-President Mahama has described the suicide bombing in Brussels as a cowardly attack
- The attacks on Brussels has seen the country raise its terrorism threat to the highest level
President John Dramani Mahama has joined several world leaders in condemning the terrorist attacks in the Belgian capital of Brussels describing the act as a 'cowardly attack' on innocent people.
President Mahama in a tweet has thus called on Ghanaians to remain resolute in solidarity with Belgians affected by the bomb attack.
Belgium has now raised its terrorism threat to its highest level. The attacks come four days after Salah Abdeslam, the main fugitive in the Paris attacks was seized in Brussels.
“This is a day of tragedy, a black day… I would like to call on everyone to show calmness and solidarity,” he stated.
Meanwhile Ghana has tightened its security following fears of a possible terror attack in the country after recent attacks in neighboring Ivory Coast. This has been seen in a recent bill laid before parliament seeking to trace the calls of persons living in Ghana as part of efforts meant to fight against terrorism.
