- Security officials are embarking on an exercise in preparation for possible terrorist attacks
- Ghana remains one the countries exposed to possible terrorist attacks
The counter-terrorist unit of the ministry of national security is embarking on an exercise to prepare against any terrorist act in Ghana.
This exercise is going to be in the form of a real-life event where security officials will mimic real-life professional scenarios for an objective assessment of the capabilities of Counter Terrorism respond agencies.
"In a nutshell, it is a form of rehearsal to sharpen our capability to respond to the terrorist attack and recover from it," director of the counter-terrorism, George Asiamah (Rtd), revealed.
Ghana remains one of the most peaceful African economies which has not suffered the brunt of terrorism.
YEN.com.gh has reported on how the minister in charge of national security, Albert Kan-Dapaah, warned against impending terrorist attacks against the country.
Just recently, the privileges committee of parliament summoned ranking member on parliament's foreign affairs committee, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa following warnings he gave over how Ghanaians are actively joining the terrorist group, ISIS.
ISIS, known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria is a terrorist organization best known for their gory videos of the beheading of soldiers, civilians, journalists and also the destruction of cultural heritage sites.
YEN.com.gh is building a platform where Ghanaians can share local news and own experiences with each other.
