Bro isn’t it weird. Were investigations done deeply to confirm whether the 27 released aren’t part of the terrorist. This terrorism starts like this and it’s a high time our national security sit up to fight against it. Ghana is surrounded by countries that faces this challenges and that should prompt us that we’re not far from it.

It’s so serious and alarming but we play with everything in Ghana. It’s time our security services needs to be alert as terrorism isn’t far from happening right here in Ghana. Nigeria, Burkina Faso and Ivory Coast all are experiencing this things and have we forgotten that we share borders with this countries? God help us
