Following the declaration of their independence last Sunday, MyNewsGh.com has gathered that the group has flouted the bail conditions and maybe taken into police custody based on a directive from the courts.
Sources revealed to this portal that strong evidence from various security agencies have been pieced together to build a good docket for the members of the Separatist group to be charged.
The Homeland Study Group Foundation declared independence for the Volta, and parts of the Northern, North Eastern and Upper East Regions after its meeting held in Ho last Sunday.
However, these areas appear to have some establishments that belong to Ghana but the new group reveals that it will speak with authorities in Ghana to chart a new path on the latest development.
But Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah in a statement has warned that government will deal with them in accordance with the law.
