The Military has invaded and arrested 21 trainees at the training camp of ‘secessionist’ at Kpevedue and Fievue, a twin community on the Ghana-Togo border in the Ketu North Municipality of the Volta Region.
The arrested persons aged between 20 and 30 included one female and 20 males, coming from different parts of the country.
The leader absconded upon sensing danger when the military team invaded the camp at about 3 am on Monday.
According to the military, the camp is believed to be operated by the Homeland Study Group Foundation, a secessionist group fighting for the independence of the then Western Togoland from Ghana.
Upon interrogation, the arrested persons confessed they were deceived to be enlisted into the Military and charged an entrance fee of ¢800.00, only to be brought to the said location for training.
The military believes the mind behind the camp and training of these people might have some military background considering the sighting and set up of the camp.
It has been confirmed that the trainees going through some paramilitary training have been there for about eight days.
Currently, they have been airlifted to Accra and would be handed over to the police for further investigations.
