Terrorists are likely to attack Ghana, the United Kingdom has warned its citizens, saying it could be “indiscriminate, including in places visited by foreigners.”
The UK High Commission in Ghana gave the warning in an updated travel advice to UK nationals in Ghana and those planning to visit the country.
“If you’re in these areas, you should remain vigilant, exercise caution and follow the advice of local authorities. If this does happen, local police may impose curfews to contain the situation,” the travel advice noted.
“Terrorists are likely to try to carry out attacks in Ghana. Attacks could be indiscriminate, including in places visited by foreigners”.
The warning comes following terrorists attacks in Ghana’s neigbouring countries: Ivory Coast and Burkina Faso.
Terrorists with links to ISIS are active in Burkina Faso and Mali. They have engaged in deadly firefights with local forces.
Meanwhile, an estimated 80,000 UK nationals visit Ghana every year and Ghana is one of the Western European country’s major trading partners in Africa.
