Over 700 Refugees Fleeing Attacks In Burkina Faso Arrive In Ghana

The Ghana Refugee Board has confirmed the arrival of over 700 Burkinabe nationals who have fled terrorist attacks in neighbouring Burkina Faso.

The refugees, most of them women and children, are said to have fled from several communities near Bittou province in the Boulgou department, where Islamist militant fighters have stepped up attacks targeting local militias.

Civilians have also come under attack following accusations by the Islamic militant fighters of collaborating with Burkina’s security and defence forces.

The foreigners are seeking refuge in communities including Bansi, Mognori, Sapeliga, Kutanga and Yarigungu in the Binduri, Bawku municipal and Bawku West district.

Tetteh Paddy, the executive secretary of the Ghana Refugee Board who confirmed the arrival of the Burkinabe nationals said some of the refugees are also being housed in Getiga, a border community in the Binduri district of the Upper East Region.

The overall increase in the debt numbers in cedi terms, according to data from the Bank of Ghana, came largely from the over 16% depreciation of the cedi against the dollar from December to June 2022.
