Private legal practitioner Ace Ankomah has cast doubt on news reports that Mohammed Nazir Nortei Alema, the Ghanaian graduate from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) who joined terrorist group ISIS, is dead.
In August last year, Nazir Nortei Alema left Ghana to go and join ISIS after completing his National Service.
News reports on Monday indicated that Nazir has been killed in battle in the Syrian city of Homs.
However, Ace Ankomah in a post on Facebook on Monday, March 21 indicated this was not true, pointing out how ISIS fighters had faked death in order to slip back to UK and Europe.
“I don’t believe that the Ghanaian ISIS, Alema, fighter is dead. I think it’s a ruse. For what?”
He, therefore, advised that Ghanaians must rather be alert and prepared for any eventuality.
“It has happened before. This should put us on our guard,” he stated.
