Chairman/CEO Nigerian People in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), Abike Dabiri-Erewa, has reacted to the alleged attack on Nigerian traders in Ghana.

There were reported cases of clashes between Ghanaian and Nigerian traders on Monday which resulted in the arrest of six while others sustained injuries.

Dabiri-Erewa in a statement by the Commission Head of Media and Public Relations, Abdur-Rahman Balogun, said the reported cases of attacks on Nigerian shops and traders by Ghanaians were quite unfortunate.

She described the recent attacks as uncalled for even as she appealed for calm from both sides.
