Reports had it that some armed men attacked and demolished some arguments of the building constructed to house staff and visiting diplomats to the High Commission in Accra.
The government of both countries involved have condemned the attack as Ghanaian government has beefed-up security at the said facility and the situation is under control.
However Ghanaian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration had earlier in a statement expressed regrets over the incident while reassuring the Diplomatic community in Ghana and the Nigerian High Commission in particular that Ghana remains a law-abiding country.
The government will, therefore, not relent on its primary obligation to guarantee the safety of members of Diplomatic Corps in Ghana, the statement said.
