Legal practitioner and the founder of Danquah Institute Gabby Asare Otchere Darko has expressed displeasure over how Nigerians living in Ghana are being labelled as criminals.

He stated that Nigerians are almost half of West Africans so its likely to have a large number of both good and bad Nigerians on our continent.

Gabby Otchere also asked Ghanaians to stop the anti-Nigerian stereotyping and stop tagging them as criminals.

He made this assertion in a Facebook post asking Ghanaians to stop criminalising Nigerians.

“Imagine living in Europe, and waking up almost daily to headlines such as “Another Ghanaian Arrested”. That is how being a Nigerian in Ghana feels. Some of us have been saying this for years but with no impact. Stop the anti-Nigerian stereotyping! We keep reinforcing an unfortunate image that Nigerians are criminals. Even where a gang of 4 Ghanaians and 1 Nigerian robs a bank, we are told the Nigerian either “subcontracted” or “recruited” the Ghanaians. Indeed, almost half of West Africans are Nigerians, so Nigerians are bound to have the highest number of both good and bad people in our region, on our continent.#StopCriminalisingNaija”

This comes in the wake of recent kidnapping in the country where several Nigerians are believed to be involved.

Since August last year, Nigerians have been linked to five major kidnapping cases in the country.

Recent among them is the kidnap of two Canadian Nationals who were rescued last week in the Ashanti Region by the National Security.

It was reported that 8 people were arrested in connection to the kidnap and out of the 8 three are Nigerians and 5 are Ghanaians.
