The Member of Parliament, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has condemned the happenings in the Volta Region.
Some members of a secessionist group, Homeland Study Foundation otherwise known as Western Togoland blocked some roads preventing travelers from entering or leaving the Volta Region.
Tefle, Tsopoli and Juapong are some of the roads that was blocked by the group.
Posting on his timeline of Facebook, Mr. Ablakwa said “I strongly condemn the coordinated armed invasion of North Tongu this dawn. Never have we experienced this level of violent siege and display of outright impunity with law enforcement appearing helpless even as some of their counterparts became victims. The least we can do is to demand answers from the state and assurances of better protection of citizens as is our constitutional right. In the interim, I appeal to my beloved constituents to exercise much restraint. Our thoughts and prayers are with the injured and hospitalised as we continue to assess the extent of casualties.”
He also called on the state security agencies to conduct an investigation into the matter.
“We hope we can count on the state to undertake credible and impartial investigations to unravel the real motives and the true masterminds behind this violent incursion. We shall not be intimidated, neither shall we permit violent elements to destabilize the peace and tranquility we cherish so greatly. North Tongu shall continue to rise, by the Lord’s Grace and Mercies.” he added
The Police and the Military are however present in the area.
