The leader of the separatist group Homeland Study Group Foundation, Mr Charles Kormi Kudzordzi also known as Papavi has refuted claims that the group were involved in the attacks in the Volta Region.
In a video addressing the issues, Papavi said the group is not violent and that he has made himself available to the security agencies on several occasions.
“The Homeland Study Group Foundation is a peaceful group. A peace-loving group, a peace-generating group, a peace-making group. I have made myself available to the police and to the security agencies on several occasions. Anytime they wanted me, I went there, we had a discussion and then I came home.”
He also added that he has written to the presidency on two occasions to discussed the matter but he has not received any reply.
“I have, on two occasions, written to the government of Ghana and the President to have us sit down and have this matter discussed at a round table conference. No attention has been paid to the letter. Ghana should intensify its level of investigations against people who do things and not just suspect and arrest people.”
It will be recalled that President Nana Akufo-Addo said the government is not relenting on its effort and that they will deal with the secessionist group.
“It is just a handful of people; these secessionists. We will deal with them. I have no doubt about it but there is no value for this country if I start making hysterical statements. I trust the security agencies, the armed forces, the police, I trust their leadership and intelligence agencies and I know they are all working very hard to make sure that this matter is dealt with as quickly as possible.” he said in an interview at Hello FM.
