Burkinabe Refugees Arrive in Accra
The Ghana Refugee Board has confirmed that Over 700 Burkinabe nationals who fled terrorist attacks in Burkina Faso have arrived in the country.
The refugees of whom most are women and children are seeking refuge in communities in the Bawku Municipal and Bawku West districts.
The refugees are from communities near Bittou province in the Boulgou department, which have been attacked by Islamist militant fighters.
The attacks, although targeted at local Militias, civilians have come under attack after accusations by Islamic Militant fighters of cooperating with the country’s defense and security forces.
