Ghanaian authorities say they have raised security alert levels in the country in preparation for future attacks.
Separatists in south-eastern Ghana may be plotting a fresh wave of attacks in the region, according to National Security Minister Albert Kan-Dapaah, as part of their push for a breakaway state of Western Togoland.
Authorities are also concerned that ethnic tensions in northern Ghana could be used by armed groups to commit bloodshed.
It is also believed that militants could cross over from neighbouring Burkina Faso, where armed groups linked to the so-called Islamic State and al-Qaeda have recently stepped up attacks.
Kan-Dapaah told MPs that in the context of increased instability in West Africa, the government must be proactive, and that security agencies are fully equipped to combat any threats, including beefing up security measures along the country’s border with Burkina Faso.
Ghana is one of West Africa’s most stable countries, but it shares borders with other dangerous countries.
It is pertinent to mention that the Somali Spy Agency on Tuesday issued a warning about an alleged conspiracy by al-Qaeda-affiliated Al-Shabab Militants to assassinate the president and prime minister.
