harassment of Liberians especially in Lagos and other places. This
harassment borders on stereotyping and sometimes expression of collective guilt.“Just because the ‘index case’ came from Liberia, so ‘all Liberians in Nigeria have Ebola’.

That
is the message and people are being harassed,” “There are law-abiding
Liberians living here in Nigeria who have been harassed.
So I appeal for your indulgence as you frame the responses especially
on the radio talk shows. People have been making all kind of derogatory
remarks that have been brought to our attention,”
