ANLNews reports that the Federal Government has reacted to a viral online video showing about 500 Nigerians being humiliated in Ghana.

Some Nigerians have been seen in the trending video asking for help after being arrested and detained at a border area.

One of the Nigerians who narrated their ordeal in the video in Igbo Language said, “It’s a very terrible thing. Our situation here is very very terrible.

“We have talked and talked, yet they refused. They used security and Immigration to detain us here. Which is very very bad.

“The only thing they did was to give us a canopy to shade us from the sun. No food. They have starved us since then.

“Since Tuesday they brought us to Aflao, they have not given us food till today that is Saturday.

“We have been calling. Nothing to do. No one is helping us. Whatever help you people can give us, please, help us.”

The Chairman of Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), Abike Dabiri-Erewa, while reacting said, the Nigerian mission in Ghana is already on top of the matter.

Abike-Dabiri said some Nigerians who recently escaped from a jailbreak in the country have been illegally making their way to Ghana.

“The Nigerian mission in Ghana is dealing with the matter. Some prisoners who allegedly escaped from a jailbreak here in Nigeria have been allegedly found escaping to Ghana during this period through illegal means. The Nigerian mission has been engaging the Ghanaian authorities,” she tweeted.
