“The security apparatus of the nation”, the statement, added: “Continues to be retooled and vigilant to tackle any major security threat within the jurisdiction. Ghanaians, foreign residents and visitors are advised to continue to go about their normal ways of life without fear but also encouraged to be security conscious as always”.
