Police officials are also yet to confirm the intentions of these men for possessing these bombs and also how they got arrested but information reaching YEN.com.gh from the police at Odorkor show one of the men is linked to ISIS in Libya. He is currently behind bars.

Meanwhile the head of public relations, Efia Tenge is expected to issue a public statement on the issue as investigations continue into the matter.

Suspicions of a probable terrorist attack are not confirmed but this development follows the previous call on the government to take a closer look at national security against terror attacks in the country.

YEN.com.gh had earlier reported of how investigations by the Libyan government show how Ghana, Gambia, Senegal, Niger, Chad, Mali, and Eritrea, had between 50 and 100 of its citizens in the militant group.

The revelation by the Libyan government followed an argument by ranking member on parliament's foreign affairs committee, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, that Ghana ranks among the highest countries with IS recruits in Libya.

Okudzeto's concerns have been downplayed by the government and the majority who claim there remain no existential evidence to such claims and reports.
