Embassy Demolition: We have identified perpetrators – Foreign Affairs Ministry


The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration says the perpetrators behind the demolition of the Nigerian High Commission’s property in Accra have been identified.

Madam Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration, in a statement copied to the Ghana News Agency clarified that the Nigerian High Commission’s Chancery/Residence had not been demolished, contrary to claims on social media.

“The building in question is nether the Chancery nor the Residence, but a property belonging to the Nigerian High Commission that was unfortunately pulled down by some now identified private individuals,” Madam Ayorkor Botchwey said.
