As part of new security directives taken by the church in the wake of the recent threats, he said police officers had been deployed to the parish to support other security men.

He disclosed that the church together with the securities agencies would train church workers and parishioners on the new security arrangement.

He stated that certain doors would be closed during Eucharistic celebration and advised parishioners to be vigilant and security officers and report any movement of unsuspected persons.

Madam Ama Brago, a Parishioner said because of the relative peace in the country, many people do not consider the threat very seriously.

It is very scary so, this morning I saw someone dressed in black with a scarf so I have been monitoring the person’s movement,” she said.
