Officers of the Gambia Immigration Department Wednesday night intercepted at least 80 Guinean nationals who were brought to the country by smugglers bound for the Canary Island.

The migrants include 8 women.

They were intercepted at two separate residences in Kololi where they were lodged by their agent as they awaited transportation.

The officers clamped down on them following a tipoff.

The would-be migrants are currently being held at the GID training Centre in Tanji as investigations continue.

A principal suspect who is also a Guinean has been arrested.
