Ghanaian President Nana Akufo-Ado has apologised to Nigeria over the demolition of a building on the premises of the Nigerian High Commission in Accra, Ghana.
A statement by the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari, Mallam Garba Shehu, said some suspects had been arrested in connection with the incident.
The statement reads: “President Nana Akufo-Addo of Ghana, on 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 had 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.”
Some armed men reportedly invaded the building in the Ghanaian capital, on Friday night, destroying some apartments under construction.
The demolished building was recently acquired by the Nigerian embassy.
