The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration says its attention has been drawn to an incident in which some unidentified individuals allegedly breached the premises of the Nigerian High Commission in Accra and demolished its property under construction last Friday.

Meanwhile, government says it has beefed up security at the facility, and the situation is under control. The statement adds that while expressing regret over the incident, the Ministry reassures the Diplomatic Community in Ghana, and the Nigerian High Commission in particular that Ghana remains a law-abiding country which upholds the principles of the rule of law, where due process is followed at all times.
