This dawn, Friday, 25th September 2020, we woke up only to hear that the illegal Separatist group, have attacked Juapong, a town in the North Tongue District of the Volta Region.
The group is reported to have mounted huge signposts with the inscription ‘Welcome to Western Togoland‘ at different entry points as motorists find it difficult to leave the town.
Unfortunately, the group is claiming that it has captured three personnel of the Ghana Police Service after attacking the Aveyime and Mepe Police Stations.
Car tyres are being burnt in the process as roadblocks are being mounted at different entry points.
An interview with Ghana’s Klikor King, Torgbi Xenodzi Dogbey II, strictly condemns the act saying the successionist group should go back and understand the History of the first Partitions of Eweland between 1884 to 1890 and stop disturbing the Peace of Ghana.
Some of us know that they are being incited by some persons in the country for political gains, but they must put a stop to it now. Hence the reason some people do not comment nor condemn their actions, not even the Flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress.
The King said the Tongue Territory has never been a part of German Protectorate but has always been a Part of the British Protectorate, the Goldcoast.
Stop disturbing Ghana Now, Ghana’s Only Kikor Seer King, Torgbi Xenodzi Dogbey II warns the Secessionist group.
The King also commends the industrious Volta regional Minister, Hon. Dr. Letsa Archibald for being active and condemning the act.
He assured that within an hour or two the “situation will be brought under control.”
For the police who had been captured, the Minister said
“There is situation underway to get them released,” he said in connection with the arrest of the three police officers.
However, earlier in September, the police mounted a search for members of the group – Homeland Study Group Foundation (HSGF) – after their signposts were spotted at Akuse in the Eastern Region of Ghana
The HSGF being led by Charles Kormi Kudzordzi operates in secrecy to avoid arrest.
Some of its members are being tried currently over attempts to push for the secession of the Volta Region from Ghana for the creation of Western Togoland.
In late May, Security forces arrested 14 persons suspected to be linked to separatists Homeland Study Group Foundation. The 13 persons – 11 males and three females – were picked at a meeting at Sovie in the Volta region.
