The Amenfi East Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) of the Western Region, Hon. Helena Appiah, in collaboration with the Inter-Ministerial Committee on Illegal Mining, yesterday, led a task force to arrest two Chinese who were engaging in galamsey.
The two were picked up at Adansi, a place very close to River Ankobrah where they were practicing their illegal trade.
The two were using two excavators which have since been confiscated by the MCE and the Inter-Ministerial Committee on Illegal Mining.
The culprits were immediately brought to Accra and have since been handed to the Police Department at the Police Headquarters.
