Selected Police personnel from 11 African countries have undergone explosive recognition and awareness training to combat explosive-related threats by terrorists and extremists.
The two-week training dubbed: “Explosives Hazards Awareness Training (EHAT) of Trainers,” drew participants from Ghana, Nigeria, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Cameron, Egypt, Benin, Democratic Republic of Congo, Senegal, Burkina Faso and Gambia.
Held at the Ghana Police Command and Staff College, Winneba in the Central Region, the training programme, the first of its kind, was sponsored by the British Government, the African Union, and the Ghana Police Service (GPS).
Great to see a UK sponsored Ghanaian EHAT instructor teaching on this course in support of developing @UNPeacekeeping Explosive Hazard Awareness Training Instructor capacity. @UKDefenceAfrica @UKinGhana https://t.co/V6MCIy2HqO
