Togbe Afede XIV sues Ghana army for breach of privacy

The Ghana army has been sued by one of the most powerful chiefs in the Volta region following what he described as a breach of privacy.

The Agbogbomefia of the Asogli state of the Volta Region, Togbe Afede XIV, says the construction of a 6-storey building near his private residence has destroyed his security lights.

Togbe Afede, who doubles as the president of the house of chiefs, has filed a suit in the human rights court pleading for the structure to be demolished.

“… I am again advised by Counsel and I verily believe same to be true that privacy is a foundation bedrock of right on which other human rights are built, and that if the Respondents are not restrained, the Applicant’s [Togbe Afede’s] rights would be greatly violated,” the suit read.

Meanwhile, government is expected to make an official statement on this development.
