Video: Angry Ghanaians Ransack Shops Owned By Nigerians At Suame
Two Nigerian-owned shops were ransacked by some angry Ghanaian youths in the early hours of Wednesday at Suame Magazine in the Ashanti Region.
The rampaging locals burnt lorry tyres and tied red bands as they moved violently to stop the Nigerians from opening their shops.
The vandalisation of the shops according to the angry youths were to register their displeasure against a decision by the Ghana Union Traders Association (GUTA) to reopen closed Nigerian retail shops.
In a video sighted by thepublisheronline.com, the angry youths who wore red bands and attires lit car tyres as part of their protest and destroyed some items in the process.
Armed police officers were later deployed to maintain law and order at the venue.
Meanwhile Minister of Information, Mr Kojo Oppong Nkrumah following the incident has condemned the attack describing it as ‘lawless’ and ‘needless’.
According to him, “If someone has violated the law, for instance, you work without a fire licence or permit, then the law will deal with you”.
