Ghana police foil coup against president, arrest 3

Ghana police foil coup against president, arrest 3

The police in Ghana said they have foiled a suspected coup against the president on Friday when they arrested three people believed to have been amassing makeshift bombs, weapons and computer equipment.

Ghana’s Information ministry said the men were taken into custody after 15 months of surveillance during which they tried to obtain weapons from military personnel.

It added that they also secured funding for the purpose of taking over the reins of government.

The ministry’s statement said one of the suspects, acting on behalf of the alleged ringleader, had contacted a number of serving military personnel about the plot.

It was not clear how advanced any threat was, or whether the suspects were known to authorities, although one was identified as a Ghanaian weapons manufacturer.

The ministry could not be reached for further comment.

“The joint operation was to neutralise an elaborate plot targeted at the presidency, and with the ultimate aim of destabilising the country,” the statement issued on Monday said.

It further said the suspects were part of a group pretending to work on education, health and homelessness to radicalise young people.

The ministry published a list of the weapons retrieved during the operation, including 22 improvised explosive devices, six pistols, a long knife, three smoke grenades, seven mobile phones and three laptops.

Unrest is rare in Ghana, a country that prides itself on its ability to resolve political and social tensions peacefully, in contrast to some of its West African neighbours.

It has seen five constitutional transfers of power since its last coup in 1981.

The years of peace – along with its rich natural resources – have made it a darling for international investors.

  17. There are certainly a lot of details like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to bring up. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important thing will be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Both boys and girls feel the impact of just a moment?s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.
