Terrorism Prophecies on terrorism must cease - Kwaku Baako

“If we decide to bring in this scare mongering about mercenaries, we will disarm ourselves. They bring in distractions and they pollute the actual concept,” Kwaku Baako said.

Managing Editor of the New Crusading Guide newspaper Abdul Malik Kweku Baako Jnr has cautioned religious leaders to cease the scare mongering on possible terrorist attacks.

He argued that prophecies about terrorist attacks on Ghana has the capability of causing fear and panic and will disarm citizens.

“We don’t forge the appropriate level of community security consciousness that could help security services to deal with this menace because we bring in distractions, we pollute the actual concept and this whole prophetic thing and the attempt to link it to the terror alert, to try and give vindication are part of the distraction,” Kwaku Baako said during a panel discussion on Joy FM.

Popular Nigerian Prophet T.B. Joshua prophesied that Ghana was going to be attacked by terrorists in a few days.

A day after his televised prophecy, a security intel memo meant for heads of security agencies in Ghana which indicated a terrorist threat was in the offing, was leaked and widely circulated and discussed on social media and in mainstream media.

Kwaku Baako believes that such “prophetic scare mongering of all these Pastors” must be stopped.

“The National Security directive was dated April 9 so it pre-dated the prophetic scare mongering that was issued on the 10. Now because there had been this prophetic scaremongering; I don’t have the evidence, but there were discussions on social media after the leakage that this had vindicated what the prophet had said,” he said.

He continued saying such attempts at validating TB Joshua’s prophecy was “crude” because “there is no basis for that because who didn’t know before the prophecy that based on intelligence estimate of how the terrorism scare is going, we could easily be a target too? Who didn’t know?”
