The Owere mines company limited on Tuesday petitioned the MCE for Asante Akyem central Alhaji Braimah Beyond and the Divisional police commander SUPT Ohene Boadi Bossman over the illegal mining at their concession.
Mr Seth Larbi who happens to be the Chairman of Ghana mine workers union of TUC in an interview said, they have reported the issue to the police on several occasions but to no avail.
“the illegal miners have taken over our lands, they claim to have concessions here. meanwhile we pay taxes to the government but they don’t. will government look on while they take over our concession? he quizzed.
