The Federal Government of Nigeria has condemned the demolition of the building, housing staff of the Nigerian High Commission on its diplomatic premises in Accra, Ghana.
According to a report, the building was demolished around 2:00 am on Saturday morning by an unknown person who claimed that the property was built on his land.
Nigeria’s Foreign Affairs Minister, Geoffrey Onyeama on behalf of the federal government, through his official Twitter handle condemned the act and demanded urgent action on the perpetrators.
He said, “We strongly condemn two outrageous criminal attacks in Accra, #Ghana, on a residential building in our diplomatic premises by unknown persons in which a bulldozer was used to demolish the building.”
“We are engaging the Ghanaian Government and demand urgent action to find the perpetrators and provide adequate protection for Nigerians and their property in Ghana. #StayHomeSaveLives #COVID19,” Onyeama stressed.
This is not the first time properties owned by Nigeria and Nigerians will be destroyed by Ghanaians, who see Nigerians as a threat to them in their country.
