Ghanaian President, Nana Akufo-Addo, had spoken with President Muhammadu Buhari to apologize in respect of the demolition of parts of the Nigerian High Commission building in Accra.

This was revealed in a tweet on Tuesday, by Garba Shehu, Senior Special Adviser to President Buhari on media and publicity. In his tweet, Mr Shehu said that Ghana’s President had apologized for the unfortunate incident and had ordered an investigation into the demolition.

The tweet read; “President Nana Akufo-Addo of Ghana Tuesday spoke with President Muhammadu Buhari, expressing his sincere apology for demolition of a building on the premises of Nigerian High Commission in Accra, Ghana.”

“In a telephone call, the Ghanaian leader told President Buhari that he has directed full investigation into the incident.

“Earlier in the day, it further emerged that some suspects had been arrested, and will be arraigned in court.”

However, according to recent reports on dailypostng, it was gathered that a Ghanaian businessman said the Nigerian High Commission’s staff quarters was being built on his land. But Ghana claimed that unknown persons carried out the act.

The Ghanaian Government on Sunday released a press statement through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and promised to punish those involved in the demolition of the Nigerian High Commission in Accra.
