Mystery group lock Nigerian shops in Ghana with padlocks
More than 30 shops owned by Nigerians have been locked by unidentified men in Ghana’s second largest city, Kumasi.
This follows a longstanding row with Ghanaian shopkeepers who accuse Nigerian traders of selling inferior products.
The Nigerian businesses at a vehicle spare-parts trading hub known as “Suame Magazine”, say that since last Thursday, unidentified men have been closing their shops with padlocks.
The police intervened, but their shops were forcibly closed again this week.
The police have assured Nigerian traders that their businesses will be protected.
