Earlier today at 2 am, an intercity STC minibus was set ablaze by some people believed to be members of the Western Togoland Secessionist group at the STC yard in the Volta region of Ghana, Ho to be precise, amidst firing of gunshots and other reported violent acts.
It was also reported that some drivers spending the night at the bus terminal were attacked.
Homeland Study Group Foundation (HSGF), an organisation advocating for the right of self-determination of the people of Western Togoland have had a press release with regards to the attack on the STC yard in Ho.
“We the front line defenders of the Rights of the citizens of Western Togoland, The HSGF, and all it’s various chapters and branches had no hands in the burning of the vehicles of the STC in Ho last night. We wish to draw the attention of the general public that the sudden spark of violence in our land is seriously against our working documents over the years and urge the government of Ghana to call his security operatives to order and release our people in detentions for several months now.
We are beginning to have the feeling that some elements probably in the political landscape and looking at the periods in which we are might be perpetrating violence to smear our peaceful campaign.
We said it time without numbers that the campaign for our rights of citizenship which is being questioned continuously by some section of Ghanaians will be without violence.
Our chairman has never missed his word about peaceful activism any time he has the opportunity to speak to the world.
We seriously condemn this violence in our land!
