Some photos circulating on various social media platforms have raised questions from sections of Ghanaians.

The photos show some military activities at a supposed Western Togoland training ground, with a number of uniformed men believed to be part of the operatives.

A slab with the inscription, ‘Western Togoland Gorrilla Army Training Camp’ with the motto ‘We stand firm to defend’ was captured in one of the photos.

The development has left many Ghanaians asking what the security apparatus in the country are doing to control the situation, considering the country witnessed the declaration of their independence, emergence of purported currencies and an anthem yet, not much was done.

Meanwhile, suspects arrested in connection with the group are still in court.

Background

On November 16, 2019, the leader, with about 100 people in attendance at Moleme in Ho, unlawfully declared the Volta Region as a sovereign state of Western Togoland.

Following the declaration, seven persons were arrested and put before court for the offence of treason.

On December 4, the police arrested 21 members of the Homeland Study Group Foundation championing the agenda of Western Togoland in Ho.

The suspects were said to be planning a demonstration following the arrest and detention of seven members of the group.

Their leader, Kudzordzi, is still at large.
