We’re all not 419-ners, criminals – Nigerians in Ghana cry

The Nigerian community in Ghana has expressed reservations about the stereotyping they suffer in Ghana as a result of the misconduct and criminal behaviours of a few of them.

At a press conference over the weekend, the President of the All Nigerian Communities in Ghana, Mr Moses Owharo said Nigerians in Ghana are ready and willing to support the Ghanaian authorities to fight their colleagues who are into criminal activities.

The group noted that it has written to Ghana’s Inspector General of Police to that end and, thus, urged Ghanaians to stop seeing all Nigerians as criminals.

“Nigerians are law-abiding people but in a big society, Ghanaian people say: ‘There is no house where there is no Mensa’. You cannot say because there is a ‘Mensa’ in the house, then all the other names are Mensa,” Mr Owharo said.

He conceded that: “There are a few ones who are destroying our image”, and “we need to get hold of those people”, adding that: “If we can reform them, we will reform them; if we cannot reform them, we put them where they should be – that is in the prisons”.

Recently, the Takoradi Market Circle Court sentenced to 18 months in jail, a Nigerian by name Samuel Udoetuk-Wills, for escaping lawful custody. He is the main suspect in the kidnapping of three Ghanaian girls in Takoradi, the oil hub of the country.

The missing girls are 18-year-old Priscilla Mantebea Koranchie, last seen on 21 December 2018; 21-year-old Priscilla Blessing Bentum, last seen on 17 August 2018; and 18-year-old Ruth Love Quayson, last seen on 4 December 2018.

The police are still trying to rescuing the girls.
