Youth in Anomabo Brofoyedur, a suburb of the Mfantseman District, are calling on the Minerals Commission and the Mfantseman District Task force to put a stop to illegal small scale mining being allegedly undertaken by Joy Transporters in Anomabo Brofoyedur in the Central Region.
Speaking in an interview with Okokroko FM, the irate youth revealed that they were arrested and stopped from carrying out small scale-mining activities and blasting in the area, so “why then should Joy Transporters be allowed to carry out illegal activities of mining and blasting in the night without licence?
“If they have licence why do they carry out their dubious activities in the night and pretend they are not working during daytime?
An attempt to speak to the authorities of Joy Transporters proved futile, as nobody could be located at the site.
The youth further threatened to return to their blasting site to work if authorities don’t stop the illegal mining and blasting in the area.
