JoyNews’ ‘Smugglers Paradise’ exposes customs officers aiding smugglers to loot over ¢300m at borders [Video]
These items are dumped at Tamale and Sampa markets in the Northern and Bono regions, respectively.
It’s a multibillion-dollar smuggling operation including a bribery-mastermind gang and affected and complacent customs agents.
If the smugglers bring in 5,000 metric tonnes of cooking oil, the state is anticipated to lose $300 million in taxes each year.
‘Smugglers Paradise’ will reveal the smugglers, dealers, and perilous illegal routes they take, as well as the customs authorities involved.
