The Volta Regional Police command on Wednesday morning rounded up some supporters of the separatist movement, the Homeland Study Group Foundation (HSGF) for ‘unlawful assembly.’
The suspects numbering 21 were arrested at the premises of Global FM in Ho, where they allegedly converged to embark on a demonstration against the arrest of some of their leaders, who declared independence from Ghana last month.
According to a release signed by the Public Relations officer of the Regional Police Command, Corporal Prince Dogbatse, the suspects which includes a woman and were aged between 26 and 70 years, had come from various locations within and outside the region such as Anlo Afiadenyigba, Volo, Dambai, Accra and Obuasi.
The rest were Hohoe, Mafi Adidome, Abotoase, Adaklu, Ehi, Botoku, , Liati, Aborlorve, Saviefe, Dededo, Weta, Adutor, Fodzoku, Battor, Hohoe and Atiavi.
“The arrest follows intelligence that member of HSGF were charged to demonstrate against the judicial process involving the trial of their seven members for treason felony,” the statement added and further cautioned the group that their “continuous agitation was unlawful and a recipe for a breach of the peace in the country.”
