Togo’s government has banned a series of planned opposition protests, saying the marches posed a security risk, reports AFP news agency.

A coalition of 14 opposition parties announced earlier this week that they would boycott a parliamentary election planned for 20 December and instead try to stop the electoral process.

The opposition wants constitutional reform to reintroduce a two-term limit for presidents.

Coalition coordinator Brigitte Adjamagbo Johnson told local radio that there are no grounds for the ban and they intend carry on with the protest.
