Video of Medeama's search in US sparks mixed reactions
The video triggered mixed reactions from Ghanaians.
It’s offensive! The real criminals are probably bringing in bs through the wide-open boarders. Who’s sniffing them? Absolute rubbish.
We act like we’ve never seen them before when they’re in our country, crazy how they treat us…y’all think they will do this to France or Germany players?
America is a target...this is for security purposes...what if u are sitting in a stadium with bombs on board, so u guys can talk all ur foolish talk here..when u guys explode then u come back here
They do this sometimes to enter the stadiums as a patron. Please be reasonable. But nevertheless, it’s still bad form since they’ve already been checked at customs prior to arriving to play
If you are not American they don’t value you to be a human being
