A frustrated visa applicant who attempted to blow up the Italian Embassy is a foreign citizen, the Italian Ambassador has said.
The unnamed young man, said to be a visa applicant, had stormed the Embassy on Friday with a gas cylinder and a lighter ready to torch the place.
The Counter Terrorism Unit of the Ghana Police Service however, acted swiftly and bundled him away before he could actualize his threat.
In a letter addressed to Graphic Online in relation to our attempt to speak to the Embassy on the issue, the Ambassador said all visa proceedings in relation to the case were duly complied with.
The letter expressed gratitude to the Ghana police service for their intervention.
