Following the arrival of more than 1,000 Burkinabe refugees, security at the Ghana-Burkina Faso border has been stepped up.

According to accounts, the Burkinabes fled after terrorist fighters attacked their towns in the area of Bittou in Burkina Faso, with the bulk of them being women and children.

The communities of Bansi, Mognori, Sapeliga, Kutanga, and Yarigungu in the Binduri, Bawku municipality, and Bawku West District are among those where the refugees are looking for refuge.

There is no need for concern, according to Palgrave Boakye Danquah, the government’s spokeswoman on security, in an interview with newsmen on Monday.

He stated that there is a continuous patrol on the Ghana-Burkina Faso border to ensure that the activities of the insurgents do not cross across.

“There is heightened security at all border towns and we have educated residents on our ‘See Something, Say Something’ campaign and they are helping with information,” he stated.

He said that they have all the information on the Burkinabe migrants and have screened the health of every refugee upon their arrival as an emergency precaution.

According to Danquah, they are keeping an eye on the situation in Burkina Faso and would deport the refugees once things are back to normal.
