Galamsey taskforce deny shooting illegal miner at Sefwi

The anti-galamsey task force known as Operation Vanguard (OV) has denied shooting a miner at Sefwi-Ankra in the Juaboso District of the Western Region as their operations heat up.



It was reported that another miner has allegedly been shot dead by members of government’s anti-galamsey task force at Sefwi-Ankra.

The deceased, Charles Samuels and three others were at a mining site in the forest when three soldiers from the task force allegedly ambushed and opened fire on them.

According to one of the miners who escaped, the soldiers, upon seeing them on the site fired without warning, killing Mr Samuels in the process.

He indicated that, one soldier only said they were stubborn before they opened fire.

The alleged escapee also said the soldiers set mining equipment at the site ablaze and cannot tell what has become of the body of the deceased as he was killed while escaping.

But Commander of Operation Vanguard, Col. William Agyapong says some elements deliberately want to demoralize the task force but they are focused and not responsible for shooting in the area.

According to Col. Agyapong, they are embarking on the operations with all the cautiousness and professionalism.

The latest incident comes a week after the task force shot and killed another alleged illegal small-scale miner at Anyimadukrom in the Obuasi municipality.
