Five members of the outlawed separatist Western Togoland Restoration Front (WTRF) were each given five years in prison and hard labor by a court in Ghana’s capital Accra on Tuesday.

They were apprehended in 2020 for breaking into a police station, releasing prisoners, and obstructing highways to keep Ghanaians from traveling to the eastern Volta Region.

The five were accused of acting in a way that was “premeditated, aggravating, and an affront to the national security, sovereignty, and territorial integrity of the country,” according to the court.

Also, they received a term for being members of WTRF, an outlawed organization that promoted the secession of Ghana’s Volta and Oti Regions.
