The Police have granted bail to 15 out of the 17 members of the Homeland Study Group Foundation who were arrested a week ago.

Each of the suspects was granted a police inquiry bail following preliminary investigation and screening.

The 66 Artillery Regiment of the Ghana Army based in the Volta Region arrested the suspects in two separate operations.

These arrests followed the emergence of photos and videos on social media showing supposed military training for some members of the separatist group.

Director-General of Police Criminal Investigation Departement (CID), COP Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo-Danquah addressed the media , saying

“We have seven suspects who are before the court in Ho. 10 people are before the court in the Upper West Region. The 15 we arrested have been granted police inquiry bail.  One suspect who was found to be connected with the Home state is currently on his way to Kwahu.  I think by the time he gets there, the court would have closed so we will ensure he is put before court on Friday.”
