This is probably too easy but I am too lazy at the moment to think about a more complicated question:

What is the name of the lake in German Southwest in which the German Schutztruppe dumped their weapons during ww1?

Let me continue with a question.

It is being searched for: The name of a village in the former German Colony Togo, which was located
as the border station on the largest river and, still under the same name belongs nowadays to Ghana.

Question to abstract? Maybe with a poke?

The locality was near the river Volta, 1894 founded as one of the, later eight administrative districts in the,
at that time German Colony Togo. Both parts of the double name started with the tenth letter of the alphabet. ( - :idea: - )
