"The people who were on that coach together will forever be joined by a special bond - we are all brothers.
"I will always have the team and the people of Togo close to my heart and wish them every success in the challenges that they will face in the future."
The Togo team were attacked by gunmen as they made their way from a training camp in the Republic of Congo to in Cabinda City, Angola on 8 January.
Two Togolese officials were killed in the attack, which prompted the Togolese government to pull their country out of the event.
That intervention led to Togo being handed a four-year ban from competing in the competition, a sanction over which they are currently embroiled in an appeal process.
The attack inevitably overshadowed the start of the Cup of Nations - a showpiece event for both Angola, recovering from years of war, and African football ahead of the World Cup in June, which the continent is hosting for the first time.
