Mr Ablakwa who was reacting to the Friday incident in a Facebook post also indicated that two pick-up trucks have been retrieved.
"I spent the day assessing fall outs from the bloody incursion in my beloved constituency. My deepest condolences once more to all of us for the lives lost.
I also paid a visit to the Battor Catholic Hospital to personally convey our gratitude to the doctors and nurses for saving the lives of the injured. Glad to hear that the five police personnel and two other civilians who suffered injuries are responding to treatment.
It is good progress to note that the two pickup trucks have been retrieved though I am exceedingly frightened that the cache of weapons taken away from the two police stations in Aveyime and Mepe have still not been located. We can’t afford to have all those weapons in the wrong hands", he stated.
The whole country was thrown into a state of shock when a group of hooligans identified as Western Togoland Restoration Front took over the Battor Police station after successfully overpowering the police. The group also blocked two major roads in the Volta Region living commuters stranded.
