Bodies of two drowned policemen found in Oda River: The bodies of the two policemen who got drowned in the Oda River at Kobro near Jacobu in the Amansie Central District of the Ashanti region on Wednesday evening have been retrieved.

A search party drawn from the villages along the banks of the river returned this morning with the bodies of the deceased tied to the canoe and dragged through the waters.

They were still in their police uniforms when they were discovered; their police duty rifles were however not found.

Their decomposing bodies have been deposited at the Seventh Day Morgue at Obuasi as police open investigations into the matter.

Contrary to an earlier report by MyNewsGh.com that the two policemen who drowned in the Oda River at Kobro near Jacobu in the Amansie Central District of the Ashanti region had unsuccessfully chased after armed robbers, townsfolk have said they had actually gone to extort illegal miners who have anchored chang fang dredging machines on the river mining gold.

The two, Lance Corporal Stephen Kyeremeh and Amedius Akwesi Boateng were part of a group of four policemen from the Obuasi District Police Command who had allegedly stormed the Apamprama Forest Reserve to chase after some armed robbers upon a distress call that some small scale miners had been attacked at Kobro.

Friday, September 25, 2020 news went widespread to the shock of Ghanaians that several routes to the Volta Region(Mepe-Sege road and the Accra-Ho road) got blocked by members of the different secessionist groups preventing the flow of traffic.

The members of the group were also reported to have attacked the Aveyime and Mepe Police Stations in the North Tongu District of the Volta Region where vehicles and weapons were stolen.

They were believed to have belonged to one of the Western Togoland Group and the Homeland Study Group Foundation organizations.

It appears as though the different groups share the same interest to seek independence of the Volta Region from Ghana as a country on its own.

The members issued a warning to the Ghana Police Service and the military to stay indoors till further notice or surrender peacefully to the Western Togoland Security forces.

The ultimatum issued by the group pointed out that the restoration to Western Togoland statehood, under the leadership of Togbe Yesu Kwabla Edudzi I, is being consolidated.

As such Togbe Yesu is the Chairman of Western Togoland Restoration Front (WTRF), the political wing of the Western Togoland independence struggle.
