Some residents of the Volta Region have expressed their doubts about the Western Togoland secessionists incident that occurred yesterday, accusing the government of masterminding the incident for political purposes.
Members of the Volta separatist, the Homeland Study Group Foundation (HSGF) on Friday dawn blocked some roads in the Volta Region of Ghana as a means to express their agitation for independence from Ghana.
The group was also reported to have attacked two police stations in the North Tongu Constituency, stripping policemen on duty naked, and making away with weapons.
However, speaking to Samuel Eshun on the Happy Morning Show on the issue, Happy FM’s Volta Regional correspondent, Ivan Midorse, disclosed that some residents with “political eye” are of the view that the ruling government is involved in this action to prevent the people in the Volta Region from voting in this year’s election.
Meanwhile, Ivan notes that residents who are in support of the road blockage and are in jubilation are more than those who are against the movement.
“Those who are in support of the movement are actually happy it is happening but those who are not in support of it are not happy about what is happening. The people who are in support of this are probably more than those who are against it”, he added.
