Some unidentified armed men entered the Nigerian high commission in Accra, Ghana on Friday and destroyed some apartments that were under construction.

Available information reveals that the affected buildings were constructed to house staff and visitors but a Ghanaian businessman had complained that the commission trespassed as the building encroached his land,
It was also reported that the businessman had also visited the place with evidence to show that he is the rightful owner of the land and he returned on Friday accompanied by armed men who executed the demolition.
Officials stated that efforts were made to contact the police but nothing was done by the Ghanaian authorities to stop the demolition.
The Nigerian and Ghanaian authorities are yet to react to this and it will be recalled that it has been rumored that both countries are enmeshed in diplomatic row previously as the Ministry of foreign affairs in Ghana had denied reports that the Nigerian commission in Ghana had been evicted in Accra because of speculations that suggested so.
Ferdinand Nwonye, spokesperson of the ministry In a statement, had also disclosed that there was no “diplomatic row between Nigeria and the Republic of Ghana”.
