The lawyers for Homeland Study Group Foundation, a secessionist group in the Volta Region, are headed for a meeting with officials of the Office of National Security in Ghana’s national capital, Accra, today, 6 May 2019, following another arrest of Mr Charles Kormi Kudjordjie, also known as Papavi Hogbedetor, and seven others, who have been championing the independence of the Volta Region.


They were picked up by armed state security on Sunday evening while they met.

A statement issued by the police said the men were putting final preparations to their plan to declare independence for the Volta Region which the group still regards as Western Togoland.

The group wants a restoration of the pre-independent Western Togoland through a total break away from the current Republic of Ghana.

Although the leading figures of the foundation were ordered by a High Court in Ho to sign a bond of good behaviour and desist from their secessionist activities in July 2017, they convened another breakaway conference in the Volta Region on Sunday, which resulted in the arrest of Mr Kudjordjie, who is over 80 years old and the other front liners.

The secessionist leader was flown to Accra and is currently in the custody of the Bureau of National Investigations.

The spokesperson for the group, Mr George Nyakpo told Class News on Monday, 6 May 2019 that the government of Ghana needs to come to terms with the reality that post-independent Ghana is illegally holding on to a trust territory, which is the Western Togoland.
