Five Ghanaians who were arrested by the Togolese security in a swoop at Gbadaag, a town along the Ghana/Togo border, over the alleged disruption of a voter registration have been languishing in a Togolese prison for the past three months without trial.
Reliable source told newsmen that the suspects, who are in prison in Dapango in the Northern part of Togo, were critically ill with no medical care.
The five were picked up, together with some Togolese, at the market at Gbadaag on October 20, 2018 after some unknown persons had disrupted a Togolese electoral registration exercise near the market.
Report indicates that the security personnel who were in search of the perpetrators stormed the market and rounded up many people, including the five Ghanaians from the Bunkurugu District in the Northern Region who had gone there to trade.
A relative of one of the suspects, Godwin Fuak confirmed the detention of the suspect.
He gave their names as Duak Bitian, Kombat Nini Bjobin, Duut Dajeb, Kombian Jaben and Laar Mobong.
According to him the five who lived near the border, had gone to the market to trade and were resting at a pito joint when the armed security personnel stormed the market with three vehicles and rounded them up.
