Our region is a target of indiscriminate and barbaric terrorist attacks, let’s deal with it- Prez to ECOWAS

President Nana Akufo-Addo has admonished members of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) to put in measures in their various countries to fight off threats of terrorism.

The President indicated that the threat of terrorism, which has expanded from the Sahel to the coastal countries within the region, makes it crucial for leaders to implement and coordinate security initiatives.

He was speaking at the 61st ECOWAS Ordinary Session in Accra.

He asserted that the sub-region has become a target for terrorist attacks, a situation which has resulted in lost lives.

He called for regional action to help deal with the situation, adding there should be a collective collaboration.

“Our region continues to be the target of the indiscriminate and barbaric terrorist attacks, resulting in the loss of many innocent victims and the deterioration of the humanitarian situation in the targeted countries. These terrorist attacks are now not only focusing on the Sahel, but also expanding to the coastal states in our region. Faced with this constant terrorist threat, it is imperative for us to continue to implement our regional action plan against terrorism and coordinate our various initiatives. This will reinforce our collective response to these destabilizing threats. Our determination in this area must be stronger than ever,” he said.
