The separatist movement, Western Togoland on Friday mounted a roadblock in Juapong, a town in the North Tongu District of the Volta Region.
The group further claims to have captured 3 police personnel after attacking the Aveyime and Mepe Police Stations.
“We are seeking independence of our great motherland,” one of the separatists who failed to identify himself told Accra-based Joy FM.
“It’s a critical security situation we’re dealing with right now. We’re coordinating activities of the security services,” the Volta Regional Minister, Dr. Archibald Letsa said.
He assured that within an hour or two the “situation will be brought under control.”
