The National Security Council (NSC), apparently angered by a meeting between several former top security chiefs with former President Jerry John Rawlings, has banned them from all military and police installations and garrisons. The ban against seven former service commanders “takes with immediate effect and until further notice”, according to a statement on Wednesday signed by Dr Sam G. Amoo, National Security Coordinator It said the action was “in the interest of national security” and that a similar ban imposed on former President Jerry John Rawlings in 2001 is still in force. According to Brigadier-General Nunoo-Mensah, he and the other security chiefs were present at a luncheon hosted by former President Rawlings. He said he was yet to receive any information on the ban. Newspaper reports said the seven attended the meeting where “security matters”, especially pre-election violence, especially in the Northern Region were discussed. Deputy Information Minister Frank Agyekum said the National Security Council must have taken the decision based on intelligence available to it.
