STC bus attacked by alleged secessionist group, drivers beaten, bus burnt

As indicated by a Citi News report, the episode which happened at 12 PM on Monday, September 28, included the individuals from the gathering discharging shots before continuing to whip the drivers. 


There is presently a substantial security presence at the scene. 


This most recent occurrence comes only days after somewhere in the range of 31 presumes asserted to be secessionists were remanded by an Accra Circuit Court into BNI guardianship for about fourteen days. 


They are confronting five temporary charges including intrigue to go to a restricted gathering, unlawful assembling and revolting. 


They allegedly argued not liable when they showed up under the watchful eye of the Accra Circuit Court Two on Monday September 28. 


They are being indicted on the temporary charges of scheme to go to a gathering of a precluded association; unlawful get-together; gathering under a restricted name and association; and revolting. 


The indictment, driven by ASP Sylvester Asare, requested that the court remand the denounced people into authority to consider further examinations concerning the Friday occurrence. 


He contended that the police were constrained by law to introduce the blamed under the watchful eye of the court knowing very well that the court needed purview since the occurrence happened in the Volta locale. 


The Aveyime and Mepe police headquarters in the North Tongu District of the Volta Region were in the early long stretches of Friday, September 25, attacked by some furnished individuals from a supposed secessionist gathering. 


The gathering, as indicated by reports, persuasively took over both police headquarters all the while, overwhelmed the cops working, broke into the police arsenal and carried off all the weapons having a place with the police. 


"They stripped the cops working, took their weapons, and secured them in the cells before breaking into the ordnance," an observer expressed. 


In a broadly coursed video accessible to GhanaWeb, the lawbreakers, in the wake of assaulting the police headquarters, were seen driving a police watch vehicle. 


The vehicle was completely involved by criminals holding firearms, reciting war tunes and jubilating. 


"We're free… we're free always," the gathering, numbering around 50, could be heard yelling.
