Suspected Terrorists in Sissala West
At approximately 11:45 hours on the September 27th, 2023, the Police command received intelligence that some people suspected of being terrorists may have entered Ghana through Fatchu, a community in the Sissala West District
This occurred when Police in Burkina Faso received intelligence about the suspected terrorist in a hideout (Burkina Faso) near Fatchu( Ghana) and immediately moved in to arrest them but they bolted even before the police arrived at their hide.
Nonetheless, a Ghanaian citizen ID card, two (2) cell phones, an unspecified number of ammunition, clothing, and eight bikes among others were found at their safe house.
A search into their phones revealed pictures of men dressed in terrorist regalia of which one young man of about forty (40) years bears the same resemblance as the picture on the Ghanaian voter ID card.
The security services in Gwollu have been notified of this development and tare currently conducting patrols intermittently in and around Fatchu.
The Police are closely monitoring the situation and any further development will be communicated accordingly.
