Nigeria slams Ghana over 'harassment of its citizens'

Nigeria has criticised what it calls the "incessant harassment of its citizens in Ghana and the progressive acts of hostility towards the country by Ghanaian authorities".
The statement from Information Minister Lai Mohammed says Nigerians in Ghana are "being made... objects of ridicule".
He lists a number of issues including:
Mr Mohammed says the Nigerian government is "considering a number of options aimed at ameliorating the situation" but does not say what those are.
Earlier this week, Ghana’s Foreign Minister Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey summoned Nigeria's chargĂ© d’affaires to complain about comments attributed to her Nigerian counterpart.
Geoffrey Onyeama is alleged to have said that the crackdown on illegal foreign retail business in the country was for political gain.
In a series of tweets, she described the comment as "most unfortunate" and noted that the Ghanaian government was not targeting any particular nationality in this exercise.
Ghanaian law bars foreigners from engaging in the retail business, especially in market areas and local business owners are putting pressure on the authorities to enforce the law, reports the BBC's Thomas Naadi in Accra.
Diplomatic relations between the two countries have been strained in recent months following trade tensions and the demolition of the Nigerian diplomatic building.

Twelve more dead dolphins have been found on the coast of Mauritius, bringing the number found in the last few days to 39, the authorities say.
Environmental campaigners have said that the deaths were either caused by the oil spill from a Japanese-owned ship or by authorities sinking part of the vessel.
At a press conference on Friday, Fisheries Minister Sudheer Maudhoo said that there were some injuries on the bodies of the marine mammals but there was no evidence of oil found in their stomachs, reports the BBC's Yasine Mohabuth.
Autopsies are continuing and samples have been sent to a laboratory for further testing.
