 Ghana President Apologises Over Demolition Of Nigerian Mission

President Nana Akufo-Addo of Ghana has called President Muhammadu Buhari Over the demolition of the Nigerian High Commission in Accra.

In a telephone conversation on Tuesday, June 23, 2020, President Akufo-Addo expressed his sincere apology over the unfortunate incident that has sparked reactions from the Nigerian Government.

The Senior Special Assistant to the President, Mr Garba Shehu confirmed this in a statement issued after the call.

The Ghana leader assured President Buhari that he has directed a full investigation into the matter, assuring that justice will be served.

Meanwhile, some suspects linked to the demolition have been arrested and will be arraigned in Court.

It would be recalled that a businessman who claimed ownership of the land housing the Nigerian Mission reportedly moved with Security Personnel to demolish some portion of the Staff Quarters.

Although the demolition took place on Friday, June 19, 2020, the man was said to have shown up the previous week with some pieces of evidence to support his claim and began to knock down the fence surrounding the building.

A source at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs told Channels Television that the action of the man was not opposed, adding that the Nigerian High Commission petitioned the Ghanaian Government about it, but there was no response.
