Nigerians under attack over death of Ghanaian

Nigerians living in an area in Ghana are reportedly under attack by Ghanaians following the death of one of their own.

Ghanaians allegedly attack Nigerians

According to a report by Punch, a crisis had erupted after some Ghanaians led reprisal attacks against Nigerians living in Ghana when the police arrested a 48-year-old Thompson Peter, who insisted he killed the Ghanaian man in self defence during the fight.

Already, the reprisal attack has reportedly led to the death of five persons in Ghana.

A Facebook user, Ifeanyi Chukwuemeka, wrote that the crisis started after Thompson allegedly stabbed 27-year-old Misbau Amadu in the head with a knife after a confrontation at his residence at about 10:00pm on Thursday.

He wrote: “The victim was rushed to the Mary Lucy Hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival by the doctors.

“Inspector Kwabena Danso, Deputy Accra Regional Police Public Relations Officer (PRO), said a week ago, Thompson Peter lodged a complaint at the Sowutoum Police Station that Misbau Amadu had broken into his apartment and stolen some items.

“After taking the statement of Thompson, the PRO said the police proceeded to the residence of Misbau Amadu with the intent of inviting him to the station to help investigate the claim but he was not available.

“Thompson said at about 9:00 pm last Thursday, Misbau came to his (Thomson’s) house, armed with a knife to attack him for reporting the case to the police. In the course of the fight, Thompson said he overpowered Misbau and stabbed him in self-defence.

“The matter is still under investigations, Inspector Kwabena Danso posited. Meanwhile, crisis has allegedly broken out in the area, with many Nigerians being attacked."
