The Togo Citizens Stand Up (Front Citoyen Togo Debout [FCTD]) opposition movement is slated to hold a demonstration in Lomé on Saturday, May 4. The political rally will reportedly take place at the Akassimé ground in Hanoukopé district beginning at 14:30 (local time).
A heightened security presence and traffic disruptions are likely near the demonstration. Clashes between supporters and security forces cannot be ruled out.
Individuals in Lomé are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests as a precaution, anticipate a heightened security presence and localized transportation disruptions, and refrain from discussing domestic political issues in public.
