“Our rapid deployment force is being upgraded into a full company strength with a good armour which will be on standby for emergency deployments. This has become necessary in view of the growing threats of terrorism and other security challenges in the country.”

Adequate measures have been put in place to deal with possible terror attacks in Ghana, according to Ghana’s National Security Advisor, Brig-General (Rtd.) Emmanuel Okyere.

Brig-General (Rtd) Emmanuel Okyere maintains that recent terrorist attacks in neighbouring West African countries have prompted the government to put measures in place.

The National Security Advisor has vowed that his outfit will clamp down on all forms of criminal activities in the five regions of the north, following growing concerns of insecurity within some mining communities in the northern part of the country.
