The Chiefs and people Gbui-Hohoe, Alavanyo and Anlo traditional area have jointly condemned the disturbances by the Western Togoland group in the Volta Region.
The Chiefs who have dissociated themselves from the recent protest have urged security agencies to deal ruthlessly with everyone involved.
Addressing the media Chief of Gbui, Togbui Agyema V says they are not in support of the activities of the Western Togoland group.
Armed men demanding the secession of Western Togoland from Ghana blockaded major entry points to the Volta region of on Friday morning.
They held three police officers hostage, including a District Commander, and attacked two police stations. Prior to the blockade, the group reportedly broke into an armory and stole weapons.
About 12 hours before Friday's dawn operation, the Western Togoland Restoration Front (WTRF) published photos of the graduation ceremony for around 500 personnel who underwent training for months in secret locations, raising questions over the effectiveness of security agencies in the region.
A previous unsuccessful attempt to declare Western Togoland independent from Ghana took place in 2017. In March 2020, around 80 members of the separatist group were detained for protesting the arrest of seven leaders of the Homeland Study Group Foundation. The charges were later dropped.
