KanyiDaily had reported how some armed men invaded the commission in Accra, demolishing some portion of the staff quarters under construction.
The Nigerian Government had condemned the attack and demanded that those responsible for the incident must be brought to book immediately.
Reacting in a statement on Sunday, Ghana’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Intervention said the incident was being investigated with the aim of bringing perpetrators to book.
“It has come to the attention of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration that unidentified individuals had allegedly breached the premises of the Nigeria High Commission in Accra and demolished its property under construction around 10:30pm on Friday, 19th June, 2020.
“The ministry views with concern this development which is a breach of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations (VCDR. 1961).
“Accordingly, investigations are ongoing to unravel the facts of the matter and bring the perpetrators to book. Meanwhile, the Government of Ghana has beefed up security at the said facility and the situation is under control.
“Whilst expressing regrets over the incident, the ministry wishes to reassure the diplomatic community in Ghana and the Nigeria High Commission in particular, that Ghana remains a Iaw-abiding country that upholds the principle of the rule of law, where due process is followed at all times.
“The Government will, therefore, not relent on its primary obligation to guarantee the safety of members of the Diplomatic Corps in Ghana.”
The development comes five months after Olusola Ojemane Orevba, Nigerian Ambassador to Democratic Republic of Congo was evicted from his residence in Kinshasa.
