In the Eastern Region of Ghana, three foreign nationals suspected to be human smugglers have been arrested.
Reports say that the perpetrators rented an apartment in Trom, a suburb of the municipality of New Juaben South.
The suspects lured their victims from Burkina Faso, promising to secure them a well-paid job in Ghana, often via the internet.
In pursuit of better opportunities, the perpetrators arrive only to steal their identity papers and property.
A total of 20 victims, including three young women detained in the house of the suspects, were rescued during a police operation on Saturday, 9 January, 20 years ago.
A few days before that, a male survivor escaped and recounted his predicament through a French translator at a Koforidua Zongo to the Islamic leaders.
The police were eventually told of the capture of the three suspects which led to the arrest.
