GOASO: Illegal miners shoot lady’s vagina, injure seven others

Some suspected illegal miners have reportedly shot the private part of a lady, and seven others at Pomaakrom near Goaso in the Ahafo Region.

The victims according to report were shot when three men who are yet to be identified went on rampage and attacked community members with pump action guns on Thursday, May 11, 2023.

Speaking to this reporter, the brother of one of the victims, (name withheld) said the suspects have been protecting some Chinese nationals who are mining in the area.

"These boys have been given pump action guns by the Chinese nationals and have been going about engaging in all sort of criminal activities.

"I was told that they allegedly came to the community on Thursday, to attack people who they believed are trying to stop their illegal activities in our forests and ended up shooting eight people.

"They aimed at persons and began shooting indiscriminately causing severe damage to us. One of the ladies whose case was critical had her private part (vagina) hit with stray bullet.

"They have destroyed over 80 percent of our forest in the community with illegal mining and illegal chainsaw operations but all attempts to get them arrested have proven futile as they always overpower police in the area.

"Our lives are in danger and so we are calling on the IGP Dr Goerge Akufo Dampare to beef up security in the community and arrest these men to allay fears in the area," he stated.

He disclosed that, while his brother has been rushed to the Okomfo Anokye Teaching Hospital, others have been admitted at a nearby hospital for treatment.
