The Heve Division is led by the Ngogbefia, Togbe Anikpi III, the vanguard chief. The administrative set-up of Ho also defines the security and military structure, which was quite relevant in the olden days of inter-tribal warfare.
The Heve Division therefore performed the traditional military function of spying on the enemy and providing intelligence for the main army divisions in times of war. During peacetime, the role of the Heve people involved providing leadership in the identification and recommendation of development projects, which would facilitate the progress of the community. Their portion of a customarily slaughtered animal is called the Anyinor.
