Immigration Service (GIS), the National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO) and some officials of the Ghana Airport Company had a tough time before getting the deportees to disembark. Some of the deportees engaged in exchange of words with the officials who had come to welcome them, while others verbally abused the officials and called them names.

When they finally stepped out of the plane, some of them, suspected to be hardened criminals, were seen in handcuffs, while others carried their heavy jackets. When they were freed, some of them demanded money from the officials present to enable them to pay for their transportation back home.
