The Ghana Police Service has urged all Ghanaians to remain calm amidst terrorist prophesy by popular Nigerian Prophet, T. B Joshua.
The founder of the Synagogue Church Of All Nation (SCOAN) on Sunday encouraged his church members to pray for Ghana and Nigeria as he foresaw imminent foreign attacks on the two countries.
According to him, the attacks which have been planned to take place at public gatherings will happen on a Thursday, Friday or a Saturday in April 2016.
But the Police in Ghana in a statement have assured the public that it will collaborate with other security agencies to put in place measures to avert any possible terror attacks.
