Punish persons who leaked detailed terror alert – Anning

A security analyst, Dr. Kwesi Aning is calling for punishment for persons who leaked the detailed security intelligence on possible terror attack on the country.

Although the security alert was an internal memo to all heads of security agencies, a copy of it was sighted by Citi News .

In the alert, it was confirmed that a possible terrorist attack on Ghana was real, following the confessions of a suspected Malian terrorist being interrogated.

He is said to be the brain behind the Grand Bassam attacks in Cote D’Ivoire. According to the report, Ghana and Togo are the next targets after the attacks in Burkina Faso and Cote d’Ivoire.

The choice of Ghana according to the report is to take away the perception that only francophone countries are the target.

There has been an increase of fear and panic among Ghanaians following the revelation. In a Citi News interview, Dr. Kwesi Aning called on the Ghana Immigration Service which is the originator of the memo to investigate the matter and punish anyone found to have leaked the memo.

“If in the category of the GIS, that information is not esteemed to be sensitive then they have not committed any offence but if in their categorization this information is deemed to be sensitive, confidential, for your eyes only but it nevertheless leaked then we have a problem, then somebody must be punished first and foremost and then we must ask ourselves how do we ensure this does not happen again…,” Dr. Anning said.
