Five Chinese galamseyers arrested at Jacobu

Forestry Commission Taskforce in collaboration with the Military have arrested five Chinese Miners who are engaged in illegal mining at Oda Forest at Bepotenten a suburb of Jacobu in the Amansie Central District in the Ashanti region.

It will be recalled that Chiefs in the Amansie Central District have complained about ongoing Galamsey activities in the District despite the ban on Galamsey.

The Chiefs accused the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Chairman Wontumi and the CEO of Forestry Commission Sir John of being behind the foreigners engaging in galamsey.

Abusua Fm’ Osei Kwadwo reported that equipment belonging to the miners have been seized by the Taskforce.

The miners are behind bars at Bekwai Police Station and will be arraigned before court on Monday.
