The Nigerian Federal Government has summoned the Chargè d’ Affaires of the High Commission of Ghana to Nigeria, Ms Iva Denoo, over the demolition of parts of the Nigerian embassy in Ghana.

Some armed men invaded the Nigerian high commission in Accra, Ghana, on Friday, destroying some apartments under construction.The affected buildings were reportedly being constructed to house staff and visitors. A Ghanaian businessman had accused the commission of encroaching on his land.

But the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, made this known on Monday.

The minister noted that Nigeria had asked the ambassador to give an “urgent explanation” on the recent attacks on apartments in the country’s High Commission in Accra.

He tweeted, “Summoned the Chargè d’ Affaires of the High Commission of #Ghana to Nigeria, Ms Iva Denoo to demand urgent explanation on the recent attacks on a residential building in our diplomatic premises and reinforcement of security around diplomatic premises and staff.”

The building was being constructed to house staff and visiting diplomats to the High Commission.
