We earlier on reported on the uprising at Juapong by the Western Togoland Group.
It was reported that the group had blocked major roads entries to Volta Region, with car tyre burnt on those roads this dawn.
Aside from that, report has it that three officers from Ghana police service were kidnapped and two shot persons shot as a result of gun fire exchange with the military.
In line with that, Ghana Police has cautioned all commuters of the Accra to Ho, Aveyime, Adidome, Mepe, Akuse, Sogakope, and Aflao roads to be mindful of heavy traffic due to the roadblocks.
A statement released by the Ghana Police Service reads as below:
Good morning Ghana, commuters to and from Accra – Ho – Aveyime – Adidome- Mepe – Akuse – Aflao are likely to experience traffic due to security operations within those areas. Anybody travelling on any of these roads should exercise caution.
BELOW IS THE NARRATIVE OF THE MAN WHO FELL VICTIM
The young man narrating what he went through at the hands of soldiers wrote;
This Nonsense Must Stop!!
So my auntie and I needed to make an emergency trip to Battor in the Volta Region of GHANA. As early as 3:30am (With all the risks traveling at night) we set off from Accra and around 5:30am we got to Sege. We made a left turn towards Battor. About 15mins drive, almost getting to Aveyime, I saw a heavy traffic ahead with ARMED MEN ( this sh!t was intimidating). In the beginning we thought it was robbery😥. Loaded guns were pointed at us ordering us to come down immediately (in fact I nearly pooped 😂)..
The things they were saying in ewe made me realized who they were afterwards (Mile miafe dukor x)m-We are taking our land) – The Western Togoland🤦🏾♂️. The experience wasn’t a nice one at all… What’s going?
Because I could speak ewe especially the Tongu, they were gentle and a little friendly with me. I played the nice guy and that allowed me take these videos.
Now there was this man whose car was in front of us who spoke twi.. He was pleading with them calling of the guys “my brother”… The response that came from the armed guy was “Today de3 you know ewes are your brothers?” —— Do you see that? This thing must stop, tribalism and hate is brewing and it’s not safe at all…..
I managed to find another route through Dove to Battor and that one errr… A story for another day…
our leaders must act fast! This is not looking friendly at all….
