The National Security Ministry has provided logistical support to security agencies in the Upper East Region.
The move, according to the ministry, is to tighten border patrols as well as enhance the operations of the agencies at the border communities in the wake of the “See something, Say something” campaign.
The military received one Nissan pickup truck and 15 motorbikes. The Ghana Police Service received a Nissan pickup truck and 20 motorbikes. The National Investigations Bureau received two Nissan pickup trucks and 5 motorbikes while Ghana Immigration Service received one Nissan pickup truck and 10 motorbikes.
The initiative, the Upper East Regional Minister Stephen Yakubu, said would undoubtedly enhance border communities patrols.
“… the region is currently hosting several immigrants escaping these attacks at various locations in our communities bordering our neighbouring countries.”
Meanwhile, some other agencies like Ghana National Fire Service, the Prison Service and National Disaster Management Organisation were left out of the support.
The National Security Minister, Albert Kan-Dapaah, gave the assurance that by the end of the month, similar logistics would be secured for such agencies.
He therefore appealed to residents to be security conscious and embrace the campaign “See something, say something” in their various communities.
