The national chief Imam Sheikh Dr. Osmanu Nuhu Sharubutu has categorically stated his office has nothing to do with the over 13 arrested Pakistani nationals, claiming to be preachers in Ghana.
The Pakistanis were arrested at Assin Fosu in the Central region Thursday upon suspicion they were engaging in extremist activities. They have, however, denied such claims, insisting they are Ahmadiyya Muslim Missionaries.
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Mission in Ghana has distanced itself from their activities with a section of the media alleging the foreigners are in the country under the aegis of the Chief Imam.
“It is not true that the people are in the country at the invitation of the National Chief Imam or at the expense of the National Chief Imam,” the spokesperson for the Chief Imam, Sheikh Aremeyaw said.
