Assin Fosu District Police Commander, DSP Samuel Lawson had earlier said the Pakistani nationals who claim are Ahmadiyya sect missionaries are said to have arrived in the country six months ago.

But, the Ahmadiyya Mission in Ghana has denied any connection with the thirteen Pakistanis

Ahmed Anderson, General Secretary of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Mission in Ghana told Accra-based Joy FM that “This is very very strange, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Mission is not aware of any group of Pakistanis having come into the country in the name of Ahmadiyya mission to preach… Yes, the Ahmadiyya mission has some Pakistani missionaries in the country but we have a very structured system so when people come in, they have defined roles and we engage them in various ways and on no occasion would we allow any Ahmadiyya missionaries to be walking from one destination to another preaching without any recourse to the Ahmadiyya Muslim Mission."

“I have checked all our missions in this country since this news broke and we do not have any such group of people doing any such preaching anywhere. It is not possible at all that there will be any missionaries sent from any part of the world without channelling them through the structured system that we have,”he added.
