A Security Expert, Ibrahim Irbad has downplayed the fear that the hosting of two Yemenis in the country has attracted.
Speaking on ‘’The Analyst’’ on Radio XYZ 93.1, he said in conflict resolution, we have the DDR approach, Disarmament, Demobilization and the Rehabilitation approach and stated that these refugees are at the Rehabilitation stage and will not pose any threat to the country because they have been screened thoroughly and any threat removed.
He further indicated that terrorism is not only an American problem but a worldwide problem and advised other countries to help with the rehabilitation and Reintegration of these people.
He said these two have been disarmed and will be monitored round the clock. They won’t be allowed to use the Internet, Mobile Phones and even if they want to speak to their families, a secured phone will be made available to them.
Ghana is not likely to be attacked by these groups because when we deploy our soldiers to help bring peace to the world, we are rather helping these groups, unlike others countries like Kenya, Somalia that allowed their territories to be used to fight such militants.
As to why they were not taken to other countries like Saudi Arabia, which is closer, Irbad said, that country is experiencing military engagements in Yemen and Ghana has got a better human rights record and therefore a better destination and a feather in our cup.
He assured Ghanaians that these two will be kept under strict checks with assistance from the CIA and therefore they would not have any opportunity to carry out attacks on the country.
