Togo (i/ˈtoʊɡoʊ/), officially the Togolese Republic (French:République Togolaise), is a country in West Africa bordered by Ghana to the west, Benin to the east and Burkina Faso to the north. It extends south to the Gulf of Guinea, where its capitalLomé is located. Togo covers 57,000 square kilometres (22,000sqmi), making it one of the smallest countries in Africa, with a population of approximately 7.5 million.
From the 11th to the 16th century, various tribes entered the region from all directions. From the 16th century to the 18th century, the coastal region was a major trading center for Europeans in search of slaves, earning Togo and the surrounding region the name "The Slave Coast". In 1884, Germany declared Togoland a protectorate. After World War I, rule over Togo was transferred to France. Togo gained its independence from France in 1960.
Commander Ahiamale cited incidents which took place in Togo where more than 11 officers were neutralized in June, 2022, then Po in Burkina, where a group of violent extremists were raided by the military killing six including a civilian.
