According to eye witness reports, Armed men reportedly stormed the compound last week and destroyed buildings under construction.


Two people have been arrested over the incident. They have been charged with Unlawful Entry And Causing Unlawful Damage.
Ghana’s foreign ministry said it regretted the incident and guaranteed that an investigation would be conducted, adding that security had been “beefed up” at the facility.

“It beats my imagination how such a violent and noisy destruction could occur without our security agents picking up the signals to avert the damage,” Mr Mahama tweeted.
