The House of Representatives is calling for an investigation into why Nigerian shops were locked up in Ghana by Ghanaian traders.
The incident occurred on Tuesday the 3rd of November and at least 600 Nigerian shops were affected.
Lawmakers at plenary on Wednesday urged the Federal Government to quickly attend to the matter to avoid future xenophobic attacks.
The matter was raised as a motion of urgent public importance by the House Committee Chairman on diaspora, Tolulope Akande-Sadipe.
The House also mandated the Committees on Diaspora Affairs, Foreign Affairs, and Treaties, Protocols, and Agreements to “consider and investigate the recent developments among traders in Ghana and ensure that another xenophobia attack on Nigerians is prevented.”
