Self-acclaimed International Relations, Security Analyst and Peace Ambassador Ibrahim Irbard has warned that Ghanaians could be courting terrorists attacks if they fail to deal with Fulanis in a more humanitarian manner.
His caution comes on the heels of a disclosure that two of the suspected terrorists who attacked Bassam Beach Resort in Abidjan resulting in more than 20 deaths have been identified to be of Fulani extraction.
In his Facebook post, he indicated in particular that Ghana should find a humanitarian way of dealing with the Agogo crisis and others involving Fulanis so that grievances do not lead to Al Qaeda recruitment because two of the three young men who attacked Ivory Coast were Fulanis.
Details emerging from the attack in Ivory Coast indicate that one Hamza a Fulani and a member of the Murabitun wing of Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghrib, Abdul Rahman the Fulani member of the Sahara Brigade/Region and Abu Adam Ansari played various roles during last week’s attack
“Ghanaians should not panic and should go about their normal lifestyles because our able security agencies are working closely with our international partners to keep Ghana safe. No cause for alarm”, he indicated.
