- Nigerians in Ghana have vowed to assist the Ghana Police Service by identifying and reporting Nigerian criminals
- They explained that they wish to help maintain the good relations between Ghana and Nigeria
The Nigerian community in Ghana have offered to help the Ghana Police Service (GPS) to arrest all Nigerians who engage in criminal activities in Ghana.
They explained that they would readily hand over their compatriots who are named in criminal offences in the country.
In that regard, they expressed hope that the relations between the two countries would improve, so that crime is gradually minimised, if not halted.
Pulse.com.gh reports that a group of Nigerians have declared they wish to protect the relation between the countries, and as such, they would support the police in any way to apprehend any Nigerian engaged in untoward acts.
The Business and Project Advisor to the Nigerian Business Forum, Oloye Yemi, is leading the team to embark on the mission.
“We are here to give our support to the Ghana Police Service. We are not professionals like you. We are not police, but we can give you information. We can get the information within our communities and give it to you,” he said.
Yemi added that although not all Nigerians will be happy with their stance, they are bent on helping the police fish out their vagabond compatriots.
This comes after a spate of criminal cases in the country, which mostly involved Nigerian nationals.
Nigerian national Samuel Wilson Udoterg is currently in police grips in connection with the kidnapping of three teenage girls in Takoradi in the Western region.
Meanwhile, two other Nigerians have so far been arrested over the kidnapping of a high profile Lebanese national in Ghana – although the victim has since been rescued.
