Historian seeks Government apology for forced wartime conscription of West Africans

There has been news exposure for author and historian Dr Robert Peprah-Gyamfi, who has launched a petition seeking a formal apology from the British Government for the forced conscription of West Africans during World War Two.

Robert, a client of author PR agency, has created the petition to bring “historic restitution” following the forceful conscription of more than 50,000 West African men and the “shocking” treatment of 200,000 others.

Many were physically dragged from their homes in the former British colonies of Ghana, Nigeria, Sierra Leone and Gambia on the direct order of Her Majesty’s Government, he says.

Robert has set up a website, www.WestAfricaApology.com, with more information. The petition is now live on the Petition.Parliament website can be signed HERE.
