The Nigerian businessman, who was obviously furious, challenged the policemen to provide evidence of non-payment of tax, by him. He lambasted the Ghanian security personnel for treating Nigerians in their country so harshly, and cruelly.

While videoing the incident himself, the Nigerian trader, provided evidence of his tax payments and further picketed the policemen for treating their fellow Africans so unfairly.

“I have been doing business in Ghana since 2007, and I have not defaulted in paying my tax. I have the necessary papers to back up my claim. You guys are only closing our shops because of the $1 million you ask us to pay. Where do you want us to get the $1 million?” he asked?

The security personnel were thereafter seen closing the Nigerian businessman’s shop with a padlock.
