An amateur footage was recently circulated on social media revealing that there might be a seemingly xenophobic attack in Ghana which is allegedly targeted at Nigerians. The Chairman, Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), Hon. Abike Dabiri-Erewa, said the attacks came when xenophobic attacks was becoming unpopular and thought such attacks had been put to the dustbin of history following interventions of Nigerian and Ghanaian leaders. Dabiri-Erewa, in a statement issued on Tuesday by the Commission’s Head of Media and Public Relations, Abdur-Rahman Balogun, stressed that the reported cases of attacks on Nigerian shops and traders by Ghanaians was quite unfortunate. According to her, “I hereby appeal for calm from both sides and implore the law enforcement agencies to protect the lives and properties especially that of Nigerians from being attacked pending the resolution of the matter.” Dabiri-Erewa appealed to Nigerians in Ghana, especially the shop owners, not to take laws into their hands by trying to retaliate but to remain calm and allow law enforcement agents to deal with the situation.
