The extent of the carnage is not known because the number of dead and injured continues to rise.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack, although analysts believe it could be the work of the Islamic State in the Greater Sahara.

The attack is the deadliest since the conflict between Burkina Faso and armed groups linked to al-Qaeda and the Islamic State group began in 2015.

The Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) under the leadership of President Akufo-Addo, the Commander in Cheif, have been very busy maintaining security across Ghana’s boarders as a resultof the recent terrorist attacks in the sub region.

They continue to undertake security operations along the northern, northwestern, and northeastern borders, with the sole purpose of maintaining a resolute, robust front that will deter any potential aggressors from having any thoughts of destabilizing Ghana through acts of terrorism.

The President on his return, took to his official facebook page and posted the following:

“In the morning of Wednesday, 9th June 2021, in my capacity as Chair of the ECOWAS Authority, I paid a brief visit to Ouagadougou to sympathise with the President, Government and people of Burkina Faso, following last Saturday’s terrorist attack, which claimed the lives of 160 persons.

President Akufo-Addo

The fight against terrorism and violent extremism is a collective one, and I assured President Kabore and the people of Burkina Faso of the support of the countries of ECOWAS towards ridding our region of this menace”.
