The Africa Centre for Security and Intelligence Studies has warned that the country’s security is under threat.

According to them, their research has indicated that Salati-Jihadist group in Burkina Faso has shifted its attention to Christian Churches in Ghana.

Speaking on Okay FM’s 'Ade Akye Abia' programme, Mr. Paul Boateng, Head of Research, Africa Centre for security and intelligence studies explained that the group are looking to mate religious tensions in Ghana and Togo.

He added that, they are planning to attack churches in countries such as Ghana, Ivory Coast, Togo and Benin.

The group is also looking to operate from illegal mining zones in the Northern part of Ghana as these places are considered to be the safest places for them to conduct their activities.

He however noted that they have accordingly informed the security agencies and they are so far satisfied with their compliance.



SECURITY ALERT!

10th May 2019

Over the past four months, ACSIS has been monitoring the activities of the Salafi-Jihadist group in Burkina Faso. It appears the group has now shifted its attention to Christian Churches. On 28th April 2019, the Salafi-Jihadists conducted their first attack on a Church in Burkina Faso.

ACSIS analysis suggests the Salafi-jihadists are looking to incite religious tensions in Ghana and Togo. They are also planning to attack churches in countries such as Ghana, Ivory Coast,Togo, and Benin.

ACSIS analysis strongly suggests Churches in Ghana are the immediate target. The group is looking to operate from illegal mining zones in the northern part of Ghana, as these places are considered to be the safest places for them to conduct their activities.

ACSIS is looking to raise awareness of the threat so that appropriate measures could be taken.
