The Ghana Police Service has transferred to Accra the seven people who were arrested in the Northern region with rifles including two AK 47s.
The seven were arrested at Dzanton Daboase near Salaga after residents raised an alarm over their activities.
The Northern regional police spokesperson ASP Ebenezer Tetteh said the suspects have been sent to Accra for further interrogation and prosecution.
They are expected to be arraigned in court on Tuesday.
According to ASP Tetteh, the police is on the heels of one other suspect who is on the run.
“We are still pursuing him,” the public relations officer told Joy FM. “While we have taken the rest to Accra, we’re intensifying our search for him.”
According to Starr News reporter Alhaji Tanko, a laptop found in the room of one of the accused persons has videos of Taliban and other terrorism related sessions.
Tanko who had the opportunity to watch some of the videos said there was a blackboard in the room and with the inscriptions on the board, it is believed that is where the group use as their training sessions.
The Taliban is an Islamic fundamentalist political movement in Afghanistan.
ASP Tetteh said the suspects are currently in police custody and yet to be charged.
