Opposition supporters in Togo are defying government restrictions on protests to demand the President's resignation.

Opposition supporters in Togo are defying government restrictions on protests to demand the president's resignation.

They want to see constitutional reforms introduced, including a two-term limit for presidents.

While the government has agreed to bring in the rule, the opposition is skeptical about whether it will be applied retrospectively.

They suspect President Faure Gnassingbe will be allowed to run for office twice more.
