Security Analyst, Dr. Kwesi Aning has said the disclosure by the Minority in Parliament of Ghanaian migrants joining the dreadful terrorist group — the Islamic State — in Libya is no news.

At least 100 Ghanaians joined the deadly terrorist group and according to the Minority the figures were picked from a report from the Libyan government through its Attorney General.

Speaking at a press conference in Parliament House on Tuesday, the Minority spokesperson on Foreign Affairs, Mr Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa tasked the government to collaborate with its Libyan counterpart to address the issue before it escalates to Ghana.

According to him, the Ghanaian converts are “frontline fighters” for ISIS. “What is more unnerving; the special enquiry found that kidnappings of expatriates were mostly carried out by Islamic State foreign fighters from Ghana, Turkey and Tunisia,” he said.

But in a reaction in a radio personality profile interview on Accra based Starr FM on Wednesday, Dr. Aning who is also the Director, Faculty of Academic Affairs and Research at Kofi Annan International Peacekeeping Training Centre (KAIPTC) said: “All this talk about fifty to one hundred Ghanaians who have joined ISIS, that is eighteen months old rubbish.”

“I have gotten so irritated the whole of today when people call me [to have my oppinon on the minority’s claims]…I started telling my governing board about this eighteen months ago that there’s an army on the Sahara three thousand five hundred strong…being paid a $1500 to $3000 every month to come as foreign terrorist fighters and undermine states.

“When I hear that a member of parliament, parliamentarians are making noise, it raises fundamental questions…,” he said in the interview with Bola Ray on his Starr Chart programme.

I listened to Ablakwa being interviewed on the Point Blank segment on the Eye Witness News on Citifm yesterday(13/10/2017) on this issue. When asked categorically whether he has evidence whether the so-called report was authentic, he dodged the question. Pressed further whether it is really true that Ghanaians in Libya were involved with ISIS, he started tattling,stuttering and beating about the ***barred word***. Pushed some more to give a name, he got pissed off and accused the interviewer being "unpatriotic" because he was asking too many probing questions. so there were it has not been proven that, even if the story is true, there are Ghanaians are involved. How on earth can we allow this empty-head SHIIT (symbolised by his bald head) to become an MP and more so, a member of the Foreign Affairs Committee of Parliament.HOOLLLLY SHIIIIT

Ablakwa, listen to the Doctor. He knew of it your rubbish 18 months ago. At that time your government was in office. Did you hear he mention of it? Because he knows the implication of such matters, if is true. You know nothing, absolutely nothing about foreign matters and security implications. A whole parlimentarian? This is sad for my country. The title "honourable" alone is an assert so try and educate yourself on matters like these if you have no clue, Ablakwa

@ERNEST, were you expecting the Doctor to hold a press conference like the minority in parliament did? Please, security matters are not dealt with way and Ablakwa knows or is expected to know that.

when did this childis brain Ablakwa become a security analyst. as for NDC the least said about you the better. everything you people dont know how to do. you are soo incCompetent in everything. no wonder the likes of Ablakwa are in parliament. THE NPP WILL NOT HAVE GONE THIS WAY. NPP IS FULL OF INTELLIGENT PERSONS BECAUSE THEY DO THEIR RESEARCH WELL BEFORE THEY SPEAK. IT MAKES ME WONDER IF THERE ARE TRUELY INTELLIGENT PEOPLE IN NDC, BECAUSE NO SSENSIBLE PERSON EVER ADVICED ABLAKWA TO STOP THIS BULLLLLSHIT OF A SHIIIT. disgraceful minority. unintelligent people!!
The question is do you treat security issues in public like the NDC is doing? This is infantile, childish..So this NDC people want to rule Ghana again.. The best you could done as a parliamentarian is to channel such an information to the security people to handle it than to come to public and create fear and panic

I still maintain that Ablakwa (Meaning:-just a deceiver in my mother tongue - Ga)must be arrested for public deceit.
