”Stay Off Obomeng Stool lands” Chief warns galamsey operators

''Stay Off Obomeng Stool lands'' Chief warns galamsey operators

Nana Effah Opinamang Ill, the Chief of Kwahu Obomeng has called for government’s intervention for the protection of Obomeng stool lands as illegal miners (Galamsey) have taken over and are degrading their farm lands.

He said all efforts to get them out of the communities had proved futile and therefore asked for government’s interventions to help fight Galamsey in the district.

Nana Opinamang  said the operators had taken over  the  lands of Wawase, Wisiwisi,  Denkyira, Besease and its environs without permission.

He expressed worry at the rate at which residents who owe farm lands in those communities were blaming the chiefs for  the actions arguing that chiefs were unaware of those who authorised  the ongoing illegal mining in the communities.

He  called on government to turn its attention with the use of operation Vanguard to foil the activities of illegal mining  in the area and across the country.

Meanwhile, some of the Sub Chiefs of Obomeng also added their voices that, people are tagging and accusing  Nananom of allowing people to mine illegally on Obomeng stool lands while the chiefs and elders had nothing to do with it, and therefore called for government’s intervention.

Some of the residents whose lands were affected complained about their safety and entreated  the ‘Galamsey’ operators to cover the opened pits to save lives.
