Hours after secessionists launched an attack on the Aveyime and Mepe Police stations in the North Tongu District of the Volta Region; social media has been buzzing with comments.
The men believed to be members of the Western Togoland secession group on Friday forcibly took over both stations simultaneously, overpowered the police officers, broke into the armoury, and made away with all the weapons.
Meanwhile, citizens have taken to twitter to express concerns on the matter.
This Western Togoland thing is getting out of hand. I don’t see any oppression in that part of the country to warrant this need for secession.— Attah Nii (@Mallamatah) September 25, 2020
But if a political party is also behind it, they should take a cue from Cersei Lannister’s plight. Game of thrones lovers can relate.
It’s clear that the Western Togoland secessionist group have a reliable source of funding, as they continue their activities.— Maiestas Ⓜ️ (@Ebenezer_Peegah) September 25, 2020

The people are crying to be handed over the Western Togoland because of neglect and Actions of this government by seeing some people and tribe as more Ghanaians than other.
