The Volta Regional Security Council has arrested 10 members of the separatist movement, Homeland Study Group Foundation.
This comes after the group declared parts of Ghana as independent ‘Western Togoland State’.
The leader of the group, 80-year old Charles Komi Kudzordzi, popularly known as Papavi Hobedetor, made the independence declaration at a public gathering in Ho on Saturday, November 16.
He cited the recent omission of roads in the Volta Region from the Critical Roads list in the 2020 budget, as evidence that they have been neglected by the government.
The government subsequently asked Ghanaians to disregard the declaration and promised to deal with the group.
Speaking to Citi News’ Anass Seidu, the Volta Regional Minister, Dr. Archibald Letsa, said steps are being taken to arrest everyone involved.
