Sources at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs revealed that a businessman had claimed that the Nigerian High Commission’s staff quarters was being built on his land.
The man reportedly showed up last week with some pieces of evidence to support his claim that he is the real owner of the land.
After accusing the commission of encroaching on his land, the man was said to have visited the site in the company of armed men who demolition the fence surrounding the building.
According to the source, the action of the man was not opposed while the Nigerian High Commission petitioned the Ghanaian Government about it, but there was no response.
On Friday, June 20, 2020, the man returned to the premises of the staff quarters and this time, with a bulldozer and began to pull down the building.
In a bid to stop the demolition, officials contacted the police who reportedly showed up at the site when the building was almost pulled down.
Despite not making efforts to prevent the demolition, the Ghanaian police allegedly allowed the man to leave the scene without reprimand or questioning.
The Nigerian and Ghanaian authorities are yet to react to the issue which comes five months after Olusola Ojemane Orevba, Nigerian Ambassador to Democratic Republic of Congo was evicted from his residence in Kinshasa.
