At court today, Mr.Alhassan’s case was adjourned to April 20.

His arrest is part of security measures by the national security operatives in Ghana to help combat any terrorist attacks in the country after admitting that Ghana was vulnerable to terrorist attacks in the wake of attacks on neighboring countries.

Last month news broke that one of the Ghanaian ISIS recruits, Mohammed Nazir Nortei Alema, had died in Syria. News of terrorist attacks in Ivory Coast and Nigeria has also called for the national security operatives to intensify their work on keeping Ghana against terrorism attacks
