“…given the magnitude of actions of that the bandits undertook this morning, one would expect that they ought to at least should have had some and taken preemptive steps to abort the actions that were taken this morning. The attempted succession by the so-called Western Togoland bandits is not something new.”

“From time to time, they have shown signs that they are capable of fomenting trouble in the Volta Region and parts of the Oti Region. The question is what has the government’s response been,” he asked.

“The government’s response has been knee-jerk and apologetic. I don’t know how they have dealt with the issue so far. At some point, they made some arrests and mounted some prosecution but we don’t know the outcome those prosecutions.”

“If we allow the situation to continue as we are seeing, we will get to a place where it will be too late to act.”

“Intelligence must try to be as close to incidence as close as possible. So far as I have tried to suggest, it doesn’t look like our intelligence has been that proactive. So indeed we don’t know what may happen tomorrow,” he said.
