So many people are now in dilemma whether there is a return of xenophobic attacks in our neighbor country Ghana as there are some acts that is somehow related to xenophobic attacks on foreigners.
Ghanaians in opera square in Accra on tuesday locked up shops belonging to foreign nationals involved in retail business and most of the shops are believed to belong to Nigerians. This is coming some weeks after such similar incident in Kumasi where some shops belonging to foreigners were locked up too. But the Ghanaian traders in thier defense said they are not aiming at any attack on any foreigner, rather that the activities of the foreign nationals contravene section 27 of the Ghana investment promotion center (GIPC) act 865. They said that they have waited for the police to do thier job and catch the violators but since the police aren't doing their job, they have decided to take the law into thier own hands which prompted to them locking the shops.
