However, the Nigerian business merchant, while fiercely challenging the security men’s action, claimed that he has paid both his company tax and all other necessary fees, even before registering his business.
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.

KanyiDaily also recalls that angry members of the Ghana Union of Traders Association (GUTA) had shut down shops owned by Nigerians in major markets in Kumasi, the Ashanti Region capital.
That was the third time this year GUTA members would shut Nigerian-owned shops, claiming it was waging a war on foreigners doing retail business in the country.
