The Police administration says it will continue to take all necessary measures to guarantee the security of the country after the arrest of the three South African ex-Police officers in Ghana.
The retired South African police officers were picked up at Agona Duakwa in the Central Region for allegedly engaging in activities with national security implications.
The three — Major Ahmed Shaik Hazis (retd), 54; Warrant Officer Denver Dwayhe, 33, and Captain Mlungiseli Jokani, 45 — were picked up at the EL-Capitano Hotel where they had been based since arriving in the country at the beginning of this month.
Speaking to Accra-based Citi FM on the development on Wednesday, the Director of Police Public Affairs, Superintendent Cephas Arthur, said the Police would continue to remain vigilant, especially in the face of terrorism threats in the region.
“This is an attestation to the fact that the security agencies or the security apparatus are on the ground and they are ready …When it gets to certain aspects of security, it becomes collaboration between security agencies and what we are saying is that this is an assurance to the general public that the security agencies especially the Police are up to the task and we are doing our work,” he said.
