The DCE of Ellembelle, Kwasi Bonzo, had reported to the Divisional Police Commander ACP Dodzi Hlordzi about an illegal mining operation on the land of Nkroful Agriculture Senior High School. He requested that officers be sent to the site to clamp down on the activity. However, ACP Dodzi Hlordzi informed him that there were no available personnel for the operation.
Later that day, a member of the District Small Scale Mining Committee called Kwasi Bonzo and informed him that two brand new excavators were missing. When asked why the District Mining Committee and National Intelligence Bureau team could not immobilize the machines, he explained that no mechanic was willing to help.
However, ACP Dodzi Hlordzi has debunked the allegations made by Kwasi Bonzo, stating that there is no truth to his claims. He added that there were no excavators in their possession. This contradicts the earlier reports by Kwasi Bonzo about the missing excavators.
It is unclear what exactly happened to the excavators, but the police have denied any involvement. The situation highlights the ongoing issue of illegal mining in Ghana, which has caused significant environmental damage and social unrest. It is important for all parties involved to work together to combat this problem and protect the country’s natural resources.
