The 4-star hotel had 65 rooms, conference-hosting facilities, a Chinese restaurant and a cocktail bar.

It also had a swimming pool, tennis court and 16 catering apartments, in what he said, cost a total of $5 million to build.

But Rawlings, who was president at the time, reportedly directed armed officers to besiege the place and take the hotel down after having suspicions about the ownership of the hotel.
