The fight for Oti region is getting tougher by the day as one Mr. Denutsui John Collins received his share of the pain and aggression the people of the Volta region went through.
The anti campaigner who was on his usual campaign visited some communities in the Brong Ahafo region and on his return to visit Nkwanta got stranded at Dambai due to unavailability of means of transport.
According to him, his effort to get a car or motor bike to Nkwanta proved futile and he decided to sit with the Okada riders at the Dambai new station entrance for a while.
According to him, some of the Okada guys asked of his mission and he explained to them that he is a Western Togoland campaigner.
Later, a gentleman approached him and asked whether he is the one campaigning against the creation of the region and after a lengthy argument, he was asked to report to the Chief’s Palace which he refused.
Heavily built guys totaling about ten according to him tried to force him to the Chief’s palace and when he resisted, he was attacked.
An eye witness rushed to Torgbe Dordoe, the Ewe Chief of Chonke Traditional Area but resides at the Dambai Lakeside. The chief later sent some of his kingmakers to rescue him.
According to one Jacob, one of the fighters for the creation of Oti Region, it was him alone who laid hands on him when ‘he was proving stubborn’.
“We will beat any one who comes to this side of the region to campaign against the creation of the region if possible, we will kill that person…,” he threatened.
The man was later sent to the E.P CLINIC in Dambai where he received treatment.
