The Ghanaian government has promised to rebuild the demolished part of the Nigerian High Commission building.
It had earlier been reported that some armed men had invaded the consulate last week and demolished the building which was still under construction and meant for Nigerian High Commission staff.
Ghana’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration Shirley Ayokor Botchewey, in an interview, said the demolished building will be restored to its original state.
She further revealed that Nigeria paid for the land 20 years ago even though the High Commission could not produce the lease, land title certificate and building permit of the land.
She disclosed that a committee consisting of officials of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ghana Police Service, National Security, and the Lands Commission had been constituted to investigate the unlawful demolition of the building.
Botchewey stated, that the government of Ghana would actively engage the Nigeria government at the highest level, to address the impasse and help calm tensions in both countries.
