Speaking to Class Fm’s correspondent in the Volta Region, the girl Agbolosu Afi explained that though she lives in Ghana, she schools in neighboring Togo.

On her way to School on Monday 29th June 2020, some officers of the Ghana immigration and military stopped her together with her brother who was accompanying her from crossing to Togo.

According to the girl, the officers didn’t hesitate to whip her with their belts.

She said ever since High School she attends in Lomé, Togo reopened school, commuting from Denu (Ghana) to Lomé (Togo) has become difficult with the closure of Ghana’s border and the presence of the military has worsened the case.
