Deputy Defence Minister and Member of Parliament for Nkoranza North constituency, Major Derrick Oduro (RTD) has explained that government has put in enough measures to ensure the country is safe in the wake of terrorist threats.

Speaking on Okay FM's 'Ade Akye Abia' programme, he explained that they will remain focus and ensure that Ghanaians especially those in the Northern regions of the country are protected.

"Ghanaians should also assist the security agencies by providing information about people they suspect," he said.

The United Kingdom (UK) has updated its foreign travel advice for British nationals travelling to Ghana, warning that terrorists are likely to try to carry out attacks in the country.

The advice published on June 7, 2019, adds that localized outbreaks of civil unrest can occur at short notice, and can become violent (sometimes involving weapons).

The advice reads: "If you’re in these areas, you should remain vigilant, exercise caution and follow the advice of local authorities. If this does happen, local police may impose curfews to contain the situation."

"Terrorists are likely to try to carry out attacks in Ghana. Attacks could be indiscriminate, including in places visited by foreigners".

Around 90,000 British nationals visit Ghana every year. The UK authorities note that, while most visits are trouble-free, crime does occur.

"In recent years, reported crime has increased, particularly over the Christmas period. Criminal activity ranging from petty street crime, to violent crime can occur at any time. Take sensible precautions. Be particularly vigilant in public areas, and take care when travelling by road".
