Police in the Central Region on Thursdy picked up thirteen Pakistani nationals at Assin Fosu over suspicion that they could be terrorists. The thirteen who claim to be Ahmadiyya sect missionaries are said to have arrived in the country six months ago and have been preaching in villages across the country.

They were picked up Thursday morning while moving from Assin Nyankomase to Assin Fosu in the Central Region.

Assin Fosu District Police Commander, DSP Samuel Lawson, told Joy News the foreigners are currently in the custody of the Ghana Immigration Service while investigations continue.

He revealed his unit picked up the thirteen Pakistani nationals upon a tipoff around 9:00am Thursday, however, during interrogation, police could not tell if they were in the country legally or not.

They subsequently called in the Ghana Immigration Service to check whether their status in the country, DSP Lawson said.

Meanwhile, the Immigration Service told Joy News its preliminary investigations indicate that there is no cause for alarm.

Raymond Bahey, who speaks for the Ghana Immigration Service Training School in the Central Region, said their investigations confirm the claim by the Pakistanis that they are on a mission to preach Islam to communities across the country.

“However, investigations are still ongoing so whatever it is it will surely come out,” he assured, urging public calm.

The Pakistani nationals have since been transferred to the Cape Coast Regional headquarters of the Immigration Service for further investigations, Bahey revealed.

Ghana has been on high security alert after attacks on its neighbours – Burkina Faso and Cote DÍvoire – and other countries on the West African sub-region.

The National Security Council has called for public vigilance, stating a terror threat in Ghana is credible.

Tekashi 6ix9ine Continues To Instigate Beef With Chief Keef & Chicago Rappers



Tekashi 6ix9ine isn’t concerned about his well being, apparently.
Tekashi 6ix9ine’s is no stranger when it comes to beef. In fact, it seems as if he thrives off of it. While his feud with Trippie Redd has died down, he’s been beefing with many Chicago rappers, namely Chief Keef and the GBE crew. Over the weekend, Chief Keef was shot at during his stay at The W in Time Square. Thankfully, the shooters missed but many speculated that Tekashi 6ix9ine may have had some sort of involvement in it. The “GUMMO” rapper has completely denied it but it looks like he’s still into trolling the Chicago emcee and his crew.

Tekashi 6ix9ine can be considered more of a troll than a rapper and his latest Instagram post might further prove this. The rapper shared an incredibly short clip on his Instagram saying: “How mad would y’all be if I said I was the new king of Chicago?”

He’s clearly warranting a response from one of the Chicago rappers, whether it’s in person or on Instagram. The rapper caused an uproar after he claimed to be the “King Of New York.” 50 Cent may have co-signed it but there was definitely many others that haven’t been feeling the sentiment.

Earlier today, 6ix9ine was interviewed on TMZ where he spoke about the situation with Chief Keef. He completely denied any sort of involvement in the shooting, although it coincidentally happened after 6ix9ine reignited the feud with Chief Keef.

“I guess Chief Keef, he’s a gangsta rapper. He promotes violence. I mean, I guess he has a lot of beef on these streets. I don’t know who he’s beefing with that’ll hurt him but it’s definitely not me. I’m actually a fan,” he said.
