Thirteen Pakistani nationals are in the grips of the Central regional police of Ghana over suspicion that they are in the West African country for extremist activities.
According to police sources, the 13 claim to be Ahmadiyya sect missionaries who have been in Ghana over the last six months preaching in the villages.
The Assin Fosu police said the group was nabbed Thursday on their way from Assin Nyankomase to Assin Fosu.
They are currently in the custody of the Ghana Immigration Service being investigated, the Assin Fosu District Police Commander, DSP Samuel Lawson told the media.
The Ghana Immigration Service has allayed fears over the arrest since preliminary investigations show the 13 foreigners are on a mission to preach Islam.
