Lome - Togo's government says it will fight the football team's suspension from the next two editions of the African Cup of Nations following its withdrawal from last month's tournament.
Spokesperson Pascal Bodjona described the ban as "insulting" late Sunday. He did not say what action Togo would take.
Bodjona said the team asked to come home after the January 8 bus attack in Angola that killed a coach, a team spokesperson and a driver two days before the start of the tournament.
However, Togo captain Emmanuel Adebayor said the team wanted to stay for the tournament but were ordered home.
A separatist group in Angola claimed responsibility for the attack.
