The Akyemansa district security council led by DCE Paul Asamoah have recently conducted raids to stop illegal mining on water bodies.
The DCE recently embarked on ‘operation burn all chanfans on river bodies in the Akyemansa district which yielded positive results in the first phase of the operation.
In an interview with Akyem Aboabo based radio station Ahenkan FM, the DCE confirmed to Obuoba Ofori Amanfo on “Maakye” morning show that, two illegal miners were arrested when they attempted to bribe the him and negotiated a stop of further raids on their illegal operations.
In their fearless and relentless quest to continue with the illicit mining act of depleting the water bodies, the illegal miners then arranged a meeting with the DCE to compromise him.
When the DCE picked intelligence about their moves, he arranged a standby security and agreed to meet them at his office where the bribe givers came with two thousand five hundred cedis (2,500) and they were immediately arrested by the police command which they will soon be arraigned before court for prosecution.
