Ms. Shirley Ayorkor, the minister for Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration visited the site on the 22nd. She said that investigations were still ongoing to establish the motive behind the demolitions. The wondered why there were no court orders before the demolitions. According to her: “This is so unfortunate. We haven’t seen any court order…This is most unacceptable and we condemn this action. I can assure you that we will continue to provide you with protection as you are a diplomatic entity and therefore we will not allow anything untoward to happen.
“The relations between our two countries are too strong even if there there is any kind of dispute, for it to end in something like this. This shouldn’t happen between Ghana and Nigeria.”
