The Chiefs and People of the Gbi Traditional Area in the Hohoe Municipality of the Volta Region have condemned recent attacks orchestrated by secessionist group, Homeland Study Foundation in some parts of the Volta Region.

They have also dissociated themselves from the activities of the group, describing them as illegal and a threat to the development and peace of the Volta Region.

Members of the Homeland Study Group have been cited by government as being behind attacks on the Aveyime Police Station and blockade of major roads that lead to the Volta Region on Friday.

At a News Conference in Hohoe, Chief of GbiAbansi, Togbe Adzimah who is Spokesperson for the Gbi Traditional Council, warned the group not to include the area in its so-called Western Togoland territory nor attempt to perpetuate its acts of illegality and vandalism in any Gbi community.

He said Gbi Traditional Area has been and will always be part of the Sovereign State of Ghana and as such its citizens shall pay allegiance to the government of Ghana.

In a related development, the Paramount Chief of Alavanyo Traditional Area, Togbega Tsedze Atakora has also condemned an attack on its native, ACP Dennis Fiakpoe by the secessionist group during last Friday’s raid.

ACP Fiakpoe who is the Divisional Police Commander at Sogakope is reported to have sustained various degrees of injury when the group hijacked the Aveyime Police Station.

Addressing the media at Alavanyo in the Hohoe Municipality, Togbega Atakora cautioned members of the secessionist group not to drag the area into their Western Togoland movement or use Alavanyo in its territory nor attempt to perpetuate its acts of illegality and vandalism in any Gbi community.

He said Alavanyo has suffered a lot from destabilisation due to conflict with its neighbour, and the chiefs and people are working towards finding lasting solutions to restore peace and development to the area.

The Chiefs of Alavanyo and Gbi Traditional Areas warned their people against joining the secessionist group. They commended government for its swift response to quell last Friday’s attacks and called on the security agencies to beef their security network to prevent future attacks.
