A Malian terrorist who is being interrogated as the brains behind the Grand Bassam attacks in Cote D’Ivoire  has confessed to a planed possible attack on the country, the National Security Council has reported.

The suspect is being investigated by Ivorian security agencies.

A security alert sent to all Ghana's security agencies dated April 9 2016, and seen by Pulse.com.gh said “Intelligence gathered by the National Security Council Secretariat (NSCS), indicates a possible terrorist attack on the country is real.”

Ghana and Togo are the next targets after the attacks in Burkina Faso and Cote d’Ivoire, the report said.

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

The Ivorian security agencies investigating the attack on the Grand Bassam, gathered that the terrorists “mode of entry into countries with their explosives and weapons is through concealment.”

“They enter through approved and unapproved entry points. In the Ivorian attacks they reportedly entered from Mali using Niger registered 4×4 vehicle. They reportedly concealed their weapons and grenade in the vehicles compartment for a spare tyre, padded with cushions and bubbled wraps to keep them stable and prevent noise.”

Following the real threat of the attack based on the information from Cote D’Ivoire; the NSCS has directed all controls, especially the northern borders with Burkina Faso to be extra vigilant.

The statement asked all security agencies to treat the instructions as important calling for thorough profiling of all people coming from high risk countries, including Mali, Libya and Niger.

The security alert statement was followed by a prophecy by the founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, Prophet T.B Joshua, predicting a possible terrorist attack on Ghana and Nigeria.

The renowned prophet, who gave the prophecy during a Sunday service on April 10 broadcast live on his Emmanuel TV channel, thus asked his congregation to pray for the two nations in a bid to forestall such plans by the enemy.

TB Joshua’s prophesy comes on the back of a similar terror alert issued by the National Security Council in March, which said countries within the West African sub-region are at risk.

The Council said based on intelligence from other agencies, it has every reason to believe that countries including Ghana is at risk.

“The National Security Council on the basis of briefings by the intelligence agencies and partners has determined that there is a credible terrorists’ threat to all countries in the sub-region.”
