Credible information reaching The Chronicle has revealed that top officials of the Ghana Immigration Service (GIS) were summoned by the Ministry of Interior over revelation by The Chronicle that travel details of passengers using Kotoka International Airport were being abused by some staff of the GIS.

According to a source at the ministry, the senior officials of the GIS were questioned as to why they sat and allowed the security breach to go on

They were also tasked by the parent ministry to ensure that Isaac Dzihlornu, a GIS officer stationed at the KIA, who is at the centre of the obvious security breach, was brought to book.

In his attempt to win a beautiful lady he was pursuing, Dzihlornu threw caution to the wind and went into the national data base to copy the travel details of the lady and handed it over to her.

Through this dubious tactic, Dzihlornu was able to win over the lady, only to turn round later to swindle her. The lady at the centre of the dispute, whose identity is being withheld for security reasons, was traveling abroad when she encountered Dzihlornu at the departure hall of the KIA.

According to her, when she handed over her passport to Dzihlornu for the usual examination, the swindler quickly spoke to her in her native language. The lady also responded and after a brief conviviality, her passport was stamped and handed over to her by Dzihlornu.

What the lady did not read on the face of Dzihlornu was that he had already hatched a plot to swindle her, using love as a subterfuge and he executed his agenda with precision.

Having come into contact with the name of the lady, Dzihlornu then went to the database of travelers using the airport and managed to retrieve all the information on the lady, including her telephone numbers.

Knowing the day the lady would return to the country, the GIS worker started bombarding her with calls, which eventually led to a love affair developing between the two.

In her narration as to how she met the officer, she said: “I once had a call and the caller said he (Dzihlornu) is an immigration officer I once met on duty at the Kotoka International Airport.

“After normal exchange of greetings, I asked him how he managed to get my number. He said we (GIS) have all the details of travelers”.

Madam Kugblenu (not real name) added: ‘Dzihlornu then met me one day and handed to me the details of my travelling – where I stay and my house address”.

The victim said she got a bit apprehensive but kept it in her mind. Interestingly, Dzihlornu used the opportunity to get closer to Madam Kugblenu, portraying himself as a senior immigration officer who was interested in marrying her.

“From the interactions with me, what he told me indicated that he has been helping in facilitating prohibited trades at the airport and his focus at the airport was to make money and check on the records of women he perceived to have money and swindle them,” Madam Kugblenu stated.

According to her, in the course of the supposed courtship, Isaac Dzihlornu drove all the way to her village at Akpafu in the Volta Region to see her mother, without first informing her.
