The National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO) in the Central Region is screening 108 Ghanaians who have been deported from Benin.
The deportees, who are mainly fisherfolks, had their homes taken over by the West African nation for the construction of a harbour.
They are being taken through screening and registration before they are sent to their respective communities, NADMO officials have said.
Preliminary screening and registration figures reveal that the returnees are from mostly from Central Region, Takoradi in the Western Region and Kumasi in the Ashanti Region.
NADMO officials have hinted more returnees are expected in the coming weeks.
Regional Public Relations Officer of NADMO, Mr Eric Arthur, told 3news that they have been able to identify some of the communities they originally come from.
“So, what we’ve been able to do today is that we conveyed all of them from the Regional Police Commander to Esuohyia where they were registered.
“All of them were taken to their various communities,” Arthur added.
Asked if NADMO was expecting more deportees, Arthur responded saying they are expecting 336 more people. “As we speak now, we don’t know when they are actually coming,” he said.
“To be honest, we received the information last night about 2 am so we had to respond to it.”
