Security analyst, and Dean of Academic Affairs at the Ghana Armed Forces Command and Staff College, Dr. Vladimir Antwi-Danso has cautioned security agencies not to focus all their energies and intelligence picking at the Volta Region but extend it to other parts of the country.
Speaking on Eyewitness News and monitored by obcommunication.com, Dr. Antwi Danso separatist group may have a huge agenda beyond just the Volta Region, hence there must be a concerted effort to push their focus beyond the boundaries of Volta region.
He added that it would not come to him as a surprise if in the coming days, other regions apart from the Volta Region have been attacked especially as currently, the focus is on the Volta Region.
“I will not be surprised to hear tomorrow that they have attacked the Western and Northern Regions, unrelated to the focus. The focus now is the Volta Region, but let us not limit our focus to the region. Their aim is to cause instability and so they can attack anywhere at all” he stated.
Dr Antwi-Danso further bemoaned the spate at which it is being politicized. He indicated that every institution and citizen in the country must be on a high alert especially as this may not be an all Voltarian affair.
“All institutions and citizens should be on high alert. Let us not politicize this. It is not Voltarians alone who may be behind this. This may be a grand agenda,” he added.
On Monday, September 28, 2020, 31 secessionists were arrested, arraigned and charged on three counts of conspiracy to commit the crime of rioting, the substantive offence of rioting, and being at an unlawful place by the Accra Circuit Court.
