A group of assailants suspected to be members of separatist group Western Togoland Restoration Front went on rampage around midnight Monday at the STC Yard in Ho, 3news.com has gathered.
Numbering about 10, these armed men beat up a driver and attacked about four buses, setting one completely ablaze and one partially ablaze.
A Ho-based journalist, Richard Asiedu, told Alfred Ocansey on 3FM’s Sunrise on Tuesday that the group marched to the bus terminal from nowhere to stage their attack, firing warning shots and beating up a driver amid the mayhem.
The military have since taken over the bus station, he said.
This comes barely four days after members of secessionist group Western Togoland Restoration Front mounted roadblocks in the Volta Region and attacked some sensitive state installations in a bid to declare independence.
Their activities were, however, quelled by a joint security force with 35 of them arrested and airlifted to Accra.
Thirty-one of them have been remanded.
The group attacked police stations in Aveyime and Mepe and made away with weapons from the armoury.
Minister of Information Kojo Oppong Nkrumah had hinted on TV3‘s New Day on Monday that there are outstanding threats from this group.
He, however, assured that the security agencies are in firm grip of the situation and the perpetrators will be dealt with.
