The group said: “We were then made to pay 70 euros equivalent of N60,000 each, as fines, after which they decided to detain the cars for 48 hours. They are extortionists.

A group of Ghanaians who left many stunned as they embarked on a daring adventure by travelling from Accra to London by road have opened up about their journey so far. In a video sighted by News Planet International on the TikTok page of @peace104.3fm, a member of the group who identified himself as Teddy during an interview with Kwame Sefa Kayi said the reception they got at the Mauritania border was very hostile and nothing to write to home about.
Delving into details, he alleged that the group, upon arrival at the Rosso border, were detained for six hours. Afterwards, the immigration officers complained that two of their cars had tinted glasses and were made to remove the tint on them.
“We were then made to pay 70 euros equivalent of N60,000 each, as fines, after which they decided to detain the cars for 48 hours. They are extortionists,” he claimed.
Teddy added that aside from the bad experience that the group had at the Mauritania border, the journey gave them delightful memories. “Apart from the experience that we are talking about at the Mauritanian border, all other countries have been receptive and very nice.
Generally, it’s been a nice experience. Football is so amazing, everywhere we go, and we mention Ghana, they mention Abedi Pele, they mention Essien and Asamoah. In Senegal, we met Diouf at the hotel we stayed in, and he even invited us for lunch the next day, but unfortunately, we were busy with the cars.. Netizens who thronged the comment section of the video praised the group for the courageous move.
