The Upper East Region particularly the Bolgatanga townships and parts of the North East and Northern Regions are sitting on a time bomb as police revealed terrorists behind attacks in Burkina Faso which have claimed many lives and destroyed properties worth millions of cedis are planning to launch similar attacks within Bolgatanga and its environs including areas in Tamale in the coming days.
A Police Wireless communique sighted by dreamzfmonline.com indicates that the terrorists may have already entered into the country and are hiding in locations the police are yet to uncover.

The Upper East and Northern Regional Police Commands have since been put on alert with the Inspector-General of Police directing police commanders to increase patrols in their various jurisdictions to quell the planned attacks.
