Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa the Member of Parliament for North Tongu says the level of ignorance concerning the Western Togoland issue is shocking.
Mr Ablakwa says there has been a distortion of history and that has accounted for many of the youth to join the calls for independence of Western Togoland and that is creating mayhem.
Speaking on Joy FM's Newsfile on October 3, 2020, he said what they are seeking is not justified and many of these youth have been brainwashed to believe they have a solid course.
Mr Ablakwa said even though the police were able to calm the storm after an STC bus was set ablaze by the group, the security forces could have been a bit swift to bring the whole situation under control.
In its most recent act of violence, Members of the Homeland Study Foundation on Tuesday, September 29, 2020, attacked the State Transport Corporation (STC) in the Volta Regional capital, Ho, and set ablaze one of its buses.
The members also on Friday, September 25, 2020, also blocked major entries into the Volta Region.
This action left travellers to and from the Volta Region, particularly areas such as Tefle, Tsopoli and Juapong stranded.
The group burnt vehicle tyres and took control of two police stations, freeing suspects and taking weapons from the armoury.
