The federal government of Nigeria has condemned the demolition of its staff quarters in Ghana.
The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, in a series of tweets posted on his timeline on Sunday condemned the action and also demanded that urgent action be made by the Ghanaian government to find the perpetrators of the act.
He wrote: “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 @NigeriaGov @DigiCommsNG @GhanaMFA” Onyeama tweeted.
INSIDE REPORT had earlier reported that the building was brought down by a bulldozer late Friday, June 19, following claims by a businessman who said he owned the piece of land where the Nigerian High Commission’s staff quarters was erected.
