The media criticized by the office of Chief Imam of Ghana for overstating the reportage and talks on the recruitment of some Muslim youth by Islamic State or ISIS.
However, the office of Chief Imam worried about the development and asserts it is taking steps to make sure Muslim leaders talk their youth out of possibly joining any terrorist group.
Another Ghanaian Muslim youth has been identified to have joined the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
The national security has recognized him as Rafiq with no extra details given.
There is another news of another girl joining the group apart from the twenty-five-year-old graduate of the KNUST, Nazir Nortei Alema, who was revealed to have joined the Islamic State earlier this week.
But the representative of the Chief Imam Alhaji Mohammed Gado told media that there has been no supplementary verification that certainly these individuals have joined ISIS.
Alhaji Gado asked, this is a very worrying development, but I want to believe that the media is overstating this, if out of 27 million, and one child has gone out do not you think we are overstating this matter?
Further, he said, and there has been no evidence that this young guy who has disappeared has actually been involved with the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
At the same time, the Chief Imam is calling Imams at various mosques to discuss the matter and educate Muslims especially, parents to stop their children from joining any militant group.
