Some armed men believed to be members of the Western Togoland secession group have reportedly attacked the Aveyime and Mepe Police Stations in the North Tongu District of the Volta Region.
“They naked the police officers on duty, took their weapons, and locked them in the cells before breaking into the armoury,” said an eye witness.
The group at Mepe after hoisting a Western Togoland flag joined their colleagues at the Aveyime Police Station, seized two police vehicles, and injured an officer.
Eye witnessed accounts detailed that one of the vehicles was driven away by the armed men.
The group numbering about 50 reportedly made of locals from Mepe, Aveyime, Battor, and surrounding communities, were later chanting war songs and jubilating their successful operations.
