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.

In a statement, the Ministry said it views with concern the development which is a breach of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations. It notes that investigations are on going to unravel the facts of the matter and bring the perpetrators to book.

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.

It further stated that government will not relent on its primary obligation to guarantee the safety of members of the Diplomatic Corps.
