Internet fraudsters in Nigeria and Ghana are about to start having tough times as both countries collaborate to tackle their activities.
West African countries Nigeria and Ghana plan to go into partnership in the fight against cybercrimes across the two countries, Ghanaian High Commissioner to Nigeria, Alhaji Rashid Bawa, revealed.
During a courtesy visit to the Comptroller of Nigeria Immigration Service in Cross River State, Mr Felix Uche, Bawa noted that the collaboration of Nigeria and Ghana in this fight will lead to its reduction, especially among the young population, News Agency of Nigeria reports.
“As we speak, this matter is been discussed at the highest level. The Comptroller General of the Ghanaian Immigration Service and his counterpart in Nigeria had a fruitful discussion about this a month ago.
“Experts from Ghana and Nigeria will be meeting soon to come out with a road map to deal with some of these issues that are currently taking place.
“In the course of the discussion, it came out clearly that there are cartels that operate behind these cyber crimes and prostitution of our young ones.
“Ghana believes that with the collaboration, Nigerian Government and security services will help to unravel the root causes as the laws of each country will be applied to minimise crimes.”
