Later in September Ghanaian authorities recorded more than 300 hundred Togolese fled from Mango in the Northern part of Togo following the military repression to find refuge in Ghana.
According to the chief of Chereponi district in Tamalé Mr Tahiru Abdul Razak, the Togolese refugees ‘’had been beaten up, and they are afraid of being killed” He indicated having shared some food, mats, blankets and mosquito nets to the refugees.
Holding a press conference on Wednesday 4th of October, Mr Yark Damehene, the Togolese Minister of Security and Civil Protection invited the Togolese refugees in Ghana to return home because ‘’nothing is worth living at home. School has resumed and children must go to school (…)’’
He concluded that the law will only deal with those who had committed any reprehensible acts.
