Youth in Anomabo Brofoyedur, a suburb of the Mfantseman district are calling on the minerals commission and the Mfantseman district taskforce to put a stop to an illegal mining being undertaken by Joy Transporters in Anomabo Brofoyedur in the central region .
Speaking an interview with Okokroko FM’s Kweku Bee Abrante, the irate youth revealed they were arrested and stopped from carrying out mining activities and blasting in the area, so “why then should Joy Transporters be watched to carry out illegal activities of mining and blasting in the night without license?? If they have license why do they carry out their dubious activities in the night and pretend they are not working during day time?”
An attempt to speak to the authorities of Joy Transporters proved futile as no body could be located at the site although there was an evidence to suggest work still goes on with blasting in the area.
The youth further threatened to return to their blasting site to work if authorities don’t stop any illegal mining and blasting in the area.
