In response to the tenuous security situation in the Bawku Municipality, plans are underway by the Ministry of National Security, in collaboration with the Ghana Armed Forces and other relevant security institutions, to deploy a special Task Force to areas within the Municipality identified as hotspots of violence.
Set within this context, a delegation, comprising Mr Edward Asomani, National Security Coordinator; Major General Thomas Oppong-Peprah, Chief of the Army Staff, and other heads of State security and intelligence agencies, on Thursday, May 4, 2023, paid a working visit to the Bazua Military Camp, in the Binduri District of the Upper East Region, to interact with the troops that would constitute the Special Task Force.
Engaging with members of the troop, the National Security Coordinator, reaffirmed the Ministry of National Security’s unflinching support in ensuring that the mandate of the Task Force is realized. He added that the Ministry was committed to ensuring that the logistics required to support operations and the welfare of the troops would be provided.
It needs stating that the deployment of the new Task Force would not only augment operations of existing security personnel in the area, but would be aimed at addressing identified gaps in the operations of troops currently on deployment in parts of the Municipality.
The visit by the security heads comes on the rear of elevated savagery in the Bawku District, among Mamprusi and Kusasi gatherings, following the enskinment of an opponent Bawku Boss on February 15, 2023. While worries have been raised over the appearing insufficiency of continuous endeavors to address the security circumstance nearby, the critical entertainers inside the country’s security engineering stay confident that harmony would be reestablished to the Bawku District.
