Their motion of blocking the roads on Friday morning, they explained was section of their agitations for independence from Ghana.
The former Executive Secretary to the Inspector Normal of Law enforcement (IGP), Peter Toobu said he finds it stunning and disgraceful that the Ghana Armed Forces and Ghana Law enforcement Services have not dealt with the secessionist teams.
Talking on Accra FM, he said “From the amount of comprehension of my security placement, from what is occurring in the Volta Area and if listening to Kelvin Taylor’s video, it is appearing that the governing administration is stirring up specific factors in the Volta Area, in any other case, if the instigators of the the latest violence in the Volta Region are actually separatists, the army would have dealt with them in a lot less than a 7 days.”

He included that if the separatist groups are people powering the current violence and skirmishes, “then the Ghana Armed Forces must encounter them bullet for bullet boot for boot for the reason that that is what they carry.”
He said: “When somebody is attacking you with bullets, you don’t go talking…If the authorities claims it will not negotiate with the separatists, then it indicates they know it is a total assault on our sovereignty. So, if it can be a comprehensive attack, then how the army is managing the insurgency is not how it ought to deal with the subject.”
“I’m not suggesting that they should really be violent but what I’m expressing is that if the government understands these secessionist groups are intent on attacking Ghana to disgrace the state, then they should really enable the Ghana Armed Forces to deal with them,” Peter Toobu said.
