- John Kudalor has tasked Ghanaians not to pick any strange thing on the floor
- He has also urged all to report suspecting characters to the police
John Kudalor, the Inspector General of Police (IGP) has advised Ghanaians to desist from picking strange items, such as ladies handbags from the floor since they could be explosives.
He is also urging citizens to be more attentive to security in their communities and be conscious about their security so as to augment anti-terrorism efforts of the police. He also called on members in the community to supply information on suspicious characters in their communities, adding that this is key to help the Police to fight the scourge.Ghana’s national Security Council has put the nation on terror alert.
In an address read on his behalf at the commission of a new police station at Nkwatia in the Eastern region, the IGP said the security agencies will need the support of Ghanaians in order to prevent terrorist attacks on the nation.
He urged all to be security conscious and report suspicious characters to the security agencies for prompt action. He admonished parents to educate all on public safety and not to pick anything from the floor but rather, inform the Police.
"In other countries going through the scourge of terrorism, if they see even money on the ground, they don’t pick it because some of these things are triggers,” the speech read by the Director General of Operations of the Police service, COP Christian Tetteh Yohuno noted.
The caution comes on the back of the recent terror attacks on some West African countries. So far, Burkina Faso and Ivory Coast, both neighbours of Ghana, have been attacked by terrorists.
