Over 3,500 Ghanaian refugees have crossed over from Nandom province of northern Ghana into Togo following ethnic clashes and land disputes.
The victims, mainly women and children have been camped in temporary shelter camps in Northern Togo. They complained about several attacks at home which have become a regular occurrence in recent years.
On a visit to the camp, Togo's Security Minister, Mohammed Atcha Titikpina sympathised with the displaced victims and promised to support with ‘emergency relief supplies, security, feeding, clothing and temporary rehabilitation structures'.
The land disputes in Northern Ghana which have spanned for over 15 years, have resulted in the deaths of 1,000 people and the displacement of another 150,000.
