Hundreds of shops belonging to Nigerian traders in Ghana have been under lock and key since September 2019.

Few weeks back, Nigerian traders in Ghana had appealed to the federal government to evacuate them back to Nigeria, expressing their displeasure and insecurity of their wares and livelihoods in the country.

On Monday, November 30, the Ghanaian Authorities led by Security Agencies started another round of closure of shops belonging to Nigerian traders in Ghana.

The notice placed above the padlocks on each of the locked shops informed owners to come to their Ministry of Trade and Industry with evidence of payment of one million dollars.

“It is indeed a complete dent on the face of ECOWAS and a bold question, perhaps asking the Nigerian Government ‘What would you do?’ or ‘Do your worst!’” Mr. Ukaoha noted.
