The report said that a businessman demolished the building, claiming the structure was built on his land.
It added that the man showed up last week with some pieces of evidence to support his claim and began to knock down the fence surrounding the building and returned to the scene on Friday last week with a bulldozer and began to pull down the building.
“The authorities in Nigeria and Ghana have condemned the incident,” the report said.
