Kumasi: Nigerian traders in Suame storms police station for protection

By Kweku Antwi Jnr

Nigerian Spare Parts Dealers at Suame Magazine in Kumasi have besieged the Suame Police Station to demand security protection to enable them carry out their trading activities.

The Nigerian Spare Parts Dealers closed their shops and stormed the Police Station due to an incessant attack on them at Suame Magazine which is hampering their trading activities.

The traders allege that some of their members are being assaulted by members of the Ghana Union of Traders Association (GUTA) who want them out of business.

They therefore gathered at the Suame Police Station for protection because if they go back, they [GUTA] would attack them.

The Chairman of the Nigerian Union Traders Association of Ghana, Chief Obiora Kizito, in an interview with PrimeNewsGhana at the Suame Police Station said “until they give us protection, we shall not go…if the government did not give us the protection; we will wait until our High Commissioner comes because as we stand here, our High Commissioner is aware”.
