Police investigate Nigerian Professor; cautioned for breach of peace in Ghana
The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) has granted bail to the visiting Nigerian lecturer Prof Austin Nwagbara at the University of Education following the contents of a video that has gone viral on social media.
Prof Nwagbara was invited by the Police CID Tuesday and was cautioned on the offense of offensive conduct conducive to the breach of peace, a statement signed by the Head of Public Affairs of the Police CID, DSP Juliana Obeng said.
In the video, Prof Nwagbara told a group of Nigerians to take advantage of the media to reshape the reportage of Nigerians in Ghana.
“There is bad image for Nigeria; we can take it back through the press. We can reverse it. We have powerful Nigerian media stations, channels broadcast all over the world, there’s active online social media... Let them come here and run documentaries of the experiences of Nigerians and blast it all over the world. In three days Ghana would respond,” he said.

Meanwhile, the Nigerian High Commission in Ghana has accused the Ghanaian media of demonising its nationals through wide spread negative reportage.
The Commission has therefore advised the media and the public to be circumspect with their reports and commentary on alleged crimes committed by Nigerians living in Ghana.
