Ghanaian Businessman demolishes Nigeria’s High Commission building in Ghana


A disgruntled Ghanaian business man has demolished part of the Nigeria High Commission building in Ghana.

A source privy to the information stated that the man showed up last week with some papers to support his claim and began to knock down the fence surrounding the building. The information revealed that the businessman had previously claimed ownership of the piece of land where the Nigerian High Commission’s staff quarters were erected.

In a strong condemnation, Nigeria’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Geoffery Onyeama said the Nigerian High Commission had petitioned the Ghanaian Government about it, but there was no response.

”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,” he said.

The building was being constructed to house staff and visiting diplomats to the High Commission.

Meanwhile a senior worker with the High Commission has complained about the lackluster attitude of the Ghanaian authorities in handling the situation.
