According to the service, the 17 deportees who had stayed in German between three and 10 years arrived with 15 persons using Travel Certificates (TC) issued by Ghanaian Embassy in Berlin while the two others used their Ghanaian passports.
The deportees all males aged between 21 to 60 years were escorted by 67 Police officers, including paramedics.
