The Deputy Minister admits that government had earlier been lenient with them in view of the age of the leader but is optimistic they would be dealt with in accordance with the law this time around.

The Ho District Court has however ordered the arrest of the leader of the Homeland Study Group Foundation (HSGF), Charles Kwame Kudzodzi and two others over their unlawful declaration of parts of the Volta Region as a sovereign state.

This was after eleven were arrested and 5 other members of the group were put before court for taking part in the activity.
