Three out of the seven members of Homeland Study Group Foundation who were charged with treason felony appeared before the court presided over by His Lordship, Justice Charles Agbevor.

Martin Asiamah Agbenu, 57, Divine Odonkor, 65 and Charles Kormi Kudjordji, 78, the leader of the group were arrested by the Volta Regional Police Command for attempting to declare Western Togoland independent from Ghana on May 9, 2017.

The court was packed today with a large crowd of supporters but were however disappointed the case has been adjourned to tomorrow. Some of the supporters who came from outside Ho told Awake News they have resolved to stay over in Ho to witness the decision of the court tomorrow.

Some supporters also said they felt that it was because government does not want to be embarrassed to see a tumultuous jubilant of supporters’ response that was why they decided to drive them away before reading out the Attorney General’s decision tomorrow. But, they will stay over at all cost to witness the case.

The crow at the road to the court

Prosecutor asked for adjournment on the grounds of the absence of the defence lawyer. The judge was not pleased so he told him (the Prosecutor) to read the decision of the Attorney General. But the Prosecutor however insisted that it will be better to read the Attorney General’s decision in the presence of the defence lawyer.

Our correspondent will be in court tomorrow and bring you upto date on the proceedings.
