The ship entered the Ghanaian waters at 1am from the Ivorian waters from the high seas, the Western Naval Command ship GND BILIKA, went to meet it to provide escort. Because the badge cannot move by itself it is been pulled by a speed boat. There are already fixed high tension cables from the badge which will be connected to the national grid. We are not told how fast they can fix it to the national grid.
Currently we have spotted another ship which we suspect it and so we are given it a close monitoring.
