Volta Regional Minister, Dr. Archibald Letsa says the initial plan of the Homeland Study Foundation also known as Western Togoland was to target sensitive installation including the plan to burn the Ho market
He said the security agencies had the intelligence about their plans and the road blocks but did not know which particular roads would be blocked.
Some members of the secessionists group yesterday, September 25, 2020 block some roads particularly Tefle, Tsopoli and Juapong which left some travelers stranded.
“The security agencies are doing their best and we have to commend them… But for the effort and proactiveness of the security agencies, worse things would have happened. We knew [they had a plan for last night]… They mentioned in their plan that there would be roadblocks but it wasn’t specified where the roadblocks would be but if you see their list of targets, and you want to prioritize as to which one to protect, obviously we took the right decision to protect very sensitive state installations.” Dr. Letsa said.
He also said the security agencies are monitoring the activities of the group and have strategies to stop them incase of any attacks.
“We are monitoring their activities and we know what they are up to. We have intelligence on the ground and I can assure you that it is only today that they have come out boldly… We are on top of the issue. We met today and we have strategized as to what we are going to do. We shall make sure that peace prevails in the region, before, during and after the elections.” he noted.
