There have been sporadic marches and protests in Lome and around the country since August 2017, at least 2 people were killed during demonstrations in Lomé over demands to restore the 1992 constitution and a number of arrests were made.

Tensions remain heightened and further marches and protests, by supporters of the government and opposition are likely. You should remain vigilant during these times, avoid crowds and demonstrations and monitor local media. See Safety and security
