The Late Papavi Hogbedetor

Leader of the Homeland Study Group Foundation (HSGF), Charles Komi Kudzordzi, popularly known as Papavi Hogbedetor, is reportedly dead.

He was 87.

Family sources told the Ghana News Agency (GNA) Mr Kudzordzi died in the late hours of Friday, October 15, 2021, at a hospital  in the Volta Region.

Until his demise, Papavi Hogbedetor was  championing the separation of the “Western Togoland”  from Ghana through his successionist group, the Homeland Study Group Foundation.

After many failed attempts, he unsuccessfully declared independence for “Western Togoland” and was arrested for the first time and charged with treason.

Mr Kudjordji was arrested again for similar offences, airlifted from Ho to Accra and charged for treason with some of his accomplices.

He was again granted bail due to old age and after his release, heard days later declaring independence for Western Togoland and had since gone into hiding till information on his death.

He was born on April 7, 1934.
