Operation Vanguard: 311 illegal miners arrested nationwide

Some of the arrested ‘galamseyers’

Three Hundred and eleven (311) illegal miners have been arrested by the Operation Vanguard taskforce since the unit was tasked to clamp down on activities of galamseyers across the nation.

This was disclosed by the Commander of the Operation Vanguard, Col Williams Agyapong, after members of the taskforce paid a courtesy call on the Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II at the Manhyia Palace.

Col Williams Agyapong revealed that 71 galamseyers have been arrested in the Ashanti region alone.

He added that six female miners who were arrested at Akrokeri in the Obuasi Municipal of the Ashanti region have been convicted and fined.

Meanwhile, the Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, has charged the anti-galamsey task-force, to be firm and incorruptible in the discharge of its duties.

“For your operations, we will continue to support you to deliver. It is left for us the leaders and Government to come together and look at measures that can be adopted to completely halt these activities going forward.

Galamsey activities have destroyed a lot of water bodies

“Just like Baffour said, we believe you can do it, but the illegal miners might hide and come back in your absence. You need to be very vigilant in your work. Don’t not allow yourselves to be influenced as you carry on with your work.”
