Very disturbing news from Volta. The Western Togoland Secessionist group are hijacking some major routes in the region; they would not allow people in or out of the region. I Understand there is gridlock on the Accra Sogakope route coz they have blocked the road. They have seized a DCE’s pickup and terrorizing people in the region.
