Family of slain Kwabeng miners want postmortem fast tracked

Family of the deceased persons found in Kwabeng in the Eastern Region over the weekend want post-mortem on the bodies fast tracked to ascertain what caused their deaths.

The bodies of the four were retrieved from a mining pit by a search team Sunday August 14,2017.

The remains of the four have since been deposited at the Police Hospital morgue for autopsy, while investigations continue, a preliminary report on the incident said.

Residents allege that the four were brutalized to death by the operation Vanguard taskforce.

A resident at Kwabeng popularly known as Supa tells Kasapa News, the four were hired to a mining site at Kukuso, a community near Kwabeng to tow away some mining equipment on Saturday around 7pm, however they did not return raising suspicion among family and friends.

According to him, a search found the bodies of the deceased in a very shallow river and detected bruises, cuts and mark of assaults on their bodies indicating they have been beaten to death by the Military personnel operating in the area under Operation Vanguard taskforce.

But the Operation Vanguard task force has rejected claims suggesting its men were responsible for the death the four persons.

However, brother of the deceased Abdul Hamid says they are currently awaiting the autopsy results.
