A notice from Ghana Authorities, circulating since Wednesday evening bearing the name and logo of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration, advising its citizens to keep away from Abuja, the capital of Nigeria has been knocked and denied the government of Ghana.
That notice indicated that Nigeria asked some hotels to close, citing “the directive by local authorities to hotels operating in residential buildings to shut down”. The ministry allegedly said there was a “high danger of terrorism, criminality, inter-communal conflict, armed attacks, and kidnappings”.
The authorities in Ghana in a rejoinder tweeted Thursday morning, declared the statement unauthorized.
The purported warning followed similar advisories by the United States, United Kingdom, Ireland, Canada, Germany, and others, since October.
The Ghana Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration says it does not know of any threat targeted at Ghanaians who live happily amongst their Nigerian counterpart.
