The hopes of three Nigerian men of reaching Europe were dashed when the ship they boarded brought them only as far as Ghana’s
port of Tema. The trio are Kelvin Popoola, 26, Isaac Daniels, 32 and 28-year-old Nuta, they have been arrested by the authorities in Ghana while their case is processed. Investigations
reveal that the three men sneaked into an MV Unity vessel from Apapa Port in Nigeria which was apparently heading to Ghana. One of the arrested stowaways, Isaac Daniels has been
identified as a serial stowaway who was arrested in 2019 for similar offenses. He was deported to Nigeria with some $600 (N217,500) package, officials told the media.
Stoaways disembarking at the Tema port has become a constant event with Tunisians and even Ghanains being arrested at the Tema port in the recent past.
