Galamseyers Attack Chief For Fighting Illegal Mining

Story: Kofi Michel

A group of illegal miners at Anyinam in the Atiwa East District in Eastern Region have marauded the house of the “Tufuhene” Nana Darko of the Anyinam Traditional Council.

The mob led by Kofi Asamoah, popularly known as ‘Kofi Bra’ had accused their Sub-chief of been behind every move against their work as galamseyers in the Area.

Kofi Bra and his boys broke almost every glass window in the Nana’s 5-bedroom house including other properties they went across in and around the house.

Nana Darko was accused by the illegal miners for liaising with the Police and other security forces to stop galamsey; which has been one of their major source of employment since their grandparents’ era.

This paper gathered that it was not the first time the chief had suffered indiscipline in the hands of the rascals but was the second time.

 Nana Darko has since reported the incidence to the Anyinam Police Station for further investigation and prosecution.

It would be recalled last week, there was a clash between these illegal miners and the residents of Anyinam which resulted in one being arrested.
