Ghana arrests and humiliates over 500 Nigerians

Some Nigerians were seen in a viral video pleading for mercy after being arrested and kept at the border area.

Speaking in the Igbo language, one of the Nigerians was heard complaining in the video.

He said, “It’s a very terrible thing. Our situation here is very very terrible. We have talked and talked, yet they refused. They used security and Immigration to detain us here. Which is very very bad.

“The only thing they did was to give us a canopy to shade us from the sun. No food. They have starved us since then.

“Since Tuesday they brought us to Aflao, they have not given us food till today that is Saturday.

“We have been calling. Nothing to do. No one is helping us. Whatever help you people can give us, please, help us.”

While reacting to this video, the Chairman of Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), Abike Dabiri-Erewa, said the Nigerian mission in Ghana is already working on it.

She said that some Nigerians who recently escaped from a jailbreak in the country have been illegally migrating to Ghana.

“The Nigerian mission in Ghana is dealing with the matter. Some prisoners who allegedly escaped from a jail break here in Nigeria have been allegedly found escaping to Ghana during this period through illegal means. The Nigerian mission has been engaging the Ghanaian authorities,” she tweeted.
