The Public Relations Officer of the Ghana Immigration Service has revealed that the state security agency borrows weapons to embark on its operations ABCNews can report.

The PRO of The state-owned security agency in charge of protecting the country’s borders claims his outfit finds it difficult dealing with armed criminals because they do not have weapons to combat crime at the borders.

Speaking to Adam Bonaa on Starr FM, the Public relations officer, Superintendent Michael Amoako-Atta  said “We don’t have them, we have a few that we have borrowed from other agencies, yes, yes you see although Act 901 gives effect for us to use weapons, it looks like the procurement process is a bit cumbersome, but then again the indication that we are having from government is that the procurement process has come to an end and hopefully by September the weapons would be in for use by our officials.”

The P.R.O of the immigration service lamented further about the challenges officials of the security agency grapple with on a daily basis.

“If you go to the northern part, especially with the border with Burkina Faso you have our men there who are patrolling and manning these boarders unapproved and approved with their bare hands. Initially, until we have to borrow some weapons for them to use,” he said in the interview monitored by ABC News.
