President Akufo-Addo has appealed to Muslims in Ghana to be on alert and report suspicious characters in their neighbourhood to the police to foil any likely terror attack.

His call comes in the wake of terror attacks in neighbouring Burkina Faso and a recent arrest of a Burkinabe with a loaded pistol at a Church in Hamile in the Upper West Region.

President Akufo Addo was speaking at the 2019 Eid celebration at the Independence Square in Accra.

“While the security agencies work to keep all of us safe, I encourage you to report suspicious characters who come into your communities to take advantage of our well-acclaimed hospitality to unleash terror on our country to the Police. Let us also exercise restraint in the face of provocation, for lack of restraint would only feed into the destructive plan of these miscreants who seek to destroy in the name of religion.

“I applaud the vigilance of the members of the Roman Catholic Church in Hamile in the Upper West Region who together with the Church Leaders alerted the police about the presence in the church of an armed the Person is in custody.”

The President also commended Ghanaians both Christians and Muslims for their peaceful co-existence which he said has earned Ghana the admiration of many around the world.
