Stowaway

Three Ghanaians who attempted to stowaway onboard a vessel, MV, Kota Lumba, have disembarked at the Tema Port.

The three, Emmanuel Agyei, 45 years, Akesse Francis Alan, 46 years, and Samuel Yalley, also 45 years, were nabbed mid-voyage in Namibian waters and were transferred to a sister vessel, Kota Salam at Walvis Bay anchorage in Namibia and repatriated to Ghana.

The Ghana News Agency gathered that the three embarked the vessel using a bamboo ladder at the blind side of the ship crew, in late September 2020.

The stowaways indicated that although they had no idea where the ship was heading to, they were hopeful it was sailing to a country which offered greener pastures.

They added that they had traveled to Tema in pursuit of a better life but they could not make ends meet, hence their decision to stowaway.

Meanwhile, Sheikh Labaran Salifu, Head of intelligence at the Port of Tema, has advised Ghanaians not to embark on highly dangerous adventures.

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
