The Inspector-General of Police, Mr James Oppong-Boanuh, has declared the 85-year-old leader of the Homeland Study Group Foundation (HSGF) wanted for declaring the Volta Region independent of Ghana a few months ago.
The police chief has asked Mr Charles Kormi Kudzordzi (Papavi Hogbedetor) and one Hope Mortey to report themselves to the nearest police station.
The IGP told journalists when he engaged them that: “The group is led by one Charles Kormi Kudzordzi alias Papavi, who has been on the run since he purportedly declared independence for the Western Togoland. He is currently being pursued by security agencies. He and Hope Mortey are declared wanted and are to report to the nearest police station. The public is enjoined to volunteer information about their whereabouts.”
The group independence declaration of the region as Western Togoland was made at a public gathering of its adherents at the premises of the former Unity Rural Bank, which is a few metres away from the Ho Police Training school.
The secessionist declaration was broadcast live on Facebook.
