Togo : 44 opposition supporters released
Tens of thousands of protesters in the streets of Lomé

Arrested as part of the protests of the main coalition of the Togolese opposition, 44 people were released, officials said Thursday.

The government announced Wednesday evening in a statement of the Council of Ministers, their release, without specifying if they were part of the detainees arrested in the context of the demonstrations, which shake the country of West Africa since August 2017.

Among those released are members of the Nubueke Movement, a very active association in Togo.

Since mid-2017, Togo is the scene of sometimes massive demonstrations of the coalition of 14 political parties of the opposition (C-14), who had boycotted the legislative, denouncing “irregularities” in its preparation.
