About 70 Nigerian militants occupying the Korkdam Hotel at Achimota in Accra have been rounded up by the Tesano police.

The Nigerians, who have been staying at the hotel since they arrived in Ghana for a reintegration programme, were in a standoff with the management of the hotel. It is unclear what sparked the altercation.

According to eyewitnesses, the police fired warning shots to disperse the disgruntled Nigerians, who mounted road blocks in the area. Residents of the area, especially some auto mechanics were involved in near fatal clashes with the ex-combatants.

The Nigerian High Commissioner to Ghana is reported to have rushed to the area to calm tempers “as well as negotiate for the release of his countrymen,” the editor of the Publisher newspaper Kofi Agyepong, who is at the scene told Citi News.
