Ghana’s President Nana Akufo-Addo has apologised to Nigeria for the demolition of a building at its High Commission in the capital, Accra, the Nigerian presidency said

The Ghanaian leader told President Muhammadu Buhari in a telephone call that a full investigation into the incident would be undertaken, a statement on Tuesday said.

Some suspects had been arrested and would be arraigned in court, it added.

Armed men reportedly stormed the High Commission in the early hours of Saturday and supervised as bulldozers demolished a newly constructed building.

The building was intended to serve as residence for staff and visiting diplomats.
