The Editor in Chief of the New Crusading Guide, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako has accused government of riding on the back of the terror alert issued in the country to deport the three ex-South African police officers.

According to him, the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) charged the three South African nationals and the security chief of the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) flagbearer with wild charges in order to give credence to their arrest.

The three; 54-year-old Major Ahmed Shaik Hazis (Rtd.), 39-year–old WO/ Denver Dwayhe Naidu (Rtd.) and 45-year-old Captain Mlungiseleli Jokani (Rtd), together with Captain (rtd) Edmund Koda were arrested for allegedly training a group of young men on weapon handling, among others.

They were charged with conspiracy to commit crime and unlawful training.

The South African nationals have since been deported back to South Africa.

However, contributing to a panel discussion on Joy FM, Kweku Baako indicated that Ghana’s laws “do not give you the opportunity to first frame a weird, wild card propaganda and put it out there in the context of the fact that we had declared the general terror alert in this country which we are all committed to.”

He stressed that it was within the context of Ghana being on high security alert that “they [government] played that game and it is a dangerous game to play.”

Kweku Baako warned that if care is not taken, such situations “can disarm all of us in terms of the security consciousness that we have to build.”
