The Ghana Police Service says it has begun investigations into the alleged attack on the Ho STC by persons believed to be members of the Western Togoland secessionist group.
The Service said preliminary investigations have revealed that 11 vehicles were parked at the scene at the time of the attack. One bus was completely burnt with another slightly burnt.
“The arrival of police and Fire Service personnel saved the situation,” they said.
An eyewitness told Joy News that in the early hours of Tuesday, at about 02:00 am, four men, suspected to be members of the Western Togoland separatist group stormed the Ho STC.
The assailants are reported to have asked for the keys to all the vehicles parked there and started to set two minibuses ablaze when the drivers did not produce the keys.
The police said it took their intervention and that of the Fire Service to calm the situation.
Though the identities of the men who attacked the company are yet to be known, the appearance of a “Western Togoland” flag at the scene, has raised suspicion that the act was perpetrated by its members.
The police, however, is urging calm in the Region as they commence investigations into the matter.
The Service further urged the public to volunteer information to them and security services to facilitate investigations.
