A Ho Magistrate court has referred the case involving three persons clamouring for a secession of the Volta Region to a higher court for redress.
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.
However, having being arraigned before the court on Thursday, the judge decided to strike out the case, admitting it was beyond the jurisdiction.
The judge further advised that the case be referred to a higher court for redress.
