Secessionist State of Western Togoland has warned Ghana to cease from committing further atrocities on their supposed citizens in the Volta Region following last Friday’s disturbances in the area.
In a press release purported to be from the Bureau of National Communications of the State of Western Togoland, the secessionists called on the Akufo-Addo to call his security agencies to order or risk their wrath.
“We wish to make it clear to the leadership of Ghana and her security agencies that enough is enough and the needless brutalities coupled with wanton disrespect for the fundamental human rights of the citizens of the Western Togoland has reached its apex,” the statement signed by the Director of Communications warned.
The statement added that the citizens of Western Togoland have a right to self-determination and Ghanaians must avoid playing politics with the matter.
Meanwhile, The Chiefs and people of Gbi-Hohoe have dissociated themselves from activities of the secessionist group calling itself the “Homeland Study Group Foundation,” seeking independence for Volta Region.
Divisional Chief of Gbi-Abansi in the Hohoe Municipality, Togbe Adzimah V whiles addressing the media in Hohoe said the chiefs, elders and the entire citizenry of Gbi-Hohoe detested the act of the illegality and vandalism being perpetuated by the Group.
“We wish to state unequivocally that we, the chiefs and people of Gbi-Hohoe dissociate ourselves from this Group and condemn in no uncertain terms their activities. We do not condone this act of illegality and vandalism perpetuated by the Group,” he added.
“The activities of this Group are becoming a threat to us in the Region and for that matter, Gbi-Hohoe following their Friday, September 25, dawn blockade of segments of the Juapong-Asikuma road and other roads in the region.
“And the attack at the Aveyime Police Station and hoisting of their supposed flags in certain parts of the Eastern and Volta Regions. How can a Study Group create or declare independence in a democratic country? This is unacceptable.”
He explained that the activities of the secessionist group, ‘Homeland Study Group Foundation’ was becoming an albatross on the peace living people of the region.
