SCARS™ Irony: Ghana Scammer Demolishes Nigerian Embassy!
In an incredibly bold move, a Ghana scammer claimed to own the property where the Nigerian Embassy stood – ignoring Diplomatic Sovereignty completely.
The Ghana president was forced to apologize to the government of Nigeria for embassy demolition!
As the song says “And isn’t it ironic, don’t you think?”
According to the BBC:
Mr Akufo-Addo has ordered an investigation, a statement from the Nigerian government said after his call with President Muhammadu Buhari.
Armed men reportedly stormed the compound last week and destroyed buildings under construction.
Two local Ghanaian people have been arrested over the incident.
They have been charged with Unlawful Entry And Causing Unlawful Damage.
A businessman who had previously claimed that he owned the land where the building was being put up had led the demolition operation, according to an article posted on the Nigerian High Commission website in Ghana.
“The man showed up last week with some fake papers to support his claim and began to knock down the fence surrounding the building,” the article quotes a source at the ministry of foreign affairs as saying.
Nigeria’s Foreign Affairs Minister Geoffrey Onyeama said a bulldozer was used during the 19 June incident which destroyed two residential buildings.
He called the demolition “outrageous and criminal” and urged Ghanaian authorities to protect Nigeria’s diplomatic buildings.
Nigerians living in Ghana held a demonstration on Monday to condemn the demolition.
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.
The country’s former President John Mahama, however, condemned the demolition and criticised his successor’s government.
“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.
As the largest economies in West Africa, Ghana and Nigeria’s diplomatic relationship is crucial to the region and trade is a key part of that relationship.
But recent incidents serve as a reminder that their diplomatic ties haven’t always been smooth. Last year disputes over the status of foreign traders led to the temporary closure of some Nigerian-owned shops. Another recent source of contention was Nigeria’s decision to close its border with Benin, which affected traders across the region, including Ghanaians.
Today both sides recognize the need for strong bilateral ties. Few expect to see the type of tensions witnessed in 1969-70 and 1983 when both sides expelled large numbers of the other’s citizens.
Unfortunately, though, Ghana is not following Nigeria’s lead in addressing scammers & cybercriminals. While Nigeria is arresting fraudsters as fast as it can confirm them, Ghana is doing nothing and willfully ignoring the problem within their borders. It is for this reason that SCARS is lobbying the U.S. government to substantially reduce Ghana’s foreign aid from the United States.

FAQ: How Do You Properly Report Scammers?
It is essential that law enforcement knows about scams & scammers, even though there is nothing (in most cases) that they can do.
Always report scams involving money lost or where you received money to:
- Local Police – ask them to take an “informational” police report – say you need it for your insurance
- U.S. State Police (if you live in the U.S.) – they will take the matter more seriously and provide you with more help than local police
- Your National Police or FBI « www.IC3.gov »
- The SCARS|CDN™ Cybercriminal Data Network – Worldwide Reporting Network on « www.Anyscam.com »
This helps your government understand the problem, and allows law enforcement to add scammers on watch lists worldwide.
