The Information Minister is asking Ghanaians to be cautious of security threats in the country.

Kojo Oppong Nkrumah said reports of potential extremist attacks in Ghana are worrying and of great concern to the government.

This, he said, the government can only avert, should the citizenry support with information.

In a tweet on Saturday, May 21, the Ofoase Ayirebi lawmaker urged the public to immediately report suspicious activities or packages to security agencies.

“Very worrying reports of potential attacks of extremist elements targeted at Ghana. As we heighten the alertness of intelligence and security agencies, all of us need to be more security conscious and be quick to report any suspicious persons or packages to security agencies”

Already, the National Security Minister, Albert Kan-Dapaah, has also charged Ghanaians to be vigilant, in the wake of increased terrorist attacks in the subregion.

According to him, the activities of terrorists have become prevalent in recent times, and therefore the need for all citizens to pay closer attention to their ‘personal and communal security”.

The sector Minister also in a statement on Tuesday, May 17, disclosed that, based on information available to his outfit, Ghana has become a country of interest to terrorists; hence the need for all persons to be on guard.

“The Ministry is making a strong appeal for heightened vigilance in areas of mass gatherings, especially at public places of entertainment and worship, such as churches and mosques. The employment of guards, security gadgetry, and lighting of the areas surrounding the areas of public gatherings would all help, but nothing beats the vigilance of each of us individuals, taking personal responsibility and looking out for each other.
