The Progressive People’s Party (PPP) says there is a clear weakness in the country’s security architecture.
Their comment comes on the back of recent violent attacks by the Homeland Study Foundation, a seccessionist group.
The group are calling for the independence of Western Togoland and have vowed to go every length to secure that.
In a statement issued by the PPP, the party condemned the “unlawful violence committed by illegal armed groups.”
It further lamented the “inability of leadership to deal forcefully with acts of indiscipline, vandalism and what has come to be termed as vigilantism.”
They also called on President Akufo-Addo to address the nation on what they describe as general insecurity in the country.
According to the party, the President’s address will give confidence to citizens.
In its most recent act of violence, Members of the Homeland Study Foundation on Tuesday, September 29, 2020, attacked the State Transport Corporation (STC) in the Volta Regional capital, Ho, and set ablaze one of its buses
The members also on Friday, September 25, 2020, also blocked major entries into the Volta Region.
This action left travellers to and from the Volta Region, particularly areas such as Tefle, Tsopoli and Juapong stranded.
The group burnt vehicle tyres and took control of two police stations, freeing suspects and taking weapons from the armoury.
