Don’t go to Gao! They’re abducting, killing Christians; our rescue ability ‘very limited’ – Gov’t warns Ghanaians

Minister of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration has cautioned Ghanaians against travelling to the Gao Region in Northern Mali and its surrounding areas.

The ministry’s caution comes on the back of the abduction and execution of travellers, particularly Christians, in the francophone West African country.

The ministry has, therefore, called on Ghanaians already in the Gao Region to leave immediately.

A statement issued by the ministry said: “In view of recent abductions and executions of travellers, especially Christians (including Ghanaians) in the Gao Region of Northern Mali, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration advises against all travels to Gao and its surrounding areas in northeastern Mali”.

“Commercial transport operators and drivers who still ply the Gao route from Ghana are particularly advised, as a matter of urgency, to suspend all operations to that part of Mali.”

“Ghanaians in the Gao Region are also advised to leave immediately for their safety and security,” it added.

The ministry noted: “The government of Ghana’s ability to facilitate the departure of Ghanaian nationals from the Gao Region is very limited.”
