A Counter Terrorism Unit has been set up by the President John Mahama to deal with any terror threat on the country.

The Unit which will be headed by the president security adviser Baba Kamara was announced by the president after a quarterly meeting with Council of State members.

"In the course of time, you will find that various people are positioned in different parts of the capital and other cities. We are not looking at only Accra, we are looking at other places just to make sure that response time is very quick in the event that something like this happens,” the president said.

This has been necessitated by the continuous threat of possible terror attack on Ghana after attacks on Burkina Faso and Ivory Coast this year.

The President said  Ghana is relying on Intelligence from its neighbors in a collaborative efforts to ward of any attack.

“One of the most important things is intelligence sharing, we are getting Intel from our neighbors from Cote D’Ivoire, Burkina Faso among others. We are all alert and watching if there are suspicious people.”

A leaked document showing the confessions of a Malian linked to the attacks on Ivory Coast indicated that there is a real threat against Ghana.

This followed prophesies from renowned Nigerian Prophet TB Joshua of an attack on Ghana and Nigeria. He has since recanted his prophesy saying God has heard the cries of Ghanaians.
