The Ghanaian government has eaten a humble pie following the attack on the Nigerian high commission in Accra which saw some apartments of the embassy pulled down by aggrieved protesters.
Speaking with his Nigerian counterpart President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday, June 23, President Nana Akufo-Addo said the country deeply regretted the action capable of damaging sisterhood bond between the two countries.
Akufo-Addo described the development as unfortunate and regrettable and assured that those behind the demolition will be duly prosecuted.
The Ghanian president also stated that investigations are ongoing to unravel the cause of the incidents.
“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," Garba Shehu, senior media aide to the president made this known in a statement.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that following an attack on Nigerian high commission in Ghana on Sunday, June 21, leaving some apartments of the embassy in ruins, Nigerians have called on the federal government to close down the commission.
It would be recalled that in what came as a shock, a Ghanian businessman allegedly supervised the demolition of some apartments in the Nigerian high commission situated in Accra.
The aggrieved businessman, who invaded the embassy with armed men, had accused the commission of encroaching on his land.
The Nigerian government has since condemned the attacks on the building with Geoffery Onyeama, minister of foreign affairs, describing the incident as "outrageous and criminal."
Meanwhile, many Nigerians believed that the condemnation is not enough as Ghana must be made to face the reality of its citizens' action.
