April 2023 | State of emergency in northern region extended

A state of emergency in the region of Savanes in the north of Togo has been extended for another year by the legislature. The state of emergency was first declared by President Faure Gnassingbé in June 2022 in response to violence perpetrated by jihadist groups operating out of Burkina Faso. Such attacks have continued over the last year. The state of emergency aims to preserve the integrity and security of the national territory and allows the military and police to restrict movement and assembly, and to question individuals who they believe to present a security threat.
