The Ministry of National Security is drawing the attention of the general public to the growing threat of terrorism in the West African sub-region.
In a press release entitled “Enhancing Security at Public Places”, the Ministry has asked everyone “to be vigilant and extra careful about their personal and communal security”.
According to the Ministry, Ghana’s immediate neighboring countries have unfortunately suffered attacks from the terrorist groups, as their activities have spread from the Sahelian region towards the costal West-African nationas.
Countries such as Burkina Faso, la Côte d’Ivoire and Togo that are sharing borders with Ghana have all experienced such terrorist attacks, the Ministry added.
