Security at the ICC was so tight. A combination of DSS, Police, Army and Civil Defence Officers manned all areas surrounding the vicinity of the ICC. The arrival of State House Security Operatives tightened the security leash. I was denied entry at first. “We cannot afford a security breach” the State House Security Operative told me. The connecting gate from the ICC to NICON was sealed and thus we had to do almost a 60 degrees walk to NICON. However, the security operatives were very civil. Despite that, fear no gree me take pictures of them oh.
