In a new report, a Nigerian man said to have been acting in an abnormal way while roaming the streets of Ghana, taken off the streets and handed over to Nigerians in the country.
A video that’s begun serving rounds on the internet shows the young man believed to be acting under the influence of drugs, handcuffed while sitting in the back of a red car.
A couple of Nigerians can be heard suggesting taking him to a psychiatric hospital. The young man’s international passport revealed that his name is Okolie Christian Daniel Nonso.
The Nigerians tried to get information from him to help him, but the response he was giving were erratic and lacked coherence.
“Okay, send me to court, I want to go and bring my father back to life. They killed him without my permission,” Nonso is heard saying.
The Nigerians who he was handed over to then said: “This is one of our brothers. They brought him here in the Palace this afternoon. The guy is going mad.
“Some great, wonderful Ghanaians met him on the street and they picked him up, and one of our police brothers rescued him and brought him here into the Palace, so that he will be taken care of.”
But Nonso is heard saying they’re lying.
“Stop lying, stop lying sir. They want to kill me, by 9 o’clock. USA, help me, I’m a child of Israel,” he said.
The men with him then said they were getting ready to take him to a psychiatric hospital. They showed the bag of weed they found in his possession and the young man admitted he smokes “weed and cocaine.”
“Anywhere you take me, if it’s grave, put enough igbo let me die with it,” the young man added.
The video was shared to Nigerian online platforms so that the young man can get the necessary support. Some netizens have suggested that the man is pretending to avoid jail.
