BREAKING NEWS |Ten Arrested Over Deadly Clash Between Galamsey Gangs In Tarkwa[LIVE]


The Western Regional Police Command says 10 persons have been arrested in connection with Wednesday’s bloody clash between two galamsey rivals in Bonsa, near Tarkwa, in the Western Region.

The Command said the arrested will help in ongoing investigations.

As reported earlier by wildLEAKx, a clash between some galamsay operators at Tarkwa in the Western Region has led to the death of one, with others sustaining injuries.

According to sources, some victims who sustained cutlass and gunshot wounds are receiving treatment at the Tarkwa government hospital.

Reports say the feuding galamseyers are aligned to the Member of Parliament of Tarkwa George Mireku Duker and the embattled CEO of Okobeng mines, Nana Amponsah, who is currently facing trial for his alleged involvement in an attempted murder case.

As wildLEAKx was unable to independently confirm the association of the factions, its being comfirmed now that police has arrested 10 suspects.

According an eye witness, the tensions between the two sides started after a leader of one of the gangs was put in charge of a community mining site.

The rival gangs have attacked each other on a number of occasions at the galamsey site until the community mining was introduced in the area.
