The Police has deployed anti-terrorist squad to the Kwahu area in the Eastern region during the Easter celebration to maintain peace and order following recent terror attacks in neighbouring countries.

The Director of Public Affairs for the Ghana Police Service, Superintendent Cephas Arthur, however, called on the public to be extra vigilant in order to make the work of the police easier.

"We are in an era where these [terrorist] attacks [are rampant]; although they are not happening in Ghana, they are all around us, and we know that mostly the terrorists also attack crowds. So, we have also deployed persons, who are well trained to manage that," Supt. Arthur noted.

"Policing is intelligence-led. In order to do preventive or proactive policing, you have to strengthen your intelligence. So, our intelligence apparatus has been strengthened already, and we have personnel on the ground before the Easter festivities at Kwahu.

"We have some anti-terrorist personnel also deployed over there. We have to be very vigilant as members of the public [and] pick pieces of information. Everything that we see that is not normal or unusual, we should not sleep over them; we should endeavour to pass those pieces of information onto the police or the security agencies there, so that they can also work. We [the police] are looking seriously at the activities of terrorists," he told Accra-based Class FM.

He, however, said adequate security measures have been put in place to ensure an incident-free Easter.
