Togo suffers a second terrorist attack in the North

A new terrorist attack took place in the north of Togo, at the operational outpost of Kpinkankandi in the canton of Koundjouaré (prefecture Kpendjal), we learned from sources this Wednesday.

Contacted by the media, the Togolese Ministry of Security and Defence confirmed the new attack that took place on the night of May 10 to 11, but did not give details about what happened.

The ministry however promised to journalists, to communicate these details as soon as the information will be gathered.

According to some other sources, 8 soldiers were killed, while more than a dozen were injured.

As a reminder, in February, the inhabitants of a village in this Kpendjal Prefecture, had been ordered to leave under threat of reprisals. Many began to leave the area before the intervention of security forces.

Togo’s Defense and Security Forces have been conducting an operation called “Operation Koundjouaré” for some years in this northern city.

Togo-Yacoubou Moutawakilou, condamné à mort et exécuté pour son engagement pour le Togo

Depuis ce triste jour du 13 janvier 1963 où Sylvanius Olympio fut assassiné, tous ceux qui ont essayé d´affronter la dictature en se mettant sur son chemin, furent impitoyablement éliminés. La liste de tous ces martyrs, assassinés d´une façon ou d´une autre, est longue. Les nombreuses tentatives depuis le début des années ´90 pour humaniser le pouvoir d´état et le rendre aux Togolais, n´ont pas pu résister à la terreur militaire, seule légitimité de la dictature du père en fils.
