Three members of the Homeland Study Group Foundation (HSGF), identified as Asiana Agbenu, Divine Odonkor and Charles Kormi Kudjordjie were earlier arrested by the police for seeking to create a new country from Ghana by declaring the Volta Region and some parts of the Northern and Upper East regions as the Western Togoland State.

The aforementioned trio were subsequently charged with treason at a Ho Magistrate court.
