Terrorist Attack: Tight Security At Courts
The Judiciary Service has asked Security personnel at various courts around the country to conduct a thorough check before allowing anyone to enter the court premises as part of the government’s security measures to resist probable terrorist attacks.
Security officers at the various courts have been instructed by the Chief Registrar, Seidu Yusif, to conduct a thorough search of all passengers with luggage and a further mandatory inspection of all approaching vehicles before allowing anyone into the court grounds and/or rooms.
To combat the threat of terrorism, the Chief Registrar also ordered that only court employees, security agencies, lawyers, their clients, and witnesses be permitted to attend proceedings.
The Court Registrar’s directive, as gathered, takes force today, Monday, until further notice.
As a result, the Minister of National Security issued a statement calling attention to the growing threat that Ghana could be a target, highlighting the need to beef up security measures and engage the people in being more vigilant.
In the face of rising terrorism threats, the National Security Ministry has informed Ghanaians that they have nothing to fear.
On May 24, the Ministry will launch a campaign to help Ghanaians report probable terror acts.
“See something, say something” is the slogan for the campaign.
