When angry illegal miners raided the Golden Star Wassa Mine in Benso, Western Region, the police arrested 33 people for torching 12 vehicles, including an ambulance.

A number of the illegal miners were said to have been injured in the ensuing clash.

As a result, they left and reorganized themselves to retaliate.

The workers bolted, pursued by rampaging illegal miners armed with machetes and other implements in video footage of the incident.
The illegal miners were also armed with guns, and while a number of them had been apprehended, he couldn’t immediately tell how many.

Earlier, Gerald Osei Boakye, Golden Star Mine’s Head of Group Corporate Affairs, stated that one person was killed and four others were injured.
