Security expert, Irbard Ibrahim, has suggested the recent rate of contract killings and kidnapping could be as a result of external influence and intrusion.
In the view of the Executive Director of Irbard Security Consult, Ghanaians are not known to be contract killers or kidnappers hence the need for us to examine whether the instability we are encountering now could be linked to intruders.
He feels there may be some foreigners who have entered our country and carrying out these criminal activities.
He called on the security services to up their game and ensure the safety of citizens.
The neighboring countries of Ghana including Togo, Burkina Faso among others are encountering instability and because of that, some of them may have entered this country with negative influence on our youth.
He said there is a lot to be done when it comes to our security.
He called for integration, re-orientation and assimilation as part of measures to address the challenges confronting us today.
He was speaking to Nyankonton Mu Nsem on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm today [Tuesday] January 22, 2019.
The Minority in Parliament has said Ghana is now in a porous state since President Akufo-Addo took over office.
Addressing a press conference on Monday, the Minority said, ‘’since President Akufo-Addo became president, the security situation in the country has become very porous to the extent that Ghanaians are now living in perpetual fear.’’
They therefore called on the president to put in place measures to stem the alarming incidents of contract killings and robberies in the country. Such measures should include an assurance and concrete interventions from the president that will rid our country of the growing sense of insecurity.’’
