Ghana’s national security sources have said that a possible terrorist attack on the country is real, following the alleged confessions of a Malian suspected terrorist who is being interrogated as the brain behind the Grand Bassam attacks in Cote D’Ivoire.
The suspect is being investigated by the Ivorian security agencies for terrorism.
In a security alert sent to all the country’s security agencies dated April 9, 2016, a copy of which is available to Citi News, it said, “Intelligence gathered by the National Security Council (NSCS), indicates a possible terrorist attack on the country is real.”
According to the report, Ghana and Togo are the next targets after the attacks in Burkina Faso and Cote d’Ivoire.
The choice of Ghana according to the report is to take away the perception that only francophone countries are the target. The Ivorian security agencies investigating the attack on the Grand Bassam, gathered that the terrorists “mode of entry into countries with their explosives and weapons is through concealment.” “They enter through approved and unapproved entry points.
In the Ivorian attacks they reportedly entered from Mali using Niger register 4×4 vehicle. They reportedly concealed their weapons and grenade in the vehicles compartment for spare tyres, padded with cushions and bubbled wraps to keep them stable and prevent noise.”
Following the real threat of the attack based on the information from Cote D’Ivoire; Ghana’s National Security has directed all controls, especially the Northern Borders with Burkina Faso to be extra vigilant. The statement asked all security agencies to treat the instructions as important.
The security alert statement dated April 9th was followed by a prophecy by the founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, Prophet T.B Joshua, predicting a possible terrorist attack on Ghana and Nigeria.
The renowned prophet, who gave the prophecy during a Sunday service on April 10 broadcast live on his Emmanuel TV channel. He asked his congregation to pray for the two nations in a bid to forestall such plans by the enemy.
