A report filed by the Multimedia Group’s Erastus Asare Donkor indicates that some trained military men are protecting illicit Chinese miners in the Manso forest.
The response team in charge of combating illegal mining is seen to have found military uniforms on the premises where illegal mining was continuing in the video posted on social media.
They agreed to pick the uniforms but violently took back the uniforms picked up by the response team by the military personnel who drove in numbers above 30, causing a verbal altercation with some vigilante groups.
The military compelled the reporter of the Joy News to stop documenting what had been happening.
Videos were forcibly removed by the military people from the cameras of the reporters and the driving mirror of the car used by the multimedia been broken.
The task force was stopped from exiting the mining site and was made to release the Chinese Nationals.
But an order from the Military High Command and the Environment, Science, and Technology Ministry guaranteed that the task force was left to leave the mining facility.
