“Our headache is that the Guinean authorities are saying they will not agree for us to return them,” he added.

Also, two Burkinabes remain in isolation in Ghana; as their home country threaten to return Ghanaians who are critically ill in their country and receiving treatment.

Furthermore, Mr. Saeed said the Foreign Affairs Ministry is being careful with the matter to prevent a diplomatic chaos.
